The Year Of Adventure

The first month of the year is drawing to a close (finally, it’s been such a long month). How are you doing with your new year’s resolutions? I’ve noticed that the gym car park is no longer overflowing each morning. I suspect a number of those who committed to Veganuary are counting the days until they can bite into a bacon sarnie oozing with tomato sauce (that’s if they haven’t succumbed already) and dry January could be about to get a whole lot wetter.

This year, we vowed not to make any of those resolutions that are oh-so-easy to break. We made one that we really want to stick to and that will make an immense difference to our lives. We resolved to have more adventures.

That doesn’t mean that we’re about to fill our backpacks and head off travelling around the world. Been there, done that and bought the tie-dye t-shirts. But it does mean that we’re going to visit new places, try different things and enjoy new experiences.

We started simply – a winter walk in a previously undiscovered woodland, a spectacular Sunday lunch in a pub we’d heard so much about but never quite got to, an intense new exercise class and a challenging online course.

Then there’s the fun of researching and planning the adventures to come – camping weekends in summer, family trips overseas, new recipes with unusual ingredients to try and, of course, the endless list of pubs for Sunday lunches all over the UK.

We still dream of loading up the campervan and meandering round unknown territories, but for now, we have more simple adventures to plan and enjoy. Now that’s one resolution worth keeping.
