Last month I’ve made a list of the tickets included in the Buckt subscription box for April, but that was before I had the chance to do any of them, so this is a short update with the activities with Buckt done in April and so far in May.
There are 5 activities in a box and in my post I’m going to talk about 6, that is because I did one from the March box in late April and I didn’t have the opportunity to talk about it on my blog.
We had a Choice of Photoshoots with Capture. As they have multiple locations around UK, we were able to book in Liverpool. I liked the experience a lot. I booked a week or so before our wedding anniversary, so the couple photoshoot we picked had a special meaning for us.
Everything was great, besides the pictures in the end. Despite not wanting having Photoshopping on our pictures, they did that. So, we only got the picture included in the package, but paid (a bit too much) to have a larger picture made. Now the picture sits on my desk and I’m happy with it. Overall it was a lovely experience and I’m glad it was included in the Buckt subscription box.
A Game of Laser Tag at Total Adrenaline in Hyde. It was such a different thing to try. We ended up in a group with children and initially I thought it would be strange, but it was so much fun. My husband and I loved chasing and being chased by kids full of energy. I’d love to play with children again, they were very sweet too. I loved it.
Escape Room at Breakout Manchester, right in the city centre. It was fun, but with only the two of us in the room it was hard to find all the clues. We picked a room that was a bit harder as well, so we didn’t escape. We’ve enjoyed ourselves a lot. It is the 2nd time I’m going to an escape room and I would gladly try it again.
African Drumming Class with Drumroots were also included in the Buckt for April. It was so hard! I was expecting to do better, but when I saw some of the other participants that had a few years of experience still not being able to make some specific sounds I realized that I had no idea how hard is to play the drum.
This was great and I would definitely recommend trying something like this.
We had one hour Game of Snooker or Pool at Steven Charles Snooker Club. We picked snooker as neither of us played snooker before. It is so much harder than pool. I did enjoy it and I would like to play again.
Skateboarding Lesson is the last activity I’m going to talk about. The lessons were with Projekts Manchester. It was one of the best things I did recently. I loved it! It was so challenging, but I was able to do much more than I was expecting. I’m the kind of girl (woman) that can’t ride a bike and I’m not very sporty, so my expectations were quite low. Even so, by the end of an hour and a half, I was on the skateboard and actually riding with it. Amazing! I think it was easy for me to keep my balance on a non-moving board due to being used to high heels, but the rest was new.
As expected, my husband did great. He was ridding around in about 20 minutes or so and he learned a couple of tricks as well.
I had to say that I’m considering going skateboarding once in a while, for fun… this is how much I’ve enjoyed it.
