TWS S2 Suprise! • Adelaide Goodeve
[SURPRISE EPISODE] When I built and slept in an Igloo!
"Lesson No.1: Building an igloo is very difficult!"
Are you a weekend warrior?
I try to make the most of my weekends, whether it’s adventuring, training or recharging!
I went to visit my best friend in Geneva a few weekends ago and swapped the UK’s snow for Geneva’s!
I don’t know if you’ve been to Geneva before, but I found it very challenging to organise an adventure in a short amount of time.
After a few hours of hitting my head against the brick wall, I remembered meeting Alex Narracott from Much Better Adventures, a platform that helps you to be the ultimate weekend warrior!
The day I left for Geneva, we managed to book Igloo Building and Snowshoeing with Much Better Adventures for the next day!
It was SO much fun, a fantastic way to recharge and re-energize and it helped me to understand the Norwegian philosophy of friluftsliv that I’ve been researching recently.
Friluftsliv (free-loo-sliff) loosely translates to: ‘the simple life’ or ‘open-air living’ and is a way of living in which you are interconnected to nature.
I will be talking about Friluftsliv more in the coming months as I conduct more research.
Similar to my special Svalbard Episode, I used the sounds I recorded and also an audio diary this time, to tell you my story of what it was like to build and sleep in an igloo!
