|Me on a monster Segway (Excuse the slightly |
I have this feeling it stems from my mother. She's always taught me to live by the mantra:
"Try absolutely everything, No two experiences are ever the same..."
So it is fairly normal for mum to suggest that we go out and do something and then we go along and try it... This has included a family trip on a banana boat which ended up in injury. (But at least we can say we tried it!)
The most recent suggestion was offroad Segway-ing! (See picture over there >>)
I can safely say that it was the most fun that I have had in a long time. Maybe even ever!
After a few teething problems - i.e a couple of wobbles, the inability to stop and a hell of a lot of mud up my brand new clean jeans - we were off, offroading through mud and puddles in the forest.
Me and the family definitely loved it - am now threatening to take the BF, Christmas present maybe?! and so long as next time I don't have a rogue Segway* again then I need to have another go!
*My rogue Segway decided to run away when I was off and had my back turned. Landed up chasing it several feet which was highly embarrassing!
