2017 Arabska School, Prague, sends an expeditionary force to retake old ground

Some years back now, Arabska Gymnasium in Prague 6 sent a group of students to Bridgwater every year. Originally under Dr Soucek, then under Pavla Pracnova. For a few years now they haven’t been over. But now they’re back! This time led by Petra Florianova they opted for a round trip across the South West of England across Wiltshire to Dorset to Devon to Cornwall, back to Devon and then up to Somerset and ending up in Bridgwater.

And here’s how it went.
