When was the last time you did something for yourself whilst also taking on one of your biggest fears? No. I’m not talking about the under-stair cupboard or the bathroom. I’m talking about doing something REALLY exciting and adventurous. Something you’ve never dreamt of doing. For me and Sharon, we did exactly this last weekend at Go Ape, Crawley.
Although I’ve done abseiling before, and Sharon a number of aerial slides in her time, neither of us have ever done a Go Ape course before – although we’d heard lots about it! Located in the midst of the gorgeous Tilgate Park, West Sussex – half an hour away from Brighton – it’s one of over 30 locations across the country.
When we’ve talked about Go Ape before or heard that friends had done it, it always sounded like fun. But there was always something that put us off. Whether it was our fitness or the fact that it was COMPLETELY out of our comfort range. It’s not so much the height that we were apprehensive about, it’s the falling that made us wuss out!
