My dad usually has excellent advice to share, but because one purpose of our trip was for him to do an athletic event, I thought I’d use that as inspiration. Today, straight from the mouth of Dr Charl (aka my dad), I’m going to be sharing advice and tips for first-timers doing athletic races. Now this is pretty good advice for any person wanting to do an athletic event but is more geared towards people doing it for the first time. Anywho, I hope you enjoy today’s post, just please be aware that it will contain some potentially terrifying content (like marathon races and extreme amounts of training and exercise), but if that doesn’t scare you, then please enjoy.
London is an incredible city to visit. It is full of excitement and beauty and attracts millions of people every year from all over the world. It has a remarkable history and is filled with all sorts of attractions, activities, and locations that can satisfy all ages and kinds of people. The only problem with this fantastic city is that all of the hustle and bustle can be quite intimidating for first-time visitors, which can mean that people don’t get the opportunity to enjoy their time there fully. And that is just a terrible loss. However, if you note how ‘relaxed’ and confident a lot of people look when they move through the city, you’ll soon see that, with a few tips and things to remember, London is actually not so intimidating and is pretty easy to navigate without causing you too much stress. Now, I may not be a local in London, but I have had the privilege of travelling there quite often, and over time, I have learnt these tricks through a variety of experiences and talking to people more familiar with the city than me. You don’t need to be intimidated by London, as long as you have an open mind and keep these few tips in your thoughts. So if you are planning a trip to London and the idea of this international melting pot is intimidating you, then read these tips and soon you will be walking around and managing your day as confidently as the locals, maybe even more so.
