I don't know when it happened, but at some point I went from a 20+ something belting out one of Blur's greatest hits with an oversized pint as they closed Glastonbury, to a 30+ something wedged halfway down a Little Tykes slide!

Add to all this thematic extras like troublesome customers, club upgrades, random historical events, a fully functioning campaign mode and the ever present threat of getting closed down by Prohibition Agents, it would seem that The Opulent has all the raw ingredients to make the perfect gaming experience.

I don't know about you but I find it hard to wind down in the evenings. Sometimes my girlfriend and I sit there and 'watch' a tv show, but we'll both be scrolling through nonsense on phones or the iPad, so we never really properly switch off. It's the electronic distraction of modern life that's thrust me back into the arms of a relationship I'd ended in the early 90s - board gaming.

Fast forward to my twenties and after my university graduation; health, learning and leisure took a back seat. I'd wake up early, go to work in the office Monday to Friday 9-5, eat and sleep. Even after going self employed I'd spend every waking hour planning and executing how to earn enough money for my survival.

By many accounts, Switzerland is the most expensive country in the world. It's also one of the most beautiful and offers superb skiing. It would be a shame to dismiss it entirely on grounds of cost.

This will be my third time and I am really looking forward to it. Not just the week, but the travel experience since I am simply 2 trains away from Brussels, traveling on the Eurostar. It is a little known fact that wheelchair users always travel first class on the Eurostar, which is always a nice start and finish to my week.

There Should be No Benefit to Being Disabled

I would like to propose that there should not be a benefit to being disabled, and that this means understanding what specific 'benefits' are really about, which sometimes even those who provide them have forgotten.

Disabled People Can Work, Rest and Play

I believe one of the biggest problems for disabled people who do not work, is the unnecessary stresses and strains of not working on the mind as boredom can be much more damaging than any amount of hard work.
