Just a couple of months back, Sam, Hannah, Giulia, Sandy, the dude and I headed to Oxford for a day of punting. It was all new to me and I did not know what to expect.
Apart from Sam who has had prior experience, it was a first for us. It took the boys a short while to get the hang of it whilst the rest of us laughed and yelled as we headed towards tree branches and the edge of the river bank. During this time, I developed a fear of watching the person punting (specifically if it was the dude...) as with every unstable motion he made, I would be cursing, for fear of capsizing and falling into the river.
The truth is, I cannot swim.
It was such a wonderful day even though it poured on us at some point but this summer, the blog 'n bake collective has had quite a few adventures together.
Winter is upon us and as the year draws to a close, Giulia & Sandy are off to their honeymoon in a week. Hannah & Sam are heading to Canada for Christmas. As for me, I will be travelling to Shanghai for work pretty soon. It will be a couple of months before the bunch of us gather again but I am sure 2014 will bring us lots more adventures together.
