More often than not, people make their resolutions for the new year based on 'giving up', be it take-away food, alcohol, or perhaps wilful spending. Although these goals are respectable, wouldn't it be refreshing to aim for something with a slightly more enjoyable process?
Make 2017 your year to be daring (not that giving up your Friday night curry isn't highly commendable!) and get those adrenaline juices flowing. Here are a few ways in which you can access your inner adventurer here in the UK...
