Scrambling up Tryfan’s North Ridge | Snowdonia

Some people consider Tryfan to be the only true mountain south of Scotland. It’s rugged and rocky with a typical pyramid shape and the only way to reach the summit is by using your hands and feet. We’ve hiked it a couple times before and we loved the scramble aspect. But this time we wanted…

Wild swimming and Boating in Snowdonia

After a few miserable weather days we were delighted to wake up to the sun heating up our campervan like a greenhouse. We woke early as it was a weekend and we knew parking would be tricky so we wanted to get to our destination for the day. We managed to find a lay-by right…

Misty mountains in Snowdonia National Park | Wales

I find it hard to travel slowly when there’s a place I’m really keen to visit and I just want to get there as soon as possible. North Wales, mainly Snowdonia has been that place for me. We’ve visited a couple times before and I just love the mountains there and that’s something our roadtrip…

The best place to see dolphins in Wales

Cardigan Bay in Wales is said to have the biggest population of dolphins in Britain, and one of the best places to see them is from the town of New Quay. This was a spot we visited back in 2015, taking a dolphin viewing boat trip which wasn’t very riveting. But I remember the boat…

Quarries, Sunsets and Boating in Pembrokeshire

We left the Pembrokeshire coast and headed inland to the Preseli Hills. It had been grey and drizzly all day and clouds were coating the tops of the hills like icing sugar on a cake. It seemed impossible but the clouds started turning pink and we realised we could be in for a cracking sunset….

Exploring Pembrokeshire’s coastline | Wales

We arrived in the colourful walled town of Tenby, a place we were very fond of on our previous visit 6 years ago. The town has rows of pastel coloured houses that look like a pack of refresher sweets. On either side of the town are beautiful beaches with crystal clear water lapping the shores….

Rhossili Bay and the Gower Peninsular | Wales

We were under the impression that it was a bank holiday weekend, so we thought arriving at Rhossili Beach on the Gower Peninsular would be fine at 5pm on the Monday. We’ve visited this area before but thought it would be nice to return but we regretted our decision instantly. It was HEAVING with people….

The western Brecon Beacon’s and Llyn Y Fan Fach

We really felt like we wanted to find a quiet spot for a few days to relax so we headed to the western corner of Brecon Beacons National Park. A fairly narrow lane wiggled it’s way up and down some hills to a beautiful location beside a river, perfect. There were two other vans camping…

Exploring Waterfall Country | Brecon Beacon’s, Wales

We were excited to visit the ‘waterfall country’ of Brecon Beacons as we’d never been there before. The first area we explored was the Four Waterfalls Hike which we needed to access via some country lanes. We passed one carpark but I knew there was another one closer to the hike so we headed for…
