Wales

Reading back through my posts, it really does look like we go on holiday a lot. We don’t, it’s just that day to day life in the tax world isn’t very exciting so I try and focus on the times where we get out and about! In more exciting news though (and guessed by several people before!), we’re having a baby! Argh! It is ridiculously exciting and pretty terrifying at the same time…

Emily in Pembrokeshire

As we have very little holiday left before I am due to go on maternity leave in March, a couple of weeks ago we headed to Pembrokeshire, where Tom spent most of his school Summer holidays, to stay in a beautiful Sheepskinlife cottage. We stayed with them when we went to Scotland last year, and I really cannot recommend their cottages enough.

Once again, we were basically in the middle of nowhere for a week, cut off with no phone signal, 3G or Wi-Fi – it’s the first time we’ve done that in a while! We were crazily lucky with the weather and even had 3 days of sun! In Wales! We did some amazing coastal walks, as well as a very long and boggy one along the Preseli mountains, which apparently where the stones for Stonehenge came from!

We spent a lot of time looking for Red Kites (a perfectly normal activity for a couple of twenty-somethings I’m assured), walking around deserted beaches, and scoping out practically empty tourist attractions – Gwaun Valley brewery anyone? It was basically awesome.

Does anyone have any ideas for our next UK holiday? I’m thinking it might be the Lake District…
