Nature: the sporting person’s best choice

There are countless sports on offer. In this blog I’ve covered some of the more unusual ones, some of the most popular, and even those that are sport only by virtue of providing the body with a workout. It’s that last group that has to be my favourite, to be honest. While it’s true that…

My low-energy, high-reward summer holiday

I’m rather a fan of intense wilderness: climbing in the Himalaya or the Rockies and camping out in wilderness with animals for days on end, is my idea of a rewarding holiday. Or doing some extreme sports like bungee jumping or skydiving (as yet I have yet to go skydiving but it is still definitely…

Three of the best adventure holidays

For people like me, it’s almost impossible to sit still. I get anxious if I stay in one place for too long and that’s true when I’m reading a book on the sofa (and then the chair and then bed and then lying on the floor) or if I go more than a couple of…

A short history of online gaming

Online gaming tends to conjure up images of wizards and knights or elite soldiers devastating zombie populations and in more recent years games of open-ended, long-term exploration and endless virtual possibility. In this case however, with the word ‘gaming’ we are referring not to those glorious fantasy worlds, but instead the world of gambling. The…

Sport betting – tips & tricks

As long as there as been sport there as been sport betting. Some of the earliest form of writing we have are wagers and written promises of that people would pay a specified sum of money or goods depending on the outcome of an event. With EuroCup underway there is a massive influx in people…

Sport is a very important thing; it helps us become healthier, it makes us more social and helps us meet new people, and it helps us stay in shape. For all these reasons, people love other people who are great at sports, and that is not an easy thing. Getting good at some sport is…
