Well it was time for me to have another trip away to another corner of the globe so at the beginning of august I headed off to Wales to visit Rhiannon my friend from Brussels. I was greeted in Wales to some beautiful welsh weather, rain, rain and more rain, but we still managed to make the most of it driving through the country sides visiting Llynn Brianne a large lake. driving on roads barely wide enough for one car with large hedges on either side so you didn’t see on coming traffic until they were right on top of you. And after I curiously asked ‘so what happens if you meet another car?’ I was given a perfect example as Rhiannon had to reverse back until we found a piece of road wide enough for two cars, I’m glad I wasn’t driving! We spent one day visiting Cardiff, another at a theme Park which was terrifying and brain rattling, one at the beach although it was too cold to swim but everyone was on the beach and we had patches of sunshine.
One day we visited the town of Hay which is near the English border and is famous for books. There where book shops everywhere and sometimes just shelves of books outside for you to browse through and pop your money in the honesty box if you found one you liked. I visited welsh pubs, cafes and restaurants, had a go a pronouncing some of the welsh words and failed completely, had a welsh lamb roast Sunday lunch and headed back to London. An excellent week in Wales.

In London I arranged to meet sariya (a childhood friend) and we caught up for the night and then I headed back to Belgium the following day.
