So I've found a new hobbie..

My stepdad bought a kayak last year and being a typical teenager it didn't even cross my mind to try it out. (Like I said, sometimes you don't even think to try certain things)

So yesterday I finally tried it, I got in, pushed myself out into the sea and do you know what? I had so much fun. Yeah, the thought of jaws coming up and biting the end of the kayak wasn't very appealing but it was so relaxing it's unreal.
I paddled out a bit and then just lay there. Hands in the water, waiting for something to pull me in.
No, in all seriousness I really recommend people try it, it's fun, gets your arm muscles going and it's relaxing at the same time. I'd also recommend not going somewhere too windy if you're trying it for the first time, because when you're rowing against the wind you feel like your arms are young to fall off.. Good news for jaws eh?

OH and one last thought!  Do not take your phone with you to take pictures like I did because after I took the picture attached, I dropped it in the sea getting out of the kayak.. So yeah, be careful and cautious, even though most of you are probably thinking "what idiot takes there phone out to sea?" THIS IDIOT RIGHT HERE.

Go and explore.

Hello World

Hello, I'm Courtney.
I'm kinda new to this whole blogging business but oh well, I'll give it a go.

As I've put on my profile, I wanted to start blogging to inspire people to try new things that they've either always wanted to do, or never crossed their minds to even try.
I guess it's easy for me to say "try all this stuff" because I'm only 17 and I've got my whole life ahead of me, but time flies yanno? But it's never too late to start exploring new things.

It doesn't matter how old you are, everyone loves a good adventure, whether it's a simple walk or jumping off a waterfall;,it doesn't even have to cost you a bomb! I've done so much that's either been free or has cost as much as a pair of shoes from new look. It's just nice to cross things off your bucket list, even things that aren't on your bucket list! It's nice to say "yeah I've done that", even if you didn't like it, you've tried it and hey, it might be a story you can laugh at in the future or it could be one to tell the grand kids.

So yeah, that's all basically.
I'll put a blog up every now and then just to try and inspire some of you dead beats. (I'm only joking) I'll probably end up doing that a lot so try not to take me too seriously.
