I was listening to a piece of music yesterday and was instantly sitting on a roof at sunset in Kenya, surrounded by big hairy rugby/hockey players, meditating. Obviously! Music is amazing isn’t it, the way it can transport us back in time to places. It was a really magical holiday.
We have no idea how we ended up on this holiday, but it was called ‘Wild Fitness’, and we were in the first group to ever go on it. It was part exercise, part relaxation and part learning about taking care of ourselves. The most important aspect being this sense of ‘wildness’ to the holiday, and the melding of fitness with our surroundings, rather than being in a gym. I learnt so much, and suspect that a huge amount of what I talk about here started out with what I learnt on that holiday. I keep nagging them to do a family version, but until then I’m not likely to be making it back. However, imagine my surprise when I was at the MADs award, to find out that the lovely Bangs And A Bun who was our MC for the night, had just been on their new weekend trip to the Isle of Wight. So here is a quick picture of one the the oldest and newest Wildfitness recruits (more pictures on the way of my dress I promise).
And a video for you to chill out to for a moment … (for my Kindle readers, check out Groove Armada on YouTube).
