Goodbye Warwick Travel Society!
If any of you read one of my earlier posts on the Warwick Travel Society, the society I co-founded, you’ll know that it was only in term two that we received official status.
With only one term to effectively run our society, I’m so happy with the way everything has turned out- we managed to set up a blogsite featuring articles on long-term volunteering placements to city breaks, come up creative Instagram campaigns like #countryoftheweek, hold regular meetups for both drinkers and non-drinkers, as well as our first ever international tour to Latvia!
Having just returned from the tour, it’s fair to say that the main purpose of the society has been realized which is “to connect travel enthusiasts at Warwick”. Our tours are open to everyone who want to explore a new city with new friends and not just restricted to those that share a niche interest.
Everyone (even the people that knew nobody in the society prior to coming on the tour) bonded so well over the daily sightseeing and museum visiting, exploring the city’s cafes and hidden treasures, as well as the nights out.
This brings me to the point of this blogpost- it’s that time of the year where the previous exec members (and in this case, the founding exec members) will have to hand over to a new lot of travel enthusiasts. If you’re a current first or second year student, I would highly recommend applying if you live and breathe travel. If you’re a prospective student, be sure to stop by our society during fresher’s fair to find out ways for you to get involved!

On a more personal note, handing over the society is also symbolic in the sense that it’s time for us third years to leave the ‘bubble’. I’ve created so many memories here in three years (a large part through societies) but I’m also excited to see what the next chapter of my life hold in store for me.
