A year of new experiences…

So a lot of new things have happened to me this year. I have gotten married for the first time, I have graduated university for the first time and as mentioned previously, I have been on a farm for the first time. What else, you ask, have I done for the first time this year? I have tried two new sports this year: Curling and Belgian Bowling. Now I am sure that most of you have heard, if not played, curling…but Belgian Bowling? It is a sport that is commonly played in the town of Langenburg and the surrounding area. It is much like lawn bowling and curling in that you are throwing a heavy object across the playing area in order to have it land as close as possible to a pin. You knock the other team out of the way and you try to score more points than them. The throwing rock for Belgian Bowling is not flat but rather has a slant so that it goes around the pin and back towards it. Here are some examples of my excellent form in both sports. Note how my skills are much the same in both.

What you don’t see in these pictures is me falling…I did that quite often (more so in curling though). I had fun doing both, but they are both more difficult than they look. Good times.
