Finding Family Adventures in Croatia : Rock Climbing in Split
“Life’s a challenge… you face it front on and accept the bumps/bruises or you just let it wash over you and watch from the sidelines”
Great advice we once got from a special friend, and it means we vowed to take every possible challenge as long as we feel it will benefit us (as a family) or help challenge the girls. So what better way to prove this than with another climbing adventure, this time with ‘Red Adventures‘ in the Croatian city of Split
Safety was of key importance today and from the first minute, we felt reassured that both Marianne & Phillip were in total control with both girls fully harnessed and a two rope system firmly in place… even if the top right picture on this page might suggest otherwise!
So how far did the girls get? Well the pictures tell you just how far!!! It was high!!! very high!!! The rock face is set high up above the sea level below giving utterly spellbinding views (if you dare look over your shoulder!)
Was it easy? No not at all, they struggled at times but kept going… and will have a learnt a new skill.. Whilst the adults loved the thrill of the climb and had to be pulled away from the last climb of the day..
Did they enjoy it? I guess their smiles tell that story without me adding to it! They loved every minute! It’s just a brilliant way of ‘Getting Active’ and finding some family fun together as we are all very much at the same level…
Will we build on this experience and do it again? Absolutely… but it’ll be interesting to see which country sees our next attempt (perhaps Pembrokeshire in May???)
