Go Ape, Trent Park

I’ve always been absolutely terrified of heights. As a little girl, when my dad told me we would be moving to New York City, and living on the 22nd floor, I was far from excited – in fact, I was horrified.

But for some reason, when I was invited to go out for a blogger’s day at Go Ape, the fact that I would be jumping out of trees didn’t phase me – until the morning of!

BGO Go Ape, Trent ParkI’m so glad that I went along, felt the fear, and did it anyway – it was so thrilling!

We were invited along to Go Ape by the lovely folks at BGO. After exploring the treetop canopies, we relaxed with cups of tea while playing their latest release – Kong, The 8th Wonder.

Although I was invited to Go Ape, all opinions are my own.
