Day five – Climbing and brownies
What a better morning to start with a coffee and a brownie! Honestly, if you are strolling around in Chelsea go and visit a little cafe named Brownie Box. I walked passed it a 100 times but never went inside as it never really caught my attention. Until the day when I was stressed and late for uni, slept for 2 hours, still half in my pyjamas and completely soaked as a car drove past me on the exact moment I ran next to a huge pond of water.. That was the moment I didn’t really care anymore and decided I would get a coffee and a brownie instead. Best. decision. ever.
Their Illy coffee is the definition of a perfect coffee. Strong, sweet and creamy. Combine that with one of their many different flavoured freshly home made brownies and no one will be able to wipe that smile of your face! No one!
So, climbing. I know right it looks like a children’s playground, well it is! Remember those climbing places at school where you could show off to your friends how high you can get, well this is exactly the same – at least with the competitive friends I have..and maybe a bit of competitiveness from my side too.. Which makes it even more fun as you really make your body go through a hardcore full body workout! While climbing you burn a lot of calories and you will find muscles that you didn’t even knew you had before! Honestly, an amazing workout and so much fun! – Especially for those who get bored in the gym, you wont even notice you are exercising, just climb little monkey, climb!
Today I went to a climbing gym named Stronghold Climbing Gym, which is located in Tottenham Hale, London. They only opened their doors not too long ago but I can honestly say it is my favourite climbing gym in London so far! Great routs – for both beginners and the professionals under us – great atmosphere, very spacious and light, good workout space and overall just an amazing place! – cheap too! Especially for those lucky students!!
You guys should definitely go and visit, common, be a monkey for a day! You’ll love it!!
