Try out wall climbing

Hello Everybody,

this week we would like to show you how easy it is to do wall climbing. I am a proper starter and still managed to do the first two levels. It is very addictive and great fun. London offers many places and it is a great way to socialize. We have picked Arch Wall Climbing at Bermondsey (http://www.archclimbingwall.com).
This video was one of the first ones I have ever made and it was over a year ago. So nice to see how far we have come since 🙂
I have organized some group climbing this year and many of the guys are doing it regularly now which is great. And by the way my friend has just met Jared Leto while he was training so you never know, you might get as lucky as him.
I hope you will get inspired indeed and pack your kit now!

Top tips:
– use clothes you don’t mind to get ruined
– try to remember to take your liquid chalk purchased before or you end up with 5 of those at least (like me!)
– hire the shoes first then buy your ones once you got addicted
– book a lesson or find someone who has been before

Try out Paddleboarding

Hello Everybody,

Being somewhat at a loose end, my lovely colleague Nicholas suggested we try a lunch break paddleboard session in Paddington.

Although it may look simple, turns out it wasn’t.  However once my confidence grew the fun factor increased!  It felt amazing to overcome my fear of falling into the water, I honestly thought I would never try it and there I was paddling my heart out.

We hope you enjoy the video and get inspired!
We have used active 360 ( http://www.active360.co.uk ) as they were offering a teaser session!

Have fun!

Love, An

Make your own hat

Hello Everybody,

For this week recommendation, we are focussing on developing our crafting skills!

Have you ever wondered how those amazing hats for events such as weddings and Royal Ascot are made?  Perhaps not but it has certainly intrigued me over the wedding and race season!

We found a very easy to learn workshop which we guarantee even those of you with little confidence in your millinery skills can easily pick up; trust me!

We were blessed to meet Sahar who runs the workshops in London (www.saharmillinery.co.uk). Here you can learn all about different styles and techniques and create your own headwear.  The atmosphere in the class if very friendly and I can personally promise a high satisfaction level for a new inspiring activity, give it a go and tell us about it.

Love, An
