for those of you who don't know me, you may be shocked to find out that i'm not actually english, but welsh! i grew up in glorious north wales, surrounded by mountains and sea. and yes i do speak (some) welsh! unfortunately, i didn't realise until age eighteen just how beautiful this place is, despite the awful weather....it really does rain a lot of the time!
so this weekend we took our first trip in over two years up to wales to visit family. it was so refreshing to get out of the city and go hiking, taking in the fresh mountain air.
do you remember when we went to the bahamas and our floridian friends felt so natural and at ease in the sea, snorkelling with all those weird and wonderful fish? well....this place is my place. this is my natural habitat! this is where i feel most me, most alive. a pair of wellies or walking boots, a dog (this dog was a rather special puppy called charlie), on a long walk taking in the beauty of this country. i really don't think theres anywhere more stunning than here....the views.....well i'll let you judge them for yourselves!
