Ooh Selects Second Round of $100 Supplier Winners
Background: In January 2010, www.ooh.com, the new online notice board that offers thousands of activities for people around the world seeking unique things to do, began awarding $100 to the best suppliers each week. The winners are those individuals and small businesses that list on Ooh.com and create the most compelling listing on the site.
Bo Brown’s Survival Skills in Missouri, Outdoor Ireland’s Kayaking on the Lakes of Killarney, Wine & Voyages’ Tour of Cote de Nuits Wine District in France and Christian Vila’s Kettlebell Fitness Classes in England are this week’s $100 winners.
Bo Brown’s Survival Skills
During this two day course, bushcraft specialist, Bo Brown will share his knowledge on the essential skills that would keep you alive if you found yourself stranded without tools or matches in the wilderness. Some of these skills include friction fire making, building deadfall traps, flint-knapping and stone tool construction, edible plant identification and more.
Outdoor Ireland: Kayak on the Lakes of Killarney
Explore the deep, sparkling Lakes of Killarney by kayak or canoe. Beginning at 15th century Ross Castle, paddle into Lough Leane discovering wooded islands, limestone caves and local history. With Nathan Kingerlee, an experienced, qualified guide, learn the skills to master your boat and keep a look-out for white-tailed sea eagles as they soar above Killarney National Park.
Wine & Voyages: Cote de Nuits Wine District Tour
Take a tour of the Cote de Nuits wine district in France, currently being considered for the title of Unesco World Heritage site. Your guide will explain the origin of the vines, work throughout the year, grape varieties, appellations and, of course, the terroir of Burgundy which makes its wines so fantastic. The vineyard tour is followed by a winery and cellar visit as well as a comparative wine tasting.
Kettlebell Fitness Classes in England
Join personal trainer, Christian Vila, for kettlebell fitness classes in Hove, England. Because you are using so many muscle groups, the energy demands of kettlebell exercises are much greater than conventional gym exercises. This means you can burn up to 1,500 calories per hour and boost your metabolism, so you’ll be burning more fat for up to 36 hours afterwards. http://www.ooh.com/uk/sport/other/east-sussex/hove/kettlebell-fitness-class-3_1649.html
