Want to make friends? Try a sport! Last month, Anoushé told us how she overcame her fear of being a newbie. Here, she talks about the social benefits of climbing.
Over the last eleven years, I have lived in four countries: Luxembourg, Belgium, China and the UK. This has meant that I’ve had to make new friends, create a new social life and frankly start from scratch each time round. I have a very close circle of friends who I’ve known almost my whole life, one of which was the friend who got me into climbing in the first place! We make the most of the time we get together but we are all living and working in different countries and cities.
