After a relaxing week off at my Mum’s I’m back into the swing of things in our busy office!
I’m tying up a bit of work and play at the moment as my fiancée is researching his Stag party ideas for the boys. I’ve already decided on a Pamper Party with Lia and Olive at Alexander Residence – well I do negotiate good rates! – And I’m so looking forward to getting all of my girlfriends round for Nadia’s Skin Care Tutorial and treatment package. I’ve been pouring over her treatment list but it all sounds so fabulous I just can’t decide what to go for! We may have to ask her back a second night!
The boys want to do something big and brash – go out with bang as he keeps saying! Perthshire is famous for its outdoor sports and activities so I was sure we’d find a package that would suit everyone. Find one? It’s how do you choose one from the hundreds on offer? What an amazing choice! Not one to lose valuable time I’ve tied this into our Facebook posts for the week so check the page for a different idea every day!
We’ve started with the Highland Fling Bungee! This is just half an hour up the road from AR and takes you through some of Highland Perthshire’s most beautiful countryside. This is the UKs only purpose built Bungee Platform and it sees you leap form the edge of a bridge into the amazing ruggedness of Killiecrankie. The videos on the website are stunning and having spoken to a few locals who have tried it out I’m told its one of the most exhilarating things you’ll ever do. Now, I have to admit… It’s not for me! But the boys are most excited!
I discovered a fantastic company called Nae Limits while I was researching and these crazy guys offer all sorts of adrenalin charged days out all within easy drive of your base at Alexander Residence in Perth. From river bugging to sphering (where you roll down the hill INDSIDE a giant ball!) you’ll find a few different ways to get your heart beat going! I’m thinking a Team Building Day out is needed very soon; rumour has it that some of the boys in the Algo Design and Build Team have honed their white water rafting skills on the rapids at Grand Tully so we may need a practice run before any challenges are thrown down!
Who knew a move to a small city in Scotland would bring so much to my doorstep – that said, I think I’ll stick to my pamper party in the luxury apartment and leave the rapids to the boys!
Have a great week – don’t forget to keep up to date with our Facebook posts,
