Excitement builds as Bermuda's 'venturers' get set for the trip of a lifetime to Sabah

Here's an interesting article/insight from The Royal Gazette, Bermuda's only daily newspaper, for your reading pleasure:

BERMUDIANS are famous for travelling far and wide, but few have made as ambitious a journey as some of the young "venturers" off on British Airways to London tomorrow night with Raleigh International Bermuda (RIB).

For the flight to London is only the first leg of a three-flight marathon which will see the party of 12 take three days to get to their very distant destination; after a day to see some of the sights of London, and a chance to meet some of the other volunteers and young members of the expedition, they will board a Royal Brunei Airlines flight to Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei, then take a one-hour flight to their final destination, Kota Kinabalu in the Malaysian province of Sabah.

Four students from the Berkeley Institute and four from CedarBridge Academy will be joined by three representatives of the island's community centres and a staff volunteer to take part in an impressive international and multicultural effort.
