Between Places

One evening last week I was bored by TV offerings and took to Vimeo to try to find something interesting to watch and I just have to share this gem I found with you.

There is something in common between the arts of climbing and sailing.
The sea and the hills offer challenges to those who venture upon them and the acceptance of these and the meeting of them as best he can lies in the sailors or mountaineers reward.

So as I run my own outdoor clothing company I’ve had enough contact with climbers and mountaineers to recognise that they often seem to feel exactly the same way about mountains as I do the sea, so when this quote was shown at the opening of ‘Between Places‘ it really struck a chord with me and I was hooked.

‘Between Places’ is billed as ‘An Adventurous documentary about Arctic mountaineering and sailing along the Greenland coast’ but that doesn’t really do it justice at all.  It is beautifully shot, with stunning scenes. Even on my little iPad it was breathtaking. Importantly though too, it’s great story telling. I loved the human aspect as well as the landscape shots.

I do recommend you find time to watch it. There is something in common between the arts of climbing and sailing.
