The Amazing A-Z Adventure – Introduction

Way back at the beginning of the year, when I made those five silly little resolutions, one of them was to go outside more.

This is not a very achievable goal, as there is no attainable target, no specific timeframe and no real sense of achievement. (My resolution next year will be to stop over-thinking things!)

Now that I have a bit more time on my hands, I have given this outside business some consideration and come up with this: The Amazing A-Z Adventure.

It’s probably quite obvious, but here’s how the adventure is going to work. In the space of one year (May 1 – April 30), I intend to visit a location within the UK that begins with each and every letter of the alphabet – in the correct order. There aren’t really any other rules, except that it is more geared towards attractions than places, and it’s about variety, rather than just picking out all the zoos I can find. That might be my next challenge!

At this moment in time, I’ve already visited my A location, and I will be blogging about that very soon. I know where I’m going for B, C, and L. I have ideas for X and Z (thinking ahead!), but the rest is still up for consideration.

As per usual, I will create a page to keep track of how the alphabet is going once I get the first post up and published. This is going to be fun.

  1. I don’t know where you are exactly and how far you want to travel, but:

    N for Nottingham?
    C for Chatsworth House?
    S for Silverstone?

  2. This is a great idea combining going outside, blogging and organising!

    Would like to suggest the Isle of Wight – you can decide if it’s I or W. It’s a lovely place to visit & there’s lots to do. 🙂 (There’s also a zoo at Sandown)

  3. Great idea. I do like the A-Z of food idea too..

    Trying to think of places to go, I can only come up with racetracks. Obssessed, I am. I could wave my local flag and say Bridport, West Bay, Lyme Regis.. if you pick a warm day. They aren’t really ‘attractions’ though.

    Wherever you go I look forward to hearing about it!

  4. I love this idea. I am sure you have loads of ideas already so I won’t make a lot of suggestions unless you get stuck. However for R I would suggest Rockall. I hear its really interesting.

  5. Hmmm, if I was in England, where would I go?

    A is for Aintree ==> Either as close as I can get to the site of the circuit or to see what is now there.

    B is Brands Hatch. Ditto as above.

    C is for the former RAF Croft. Now Croft Circuit. To see what I can find from the old Bomber base. Really

    D is for Darlington Park. To come up with ways of now not to build an F1 track…. And to wish for unlimited speed limits in pit lanes and shorter lap distances via the pit lane than the actual circuit lap length.
