Sphering

This weekend we went 'Sphering' (also known as 'Zorbing') to raise money for Sue Ryder Care It was a good experience and gets the adreniline pumping. We travelled up to Perthshire and got there about 2 hours late because of traffic. The idea is that you then get strapped into a 4 metre inflatable ball (with one other person) and are then rolled down a hill :)

This is Dec my brother getting into the ball. You need to take a run and dive in head first.

Next you're strapped in place...

Me looking slightly pensive...

Now we're ready to roll...

The hill doesn't look too steep but when you finally get going...

It feels like you are jumping 10 feet off the ground. You obviously have no control at all over what happens until the ball comes to a halt. Great fun though, do it if you get the chance.
