RAB Day 3

By PaulChristie on 10 September 2012

There was no musical wake up call this morning as we were staying in our own rooms in Bath University, and even though I had a bed, I kinda felt disappointed :o)

RAB day 2

Today's wake up music was 'let's get ready to rumble' by Ant and Dec, I never thought I would be smiling when I heard this song again!

This morning was hard, waking up stiff, with a sore back and it did not look like it was going to be a good day!

RAB Day 1

By PaulChristie on 08 September 2012

The day started off at 5:30am with all the speakers around the camp blasting out "I want to ride my bicycle" by Queen, absolutely brilliant, definitely the right sort of music to get you going in the morning :o)

Open Water Swimming

By PaulChristie on 08 August 2012

I have finally managed to get out in the open water, and swim in the sea! I have been several times now and have become addicted, it is hard work, and can be nerve racking when the waves are choppy, but it gives you such a rush!
