A tick of the fabulist – go in the longest fastest Zipwire

Way back when on my 40 at 40 list, I put going on the longest Zipwire on my to do list. At the time it was in SW Scotland only to be superseded a couple of weeks after completion by Zipworld in Wales. https://adventuresofcumbrianblondie.co.uk/2013/03/29/completing-number-40-on-my-40-at-40-list-go-on-a-very-long-zip-wire/

A tick off the fabulist – Settle to Carlisle train journey

I had always wanted to do the Carlisle to Settle/Settle to Carlisle railway journey.  I love travelling by train, watching the world go by as I sit taking it all in.  Even better if it is a steam train.  In 2015 when Storm Desmond hit Cumbria, there was a landslide near Armathwaite which shut theContinue reading “A tick off the fabulist – Settle to Carlisle train journey”

A tick off the fabulist – do a photshoot

People may call me vain for putting this on my list but it’s my list at the end of the day.  Despite being a fan of the selfie and posting hundreds of pictures to my online albums on Facebook, I hate having my picture taken as I am so incredibly critical of how I look.Continue reading “A tick off the fabulist – do a photshoot”

A tick off the fabulist – sabering champagne cork 

I can’t remember how this ended up on my list. I had always been fascinated with how this was done. Simon, a guy I have known for years has started up a bar tending service. http://www.theoccasionalbartender.co.uk/ Whilst looking on his twitter account, I saw a video showing him sabering a champagne cork and contacted him to sayContinue reading “A tick off the fabulist – sabering champagne cork “

A tick of the fabulist – learn ballroom

When strictly is on, I always watch mesmerised wishing that I could do that. I never was allowed dance lessons as a child which is why it ended up on my list. I was lucky to find a dance school in Kendal, after not being able to do it before Christmas due to illness.  IContinue reading “A tick of the fabulist – learn ballroom”

A tick off the fabulist – firewalking 

Firewalking is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers or stones. I can’t actually remember how this ended up on my fabulist. After a google search,  I found there was a UK firewalk, there was a list of charity events which you could register an interest in. Luckily there was oneContinue reading “A tick off the fabulist – firewalking “
