I’ve recently returned from a week’s break in beautiful North Wales. It’s especially beautiful when the sun is shining, which, let’s face it, doesn’t happen as often as we’d like in Britain. Lucky for me, the weather was gorgeous that week and a splendid time was to be had. Stunning mountains, beautiful lakes, coastal walks, and fun on the beach – all this without the need for a passport. Particular highlights included Abergwyngreggan with a six mile round-trip to a waterfall, a walk along the cliff tops of north west Anglesey, taking in South Stack lighthouse, and Crittieth, a lovely sea-side town where we ate fish ‘n’ chips by the sea – what could be better on a warm summer’s evening? Another interesting spot is Beddgelert, and also Newborough beach – another lovely spot to chill on a summer’s afternoon. Without wishing to sound like I’m writing a review for a travel magazine; for a walker, North Wales has it all – mountains, lakes, beaches, and quaint little villages to wander around.
Then this past weekend, you’d have found me content and happy in the New Forest, camping at a great spot surrounded by trees and wild ponies. Another lovely part of the country; and fantastic when it’s sunny and warm.
Alas, I’m now back in flat and boring East Anglia. Looking forward to escaping to other lovely places in the future.
