Living an unremarkable life in an unremarkable little town, I was almost surprised to realise that, on reflection, 2012 was a great year. I travelled to a number of countries, made new friends and re-established old connections; I walked many miles in the rain, swam in the crystal Med and rode a camel in the desert; I ate gateau in the Blackforest, waffles in Brussels and steak in Philadelphia.
And through all this, pretty much by accident, I chalked up a lot of ‘never done that before’ experiences. All of which got me to pondering what other first time things I could attempt.
Hence my 2013 challenge: an attempt to do one new thing, every week, for one whole year. The challenges may be big or mundane, take up a whole week or barely minutes. I hope though through one or two to discover a little remarkableness.
The purpose of this blog is to hold myself to my word.
