ScoutingTrains Journey to Russia

Scouting Train has established already in August 2013 further contacts with Russian Scouts, organized the campsite and figured out why a trip to Lake Baikal is so exciting!

The route was the other way round from how it will be organized in 2014: Although started in Moscow, traveled directly to Irkutsk, then back to Moscow by train and plain!

Share the thrill with us and read our story!

This year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War Era in Europe.

 

Scouts and Guides from East and West are destined to use this unique project as an opportunity to ensure that no new walls will be build during the next 25 years.

Once upon a time there was an idea…

...the idea was to unite guides and scouts from East and West in a unique mutual project.

 

Excited by this idea, 7 guides and scouts came together, and lo, the ScoutingTrain 2014 was born. Numerous meetings, hours and hours of phone conferences and an uncountable amount of e-mails later, it became clear that it was not just an idea anymore – it had come into being!!

Our aim is not only to overcome the barrier ‚language’ but also ‚distance’, so we have planned a horsebackriding trip and other outdoor activities, too. That’s the way we want to show that if we have the common goal, we can manage such extensive projects, even without speaking the same language. Let’s be speechless!
