The Ape-ic Hangout

Last Sunday, I was invited by the Joe Blogs Network to join my fellow bloggers to hang and monkey around. Sounds pretty easy for me to do, no? But it was ape-solutely an afternoon filled with thrilling tarzan-swings, zip-lining, and tons of tree-top fun and adventure. We completely went bananas!

We gathered at Go Ape in trent Park for the #bgoape event. It was amazing to be in a forest filled with tree-topped obstacle courses in London! The whole course park reminded me of my favourite tv show, The Takeshi's Castle. Good thing there weren't cannon balls shot off as we were threading the highwires and swinging for the safety nets.

A very reassuring reminder.

Our BEST friends that day were a number of metal harnesses and safety lines. I could really say, I'm glad I was overly-attached for a day. Go Ape would say, just 'live life adventurously.' And we surely did! After our safety demos and warmups and signing off our waiver forms(!), we got the tree-party started.

 Somebody else was on a look-out for us if we went OTT
There's the word 'GO' in Vertigo for a reason.

I planned it differently on my head.

Presenting the victors and conquerors (and survivors) of the #bgoape challenge!!!
(Yes, bloggers can be rough and tough too!)

Need to have that groufie!

There's the evidence, woot!
After all the monkey business and tree-hopping, we were treated to a well-deserved feast at the cafe. We were then faced by a familiar monkey with a twist, bgo's Kong: The 8th Wonder slot game. I'm not sure whether the adrenalin rush from hanging and swinging led me to over-spinning! But I did manage to earn some change for some free spins, not too bad eh. 

Here is the gopro version of the #bgoape. 
Warning: Loads of unplanned video selfies!

Major thanks again to the Joe Blogs Network, Go Ape, bgo and of course to the cheeky monkey bloggers for the ape-ic hangout!
