“I really enjoyed Baby Bummit! I'd never hitchhiked before, and found it very fun and challenging - especially in the snow! I met some great people on the way down to Brighton and thought it was a great destination. The meal and club night were great too.”

“I enjoyed meeting lots of interesting people and putting myself outside my comfort zone. Would definitely recommend!”
