 Week Three: Journey to Holy Island and the South Stack Lighthouse 

Journey from Stone Henge to South Stack, an island situated just off Holy Island on the North West coast of Anglesey and the home of one of Wales' most spectacular lighthouses.

The South Stack Lighthouse has warned passing ships of the treacherous rocks below since it was built in 1809. The 28 m lighthouse, designed by Daniel Alexander, is visilble to passing vessels for 28 miles, and was designed to allow safe passage for ships on the treacherous Dublin - Holyhead - Liverpool sea route. It provides the first beacon along the northern coast of Anglesey for east-bound ships. It is followed by lighthouses, fog horns and other markers at North Stack, Holyhead breakwater, The Skerries, the Mice and at the north-east tip of the island Trwyn-Du. The lighthouse is operated remotely by Trinity House.

Individuals who pull their weight with greater than 70,000 points this week will be entered into a prize draw for a $75 visa card, a $50 visa card, and one of our concierge services (1 free meal at Urban Beach Café, 30 min massage, Gift Certificate for our Fluff and Fold, or Car Wash), and more!
 

 

 Week Four: Holy Island to the Roman Baths

Travel east towards Bath, the site of the famous Roman Baths. Here you can see the incredibly well-preserved Roman site for public bathing. The Baths were constructed between 1894 and 1897 and receive more than one million visitors a year.

Teams that successfully complete this 235 mile (470,000 points) route will be entered to win a team prize of $50 each!

 

 Week Five: Visit Nottingham & Sherwood Forest en route to York!

Trek through Nottingham and Sherwood Forest with a rest in York.

Sherwood Forest is home of the mythical figure Robin Hood. Robin Hood was a heroic outlaw in English folklore who, according to legend, was a highly skilled archer. He was known for “robbing from the rich and giving to the poor”.

This is another team challenge. Teams that complete the 235 mile route (470,000 points) will be entered to win $50 each!

 

 

 Week Six: Hadrian's Wall


 

Hadrian's Wall is the remains of the defensive wall built by the Romans on the northern border of their empire. The entire path can be walked in about 6 or 7 days in total, but most tourists want more time to stop and visit the Roman sites that they pass. Some of the highlights are the Roman forts of Segedunum at Wallsend and the Solway salt marshes with their amazing wildlife. There’s so much history every step of the way and cosy pubs, bustling market towns and amazing views to see!

Though most tourists complete the Hadrian's Wall tour in 6-7 days, we know you have work to do, so this week EVERY STEP COUNTS FOR 2 POINTS! You will still need to up your game this week and aim for 12,000 steps per day. Don't forget, you can earn more points with Healthy Selfies!

Everyone who averages 12,000 steps/day this week will be entered to win a $75 visa card, a $50 visa card, and one of our concierge services (1 free meal at Urban Beach Café, 30 min massage, Gift Certificate for our Fluff and Fold, or Car Wash), and more!

 

 

 

 Week Seven: On to Stratford (Shakespeare's Hometown)


 

Shakespeare obviously loved historic Stratford Upon Avon, the town in which he was born: although he went to work in London and made his career and his fortune there, he maintained the strongest links with Stratford. He visited his family and his Stratford friends regularly, he bought property in Stratford, and he involved himself in the affairs of the town.

Reach 75,000 points this week and be entered to win a $75 visa card, a $50 visa card, and one of our concierge services (1 free meal at Urban Beach Café, 30 min massage, Gift Certificate for our Fluff and Fold, or Car Wash), and more!
