    – surfing
    – windsurfing
    – kite surfing (*to be honest IMHO too impractical – too much personal space reqd)
    – paragliding (*to be honest IMHO too impractical – but bloody good fun)

    canyoning in the highlands

    I have a week off in June, wife and children are going off to visit relatives so I can do what I like. Now in the past when these opportunities have come around I've usually taken myself off cycling somewhere but I'm wondering about doing something different this time. Trying something new.

    I've thought about signing up for a weeks sea-kayaking but I wondered if anyone had any better ideas?

    Budget of about £1000, and ideally I would like to stay in UK.

    Some interesting ideas there, keep em coming.

    Sea Kayaking isn't a bad idea. I've finally got round to doing it, and have booked up for August with http://www.seakayakingcornwall.com – run by a couple of extremely laid back (and highly talented paddler) pals.

    It's something I alwways fancied, but was a bit scared of just going and doing it without any kind of skills, knowledge, experience. With luck a week's worth should give enough confidence to go on and do more exploring myself.

    That's the plan anyway.

    I'm going camping later today ! at FoD"

    Cant even take the bike as it would get nicked 🙁

    The Horror…… should be OK. But all I can remember of camping in the past was being cold all the time.

    Wish me luck.

    I was also going to recommend sea-kayaking. I've only done a day of it so far (with Cape Adventure way up in the far north west of Scotland) but it's definitely something I could see myself getting into.

    Green wood furniture making course or something similar. Would love to do this myself. Monty Dawn did a crafts show on the bbc recently and this featured.

    A bit of trekking in the Highlands? A good time of year to go and walking into the wild areas with your tent and food while had work is very good for the peace of mind.

    Sea kayaking is ace. Stick with your original idea. Scotland has some of the best sea kayaking in the world (Inner/Outer Hebrides), weather permitting.

    I have spent the day watching "3 men in a boat" on Dave and I reckon that could be a cool way to spend a week.

    Rowing up the Thames to Oxford, get a good view of the capital and some country side and discover some good pubs, get the book now and read it in preparation

    Well you wanted to do something different but maybe it would be boring without the missus. Italy-Fly over, average hotel as you'll be out and then a nice hotel and some romance on the last day.

    Florence or Rome.

    Or you could do for a walk around English Heritage Parks.

    See some outside Shakespear theatre.

    Paris?

    As above, some people want to walk along the Thames etc My GF being one.

    Once spent a few days sailing a boat round the islands round Mull etc. That was good fun.
