A WARM WELCOME!
First things first - an introduction!
I'm Chris, I'm in my 40s (early 40s!) and that's me at the front in red in the photo. I founded Adventure Solos in 2019 to help bring people in their 30s, 40s and 50s together for group adventures. We provide beginner-friendly events, and the 'solos' part means you can try new activities without having to convince your friends it's a good idea too!
Before creating Adventure Solos, I lived and worked in various cities (Edinburgh, Manchester, Glasgow and London) as part of a career in investment and finance. My time living in Scotland in particular means I have had plenty of adventures and I love helping to share these with others. I now live on the edge of the Lake District in North West England - a beautiful part of the world. I try to get on many of the adventures myself, although sometimes I'm stuck behind a laptop and you get to be hosted by one of our select handful of leaders (with all the appropriate outdoor qualifications) who will also give you a friendly warm welcome.
I'm really pleased you've found us - if you like the sound of things so far and would like to find out a little more, I'd highly recommend staying in touch by signing up to the mailing list, which you can do here.
STARTING YOUR JOURNEY
Most people that book on to Adventure Solos events are challenging themselves. Sometimes this is by trying activities for the first time. Sometimes it is nerves about meeting a bunch of new people. More often than not, it's a bit of both!
I was nervous before hosting my first few events too. So I've included a short video for you below that might help to put you at ease a little. Just click the video below to play - with sound on works best:
I hope you can see we're actually friendly, normal and sometimes even happy people!
It would be great to have you involved. If you're ready to find out more, take that first step by joining the mailing list section below.
LIFE CHANGES: THE ADVENTURE SOLOS PODCAST
The Life Changes Podcast with Adventure Solos talks you through some of those times in life when things are changing. We discuss topics such as how to build supportive friendship groups, why it's important to talk to people other than just your partner, dealing positively with relationship or life changes and adopting those everyday nudges that help you to stay healthy. We're here to help you find yourself and to lead a happy, healthy and well connected life.
