Has anyone else tried it?
it’s called terra Aventura
it’s absolutely brilliant. I can’t recommend it enough.
Its so welcome to have a new hobby and one that you can do safely which is totally entertaining and keeps you fit at the same time. I can’t believe it.
It’s an application for going on quiz walks in nouvelle Aquitaine
If you hate smartphones you could just log onto the website and print off the instructions
Or go for a walk with someone who knows how to use a smartphone
There are getting on for 450 different walks all over the region.
We’ve been on two of them near to us so far and they’re really good fun
The the walks take you to some really interesting places most of them are beautiful.
Each walk has a series of questions based on history or local folklore architecture, artworks, landmarks or landscapes.
you can choose walks that are easy and short or difficult and long and quizzes that are easy or hard to guess.
At the end of each guided walk/quiz is there’s a prize which is is the collection of QR code which has been installed in the landscape in the form of a plaque.
You can take it as seriously or light-hearted as you want and be involved or less involved it’s just for everybody.
There are various levels in badges to win and collections to be made. They run regular competitions for people to design new walks and badges and local artists are used to create the hidden treasures.
today we did one in Angles-sur-l’Anglin and a couple of days ago we did one in Morthemer which is a village near to where we live in 86 Vienne.
it’s available in English as well but we’re finding the French is a great way to learn French, explore the region and get our well missed exercise at the same time
