Rhik Samadder tries … mushing: ‘I’ve never known animal joy like it!"

15 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I have a dream: that dream is to ride a dog like a horse. That isn’t possible. But I’ve heard the next best thing is possible, which is why I’m freezing in a field in Tewkesbury. Gloucestershire may not be Lapland but...

Rhik Samadder tries … fencing: ‘Now I’m ready for the zombie apocalypse’

18 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Ever since childhood, I have wanted to be trained in the sword. But I have always believed one had to be born a musketeer for this to happen, or have a death to avenge, plus access to castle steps. But here I am at th...

Rhik Samadder tries … pottery: ‘I’m making a bowl – if it’s hideous, we’ll call it an ashtray’

13 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

It’s an awkward start to my pottery journey. I’ve arrived at the Kiln Rooms in Peckham, sureste de Londres, dressed as Demi Moore, star of the movie Ghost, and the most famous pottery scene ever filmed. “Should I have ...

Rhik Samadder tries… flower arranging: ‘I’m expanding the art form – and it looks rubbish’

18 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

At McQueens flower school, I’m trying to get my head in the game. I lack the visual flair for this. Whenever I make a bouquet, it always looks as if it’s been plucked from the central reservation of a dual carriageway...

Rhik Samadder tries … wrestling: ‘Although I am in tremendous pain, there is a goofy energy to it’’

49 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I walk past a very smiley man in reception, past a smelly changing room, into a matted space. It’s like walking into a Street Fighter II level. En un lado, teenage boys practise sit-ups in tandem. They rise and fall,...

Rhik Samadder tries … abseiling: ‘A family gazes out at me, looking sick on my behalf’

21 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I’m standing on the wrong side of the viewing platform glass at the top of ArcelorMittal Orbit in Stratford, El este de Londres. The standing area here at the UK’s largest freefall abseil is narrow, and feels like the crow’s...

Rhik Samadder tries… urban axe throwing: ‘Bullseye! I feel powerful’

43 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

The Whistle Punks urban axe throwing venue is not easily missed. You can hear terrifying thunks of wood from outside, while inside hatchets whoosh past at head height, followed by cheers. The atmosphere screams “frate...

Rhik Samadder tries … clay pigeon shooting: ‘I am a townie holding a little gun, dressed as Rupert Bear’

49 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Shooting a gun is like being prime minister – anyone with an overwhelming urge to do it should be given least opportunity. I’m the ideal candidate, because the idea of being near guns fills me with apprehension. I don...

Rhik Samadder prueba ... el ciclismo en pista: "Es como ser adelantado por camiones en una autopista diseñada por Escher"

141 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Este no es el lugar para admitirlo, pero odio a los ciclistas. Nunca sé si se detendrán en los semáforos o atravesarán; Suelen gritar mucho porque siempre están en peligro.; y lo peor es, t ...

Rhik Samadder intenta… hacer cócteles: "Hago un desnudo y famoso, y me siento conmovido, no sacudido "

30 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

¿Cómo se ve Stanley Tucci tan genial haciendo cócteles?? No puedo juntar una cebada de limón sin quemar la casa, aunque es una habilidad que anhelo adquirir. Por eso he venido al bar del este de Londres The Duchess of ...

Rhik Samadder tries … horseriding: ‘I pretend I am in control. I feel like the Marlboro man’

82 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I loved my driving theory test. It involved a video game of old people and dogs, the idea being I had to try not to kill them, like a reverse Grand Theft Auto. I assumed that driving a horse would involve a similar am...

Rhik Samadder intenta ... soplado de vidrio: "Me están quemando los tendones, y no tiene nada que ver con el agujero de la gloria"

42 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Mi salchicha al rojo vivo se cae peligrosamente. Esto no es un Allo Allo!-código de estilo de guerra; Estoy convirtiendo un disquete alargado de vidrio fundido en una barra de hierro, tratando de evitar que caiga al suelo. El calor es intenso, pero...

Rhik Samadder tries … silent disco meditation: ‘A man in socks and a bandana is romancing a tree’

36 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I’m shaking my pelvis with brio, when a goldendoodle ambles up. Don’t you poo, creo. Luego otra vez, doing what comes naturally is the point of today. My friend Beth has invited me to try 5Rhythms: a silent disco movem...

Rhik Samadder tries … backflipping: ‘My shorts are too tight – being upside down doesn’t help’

34 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

I once saw an inspirational video of a man teaching himself to backflip in a park, with a mattress behind to break his fall. He got closer and closer, but kept landing on his knees. The breakthrough moment came when h...

Rhik Samadder tries … mindful painting: ‘It dawns on me that I’m a very talented artist’

64 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

Have you ever forgotten to buy a loved one a birthday present? Here’s a tip. Get a card, then draw a picture inside of you giving them the gift you intend to buy them later. It’s a charming IOU, impossible to resent. ...

Rhik Samadder tries … falconry: ‘Chicken wire stands between me and doom’

116 Puntos de vista0 Comentarios

The raptor spreads its wings with a piercing cry, talons stretching for me, alighting perfectly on my fist. “Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror,” I whisper, quoting the poet Rilke. I’ve come to the Hawking ...
