“Keep Calm and Climb on…” (Said everyone watching me climb at the show…LOL)
This past weekend The Outdoor Adventure Show was held at the International Centre. Now, anyone who knows me, will say you went to a show that has the word: “Outdoors” in it? LOL. Ok, so I am not a camper and I’m scared of water, and yes, I am terrified of heights. However, when I saw the advertisements for this show, I was really intrigued.
When I arrived at the show, I immediately saw a booth that was offering kids the option to participate in a scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt allowed kids an opportunity to win prizes while learning about the great outdoors. I was impressed immediately. It’s always nice when events have games and fun things to do for the kids.
All I could think about was that Zip Line and the Rock Climbing being offered to guests. As we walked over to the Zip Line, I was trying to convince myself it wasn’t that high but I AM TERRIFIED of heights. Although, it did not look that high, to me, it was like starring at mount Everest. I figured, hey, if I can rock climb successfully, I will face my fears and try Zip line too. Guess where we went to next? LOL.
Rock Climbing looked easy breezy, ya right. LOL. I stood there and watched all the kids climbing this wall like they had no fear. I on the other hand, had fear. Audrey made it to the top. This little girl was fearless. She gave me hope, that I too could climb this wall. So, I want to congratulate Audrey for being a true champion. I tried to climb the wall, I really did. I suited up, put on the helmet and started my climb. They say when climbing, “Don’t look down.” What does Niki do? Yes, I looked down. I know I’m stubborn. As soon, as I saw I was getting higher, I wanted to just come down. Oh, I came down all right. I fell right on my butt. LOL. I did actually like it, until I looked down. So, yes, try Rock Climbing, and next time I will try Zip Line too. Ha-ha.
Now, I have to tell you about YOGA FLIGHT!!!! Oh my God! I love yoga but this was out of this world. Thank you, Slade for helping me try this fabulous yoga. It was amazing. I felt like I was flying. I never trust anyone, but, I trusted Slade. LOL. I felt calm, free and most of all relaxed. Sky and Slade, you guys made my day!! I can’t wait to try yoga flight again soon.
I had an amazing time at the Outdoor Adventure show. I even got to sit on a Motorcycle again! Thank you, learning curves for trying to convince me, I should get a Motorcycle license. LOL. Maybe, I will come by one day soon.
I need to quickly mention the food. LOL. You all know by now, I am obsessed with food. The show, does offer samples of different foods. I enjoyed the cheese, hot sauce, peanut butter and chopped Kale. The Kale actually tasted like Rapini. And that my friends, is my Italian mention for the day.
I am already looking forward to next year. Thank you, Rachel and to the Outdoor Adventure show for my media passes. This is an incredible show and next year, I will conquer my fear and get on that Zip line. Toronto, make sure to go to this show the next time it is in town! In fact, the show is now heading to Vancouver. www.OutdoorAdventureShow.ca for information. Until next time boys and girls, “remember, to always just be yourself, it will eventually one day pay off…”
I saved the best for last, my pictures!!!
