My experience during the Day trip in Yorkshire Dales National Park

As part of my internship, I have organized a day trip to Yorkshire Dales National Park. On Sunday 25th of March, we went to Malham. That is a small and very popular village in Yorkshire Dales. In this blog, I would like to tell you more about my experience during the trip in this stunning area of the United Kingdom.
I have asked my boss/tutor if I could organize something by myself for my degree. I study for Executive Assistant and one of my big tasks is to organize a trip or an event. Esteban agreed to my request and he gave me the charge of the organization. While I was searching for a trip, I was wondering which area was not taken by other organizations yet. Yorkshire Dales got me in a second. The pictures and the stories where stunning and I had to see it. My choice fell for Malham Cove, Malham Village, and Pen-Y-Gent or Janet’s Foss.
We went with a minibus to the Dales. We went to a public parking place in Malham Village and we walked as a group to Malham Cove. If you have seen Harry Potter, you know Malham Cove as the part where they were camping. I haven’t seen this movie, but I certainly have to see it now. Malham Cove is a huge climb and we had a lot of breaks during the climb. When you are at the top, you will have one of the best views of Malham and it was definitely worth it.
After the climb at Malham Cove, we went to the village where everyone could spend some free time for a lunch. It was really great. I have spent the free time in Malham with two amazing girls and we have had a lot of fun. The time was going so fast, that we had to finish very quickly.
The third activity was the stunning waterfall “Janet’s Foss”. It is a beautiful waterfall from the stream in Malham. The pool is so clean that we actually wanted to swim. Can you imagine? I don’t even like swimming! After we visited the waterfall, the planning was to go to Gordale Scar. But… the people who are knowing me very well, know that I am a terrible navigator. Instead of going up, we went down.
The walk was beautiful, but I saw it when we were back in Malham Village. I was really sorry and I asked them if they were okay to go back to Liverpool a bit later. Luckily, they were ok with it. It was not in the planning, but we went to Malham Tarn. Malham Tarn is a lake near Malham Village. The lake is one of only eight upland alkaline lakes in Europe.
At the end of the day was everybody very tired, but pleased. If I would do this trip again in the future, then I know where I have to look at and what did go well. I have definitely learned a few things during this trip, which I will carry for the rest of my future career.
I would like to thank everyone who attended this trip, and Esteban in special, to make this trip happen. It was a great pleasure to be a part of this.
