My Year of (Welsh) Adventures
This week I turned 43, gulp! So, with current life expectancy in the UK (for females) being around 86 means, I am about half way…don’t click away, I’m not going on all melancholy on you. In order to celebrate making it this far and to welcome the second half in the way I would love to continue, I will be having a year of mini-adventures.
The seemingly serendipitous discovery of it also being Visit Wales‘ Year of Adventure in 2016 got me thinking. I plan to do 43 mini-adventures around Wales throughout my 43rd year, some with my partner and children, some with friends and some alone – all the adventures are doable by the average person (well a middle aged slightly podgy female with dodgy knees).
Some of the adventures I plan to do are listed below, my list is not yet complete and I welcome suggestions! There are several criteria:-
- They need to take place in Wales
- Do-able by me i.e. no particular hardcore skills needed like flying my own plane or free climbing a 7a graded wall!
- Not too expensive, preferably free!
