Wales

Having never visited Wales before, it was about time that changed. I bring back two main realisations from the trip.

1. Wales (near Snowdonia National Park anyway) doesn't have flat space, everywhere is mountains and hills.
2. Every field (and some roads and paths) have sheep in/on them.

The weather was indecisive, but that didn't matter much. We stayed in an awesome country club called Plas Talgarth. The food/facilities/apartment were all awesome, although a lot of the time was spent off the resort anyway. When we were on the resort, there was an abundant collections of birds and squirrels paying frequent visits to play and eat the scraps we put out for them.

We visited quite a few cool places, such as the Blue Lake for a hill walk (yes, we took the long way by accident) and a couple of climbing routes. Laura got the "Abseil 101" training too, so all fun really. This is definitely a great place for swimming/diving/cliff jumping (next time).
We dropped in at the Halo Factory Shop a couple of times for honey ice cream, and super cheap chocolate/yoghurt bars direct from the factory.
Other places included Cadair Idris and The Mach Loop and also Aberystwyth.

Enough of hyperlinks, here are a few photos of some of the places. Click to enlarge. (Coming Soon)
