Abi Adventures: Go Ape Coventry

For those who haven’t heard of Go Ape before, it is a high adrenaline treetop experience that takes visitors up into the canopies to challenge their fears and overcome obstacles. They have over 30 locations across the UK, with Coventry being the latest to open. Go Ape Coventry is set within the 500-acre grounds of Coombe Abbey Country Park, making for some pretty stunning views around the 5 courses. This experience is suitable for all the family, as the courses vary in difficulty and fear factor.

On a bit of a whim, and with no expectations, I liked the post and commented that I would love to win this for my Mum. Around a week or so later, I got a notification from Boots that I had in fact won the prize!

My Experience of Jury Service (UK)

This week, I completed my second and final week of jury service. For those who aren’t aware, jury service here in the UK requires you to go to court and form part of a 12 person jury to hear and try cases. As someone who is fascinated by crime documentaries, and has studied aspects of criminology and forensic psychology, I was really quite excited to have been selected.
