“Having heard about Thinking Bob I initially joined after looking at all the interesting, fun, unique events that they put on, many of which I’d wanted to do myself for ages. What I got out of joining was so much more. Not only did I have fantastic experiences at these events, I got to meet the most amazing people, some of them becoming some of my closest friends. Thinking Bob gave me a whole new friendship group. It’s more than getting to do events it’s joining a wonderful community.”

~ Mark

“While London is an amazing city, its magnitude can leave one feeling quite isolated.  Thinking Bob has not only been my antidote to this type of ‘metropolitan blues’, it’s gifted me a second family I’d be lost without.  The fun, engaging, and intellectually stimulating adventures I’ve had with Thinking Bob are among the highlights of my time here in London; but the people I’ve met through Bob are the treasures I’ll carry with me for all my life.”

~ Aja
