Once Upon a time 13 teams (103 girls and leaders) from all around the Midlands Region set off from Warwick Castle to race across Europe writing their own Fairy Tale or Scary Tale. The teams visited 29 cities in 18 countries and explored 11 castles. They met Guides and Scouts from various European countries and completed a variety of service projects including beach cleaning, working in a hospice, serving breakfast to refugees and supporting the homeless. They used a range of different transport, explored other cultures, dined on local dishes while making friends and memories. Eventually they made their way to Budapest where everyone met up and took part in a city dash. Their stories took twists and turns, the plots thickened but eventually they all lived happily ever after.
