A bit of an in-betweeny random post today but I am just back from a short climbing trip in the Alps (Trip report here) and we are now days away from our summer holiday adventures beginning.
As I discussed the trip with my daughter over the weekend I also had the chance to reflect on the past month in which it would not be an overstatement to say that she has been "learning" to adventure.
Easy Family Microadventures
The Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild challenge provided an opportunity for both of us to share some wonderful moments and for Emma to start to feel the kind of enjoyment I get from the outdoors.
Based on some of the activities that we undertook in compiling our "Wild Alphabet" I have written a new article on Easy Family MicroAdventures. I have listed my top five from the last month but also added some links to larger resources and ideas.
I hope I have demonstrated also that getting out there is not as hard or daunting as it might seem. It doesn't need to be miles from home or extreme in any way, but a micro adventure with your kids is likely to bring you closer together and show them life from a different and valuable perspective.
Despite ignoring my love of the outdoors for a long time, I cannot ignore that it has, in the past, taught me many valuable lessons and will doubtless continue to do so.
So here is a link to my longer article of EASY FAMILY MICROADVENTURES to consider doing over the summer holidays. Can you do them all? What will you do? Let me know in the comments or on the Armchair Mountaineer Facebook page - I will be happy to share them.
