Mystery Trip Photos

wmo-mystery-trip-front-blur-for-websiteOur Explorer Unit joined two other local units in February 2016  for a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Their destination was kept a closely-held secret from the announcement about the trip in August 2015 until around 44 Explorers met at Edinburgh airport on the day of  departure.

Check out the 28th Giffnock ESU and Warrior ESU Facebook pages for some great photos from this memorable trip!
