“Once again Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs, Which on a wild secluded scene impress Thoughts of more deep seclusion"
Wordsworth perfectly captured the spirit of a trip to Wales in this "Lines Written from a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey". I'm not convinced there are ever days that are warm and sunny in Wales but I love it anyway. As a visitor, it feels as if your cares vanish as you cross the river.
Around the World
Around the world in 52 days. Not quite the journey of Phileas Fogg and Passepartout but we've been on planes, cars, buses, multiple types of trains, ferries. I think we should have thrown in a hot air balloon to round it all out but I'm not sure where there was time for that. According to the travel calculator, we travelled 24,646.037 miles over the summer of 2013 which doesn't include all of the driving around. From big cities to quiet beaches, it has been a memorable and absolutely fun-filled summer.
