Wales

Here’s a fun fact, I (Tegan) am 1/4 Welsh, my Granddad was a born and bred Welshman! So lucky for us, I have relatives there! Most of whom I hadn’t met but took us in and showed us a good time. Thanks! To get here we jumped on the National Express bus. There seem to be 2 big bus companies in the UK- Megabus and National Express. London to Wales for about $60 each, which is about half the price of the train. It’s a 4ish hour drive but it’s beautiful driving through the countryside. We arrived in Solva to an absolutely gorgeous cottage where my great Aunty and Uncle live. It’s a magical magical spot.

A day well spent out at Tenby. It’s such colourful town that gives an instant cheery feeling. Despite the clouds you can’t help but feel a little happier, thanks David for taking us there 🙂

In May the wild flowers were in full bloom! Everywhere you go there are bluebells and daisies and so many different flowers in every colour, it is SO magic. Bluebell woods was right on the doorstep of the cottage 😀

We spent a day visiting Porthgain, Aber Mawr, Tregwynt, Pwllderi, Fishguard, Pwllgwealiog, Cwn-yr Ewlls and Dinas Head. Don’t worry, I can’t pronounce any of them either. Truly beautiful places though! We had super fresh fish and chips down on White Sands beach, a popular surfing spot when the conditions are right. Thanks again to Andy and Margaret for driving us all around!!

St Davids & Coastal walkway

St Davids Catherdral was just up the road, Andy dropped us there so we could go for a wander and check it out.  It was built in 1180. A part of the coastal track runs from St Davids back to Solva. Apparently it’s about 4 miles, but it felt much longer! The wild flowers are out all over the track…so many vibrant colours.

Ventured to Little Haven for a final dinner with family and a beautiful sunset over the ocean. Thanks Alison and William 🙂

Can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity, and showing us this slice of beauty, it was greatly appreciated! We will be back 🙂
