Isle Of Wight Coastal Path Days 3 & 4

Day 3 : Fort Victoria to Grange Chine : 16 miles (inc. popping up the road to the shops for a resupply) Camping in woods is amazing in that it's so bloody warm. I'm a cold sleeper, in fact I'm a cold human in general and end up spending stupid money on wool because if [...]

Welsh Industry & A Day In The Capital

We were going to spend our last two nights in Wales with a friend of mine, Rhi, and their wife so we duly packed up camp and started to make our way to Cardiff, but if you're going to spend any length of time in south Wales you should probably check out Big Pit National [...]

Stuff To Climb, Stuff To Drink

We had such big plans for Brecon Beacons. Tarrant worked out a huge circular walk taking in the beautiful rolling hills that'd take most, if not all, of the day given my penchant for sitting down. But you know what scuppers hiking plans? Apart from sheer laziness? Weather. The fucking weather scuppers hiking plans but [...]

Castles, Beer & Beaches

Coasteering For The Day

As it turned out though the weather wasn't that bad [...]

Llechwedd Slate Mines

On account of our unparalleled skills for getting lost even with a satnav we left the campsite stupidly early to get to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns to take advantage of their 20% discount offer if you went on a tour before 10am. "Llechwedd" contains three consecutive sounds across two syllables that make a non-Welsh speaker [...]

A Trip Around Anglesey

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, and yes, I copied and pasted the shit out of that bad boy! And no, I still have no fucking idea how to say it. It doesn't help that Welsh letters are pronounced differently to English letters. I'm trying to pick up a bit of Welsh while we're here, I've started to recognise a [...]
