I have a real love-hate relationship with television. When there’s one on, I can’t take my eyes off it, but I hate myself after I’ve spent a day in front of one. My solution: don’t own a TV. This leads to a lot of questions as to how I spend my time. For me, the answer is mostly piano and books, but I got a nice alternative answer to that question today: archery and climbing.
Watching four friends spend their afternoon practicing archery was a very zen experience. We followed it up by a trip to the woods and a little rock climbing, or more accurately bouldering, as we weren’t using ropes.
I have a natural fear of heights so it was pretty exhilarating to free climb on these rock formations. All and all I have to say it was a pretty amazing finish to an amazing time in Germany, no TV required.
