In a few weeks we will be flying to Wales! We are very excited about going for this road trip with our friends Anna and Albert; specially when it brings back to my memory our 2011 British trip around south England where we had so much fun. Both Anna & myself are in love with the United Kingdom and try to visit little bits of the wonderful country now and then. I was very happy when she proposed that Wales would be a nice destination for this late summer trip, because it had also been in my mind for a little while and I was already envisioning all the good things waiting for us: green flat fields, sheep, castles, a mild weather (after 2 months of hot temperatures in Barcelona, it feels nice) and tea (because that is a thing all over UK, right? right? I really need a good cup of british tea)
So, to start warming up for the trip, and to use it as a reminder that I must pack my red raincoat again this year, I thought it would be nice to post a throw back thursday post (the famous #tbt hashtag in Instagram) with a selection of our days on 2011. We started in Bath, visiting afterwards Lacock, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Winchester, Portsmouth, Brighton and Lewes. It was a short but refreshing time that reinforced my love for that beautiful country; being on bed and breakfasts allowed us to interact with very sweet people & eating delicious homemade breakfasts – sorry (not sorry) but eating is always on my mind.
The pictures are only three years old but you will see a younger version of us with shorter hair do’s and maybe a preliminary version of our current travel photography style. We had back then a 400D Canon instead of our current full frame, and you can tell from some of the closer shots. Also quite of them are from the LC-A+ camera, which inspired me to take it again this year to Wales. Do you have any advice on which type of rolls should I take?
Do you have any recommendations of places we shouldn’t miss in Wales this year? We have several spots marked on the map, like the Pembrokeshire coast (yay! it looks awesome) but still not created our route, so any advice will be more than welcome! Also I love to have eating recommendations, so if you think we can’t miss some restaurant or any local speciality we would love to hear.
We will be posting the pictures as soon as possible, but we’d also try to keep our Instagram more updated, so meanwhile if you want to follow us we’ll be using the hashtag #wales4cats, and will try to convince Anna and Albert to join us under the hashtag, so we have lots of nice different pics.Btw, we are first going on a family trip to Sintra in Portugal for three days, our first time at our neighbors’ country (exciting), so you’ll also find on Instagram our family adventures, hope you enjoy them as well!
