What we're about

https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/9/1/1/1/600_446797137.jpeg

Curious Kat’s Adventure Club is a community of interesting and curious people who would like to explore London, England, and well, let’s think big - the world in general. :) If you would like to live your life to the fullest, have fun, make new friends and meet like-minded people this is the place for you.

I would love to build up a community through which we can not only share our ideas and put them in practice but through which we can also develop our full potential, network and achieve our goals and dreams. :)

How will we do it? Step by step. We will get to know each other on various adventures. Whether it's the great outdoors (hiking, walking, cycling, sightseeing, visiting places, camping, day trips, trips abroad, holidays) or unusual indoors where we can do a bit of social networking (ice bar, jazz venues, hidden gems that only few know about), dining (whether it’s fine dining or just off beaten track restaurant adventure) or something from the cultural menu which is so rich in London (theatres, galleries, cinemas) - all the ideas are welcome. I’m up for adventure and will try everything once. And I would most welcome your suggestions – if you come across something in line with the spirit of this group, please email me!

The best thing about the community is that there is space for everyone as each one of you has unique ideas and all the ideas are welcome. I truly believe that everyone has something valuable they can bring to the table and everyone has some hidden talents that might need to be unlocked.

What sort of events can you expect to find here? We have some hiking trips coming up – we love travelling, hiking and exploring countryside, whether it is around London or further afield. There are some weekend breaks on the horizon, travel UK and abroad, once again they will be filled with adventure – hiking, walking, kayaking… I will look into organizing some city breaks as well – Europe is just one hour away! And finally the World – we will go on longer holidays as well. I will look into community projects in Africa or India or other active ways of exploring other continents.

How else will we help each other? We have a message board through which we can share ideas, unusual finds, jobs, freebies, skills and anything that others can find useful. I would love to create a support network through which we can not only make new friends but also exchange skills and services. If you don’t wish to receive emails about this however, you can update your settings and opt out from the message board emails. I know that once you are getting too many of them they just end up annoying you! ;p

If you like the idea, please join and please tell your friends: katsadventures.com (http://katsadventures.com/)

Please note, due to UK legislation all the events are for adults only as we don't have the necessary checks and qualifications and all the other paperwork (and there is a multitude of them) needed to work with children.

Please only email us if your query is not answered in the event's description and please only call us in case of emergency. I'm afraid we will not be able to get back to you if your query is answered above as with over 60 events coming almost 4,000 members and current volume of emails, this would require hiring admin support and setting up a call centre, which as you can imagine would increase the costs of the events considerably.

Getting there and back: If you are taking a taxi to our event, you try 'bounce' app. They are 40% cheaper than black cabs and if you use a referral code CURIOUS KAT you will be getting £10 credit straight away.
