The Year of Fun #42: Float Tank

Another esoteric experience for you today, my trip to a float tank. This was my third visit to a float tank, though the first at this particular venue. For those of you who don’t know, a float tank or a sensory deprivation tank, is basically like a big bath tub filled with very salty water. […]

The Year of Fun #37: Lunchtime Meditation

This is a bit of a cop out Year of Fun adventure, because I have technically recorded an experience with meditation earlier in the year. But, forgive me! This one was different enough to warrant another podcast, at least… I think so. So this was a lunchtime meditation session, just one hour, and a measly […]

The Year of Fun #35: Visit a Medium

Oh boy am I hesitant about sharing THIS one: the one in which I visit a medium. As in, someone who channels spirits. Especially after last week’s yoga one, or any of my other more New Age adventures… because this really takes the biscuit. And at the same time, I’m certainly not judging anyone who […]

The Year of Fun #34: Yoga Teacher Training

Oh yes, I will not deny this one is a bit left field. I mean, how often have I mentioned yoga on this blog or podcast, ever? When I told some friends that I was going to be taking a YTT 200 – or a yoga teacher training course that leaves me minimally qualified to […]

The Year of Fun #33: Botanical Illustration Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a 3 hour workshop on Botanical Illustration with the Yurt Academy. Honestly I was a bit nervous before I went, partly because I’ve never attempted a formal illustration class, though I’ve done a fair amount of life drawing. Also, botanical illustration is no joke! If you can […]

The Year of Fun #32: Host a Creative Meetup

I’ve been in two minds trying to decide what fun I could share with you this week – you might have noticed I missed last week’s fun update, and that was because I was away in Menorca (a small Balearic island) and had a pretty impossible wifi connection. So my debate was whether or not […]

The Year of Fun #31: Take a Pottery Class

Oh boy was I excited for this one – and it came at just the right time. September has kind of kicked my ass back into action, after a summer where I really couldn’t do much more than be a sweaty, unproductive mess. Honestly I probably would have bailed on the day that the pottery […]

The Year of Fun #30: Brighton Royal Pavilion

Brighton Pavilion is arguably the most stunning landmark in Brighton, and honestly quite underrated. I remember visiting Brighton a lot as a kid, long before I moved here, and never once went inside the exotic palace, I only ever wandered through the gardens. I admit I did finally go last year, but I’ve always meant […]
