Weekend in Wales

Post by bzb » Wed Jun 17, 2009 12:41 am

This isnt in the right order and not a true story but decided to go for a play in Wales. There were some far more 'interesting' places but the need to clench outwayed the need to take a pic.
Fantastic country, but couldn't resist having a bit of fun with the story :)


Traveling down wasn’t too bad, its just when we got to the Welsh side of the M4 there was this breakdown blocking the carriageway that seemed to take forever to clear.
I know you shouldn’t get out and take snaps on the motorway but I thought I’d chance it this time;
Image

Fortunately the recovery company dispatched their heavy wrecker to get things on the move again;

Eventually we arrived at the Hotel we had booked. It had stunning views across the valleys and fresh air permeated every room. It was such a brilliant location. But when we asked at reception they said that they didn’t have a Tennis pitch, so we couldn’t really have stayed there;
Image


The next day we all went for a quick skinny dip, it was really refreshing
Image
But someone always has to take things too far and start making waves, so inconsiderate;
Image

We all had no choice but to get back out of the river and dry our boots off.
Image

Because we were all so distracted by the shameful splashing no one was looking where we were going and eventually the drivers had to stop and have a meeting to decide where on earth we were
Image

It wasn’t long after that Rob met a nice looking local. They exchanged phone numbers and i think she’s arranged to be dinner next week.
Image

After a long day off on the tracks we slipped back on to the main road to head for camp;
Image
The traffic was horrendous, bumper to bumper the whole way
Image
Around every corner there was just jam after jam
Image
Dam it! I proclaimed at the top of my voice.
But after a while we pulled of the main road into a side street
Image
But as ever someone had to be messing about
Image

Thankfully the tree lined avenue into the campsite was a tarmac road
Image
And much drinking was done that night, hooray!
Cheese is evil.

Are you sure its Wales? Its not raining, and I only see cattle, not sheep... ;)

Thinking about it you look like you should be a bunch of government officials driving around in those 4x4s.

I forgot to mention that I also went wine tasting and later on the same day we sampled 12yr,15yr and 20yr old brandy at the Van Ryn distillery after the tour! :D
