When I travel round the country giving talks (I’m available for Weddings, Bar-Mitzvahs and Funerals…) I try to take the opportunity to squeeze in a microadventure.
Last week I was speaking in Scotland so seized the chance to build a wild hut with Kevin Langan who is steadily working through the construction of 100 Wild Huts. Also helping out, high on the beautiful cliffs above Perth, were photographer Richard Patterson and fellow adventurer Mark Beaumont. Rich made these fantastic 360 degree panoramas of our labours.
I absolutely loved building this hut.
Spending time pottering around the woods, clearing my head and working hard, chatting to interesting guys, and escaping for life for a while… I recommend this to anyone who can’t quite be bothered with any of my more strenuous microadventure suggestions!
Building a wild hut, cooking on a fire, and sleeping on a hilltop are good for the soul.
Here’s a short video showing how we got on.
And how’s this for a view to wake up to? It’s from my Instagram stream…
