How to organise a weekend adventure

Posted by in Blogs

The when, where, how and what of organising a weekend adventure can seem so daunting that weeks, months, years pass and we never actually get anywhere. As you can imagine, the logistics of last year’s weekly challenges, completed alongside my full time job in banking, means I rank myself pretty high in the authority of weekend organisation skills.   Ideas, time and money are the most common excuses.

This is the last one that we can all do together so…read more
