Day 21

A travel blog entry by bigadventure14


Woke up to blue skies and drove to Devon arriving around lunch time. Great views across to Wales from our cliffside accomodation. We came here to ride the Lynton to Lynmouth cliff railway but there is a lot more to see and do and we could probably use another day. Roads between these 2 close together villages are ridiculously steep and barely wide enough for one car. You can't get out of first gear in places. Wish I had hired an automatic. The views are definitely worth it ...

There are other ruins from the Dark Ages just another 117 steps up to the top of the hill. The views are splendid but I have to wonder why someone would want a castle so hard to get to. They must have been very afraid of something or someone. It takes every minute of our 2 hours to go back down the steps and climb the hill to our car.

We we have one more stop ...

A Week in Wales

A travel blog entry by beckygooch


For the last half of the half term in October I went home to see my family, and we stayed in a wonderful house in Wales. We spent the week exploring towns and beaches, and watching chick flicks in the evenings. We had a lovely time with each other.

I have to admit, it is now May and I am writing this blog post VERY late, so I don't remember the day-by-day running of things now, but the photos I took were just so beautiful I didn't want to miss them out!! ...
