Segwaying with MAV is possible 🙌

Hello all - sharing some positive news on my Centre Parcs holiday…

So yesterday we went for a 2.5 hour Segway/Quad bike safari here at Sherwood Forest. I can say I survived but more to the point I actually enjoyed living a little again! Someone with a dodgy balance system riding a Segway?! Surely thats unheard of?! :rofl:

I will admit I felt a little spaced out initally but once I was on the ride I felt better. At xmas (time of booking it) I was having a massive relapse could barely turn my head - I remember thinking there’s no way I will be well enough by July to so all those things!!! WRONG :blush::blush::blush::blush: I have mostly cycled all over the forest whilst been here too! Done lots of activities and even had a alcohol free beer! :grin::rofl: I’m back to living life on the edge! :crazy_face::see_no_evil:

This is all thanks to Amitriptyline!! Its given me some life back for sure! :dancer::dancer:

I am due Botox in 2 days and I have to say I can barely notice its worn away right now! :cupid:

For all the people MAV tries to destroy - You will get better and you can absolutely live your life again! :two_hearts::champagne:

Good luck MAVers! :kissing_heart:


So good to hear you’re having a great holiday! Enjoy :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Woooo! What fun!

I recently rented some electric scooters and they were so much fun!
