Easter Holidays started last week and to celebrate, Lauren took me and the kids to stay at a hostel in Broad Haven, Wales!
We left the house on Monday and visited Berkeley Castle. There were dragons and many paintings of people that passed away a very long time ago. The cool thing is that the family that owns the castle still lives there. Also, there were a lot of famous people that had connections to Berkeley Castle (Shakespeare, King Edward II was murdered in this castle). After Berkeley Castle, we moved on to Stroud, where we spent the night.
Then, on Tuesday, we drove to Tenby. We walked around the town and the beach and had some ice cream. Then it started to rain and we decided to go to the hostel. The kids were absolutely horrible and Lauren and I weren’t in the mood to do anything else with them.
I had a great day on Wednesday. Because the kids had been so horrible on Tuesday, Lauren gave me the day off. They went to see St. David’s (smallest city in the UK) and visited a bug farm while I stayed in Broad Haven. I did some yoga, walked along the beach and on the cliffs (absolutely beautiful, but also very muddy) and then went back to the hostel to do some work and read. When Lauren and the kids were back, I went out for dinner at the only pizza place in Broad Haven. Don’t go there, it was really salty and not good.
Thursday, we went to Skomer Island to see all the puffins. We walked around on some cliffs and then went on the boat. It was absolutely freezing and I didn’t really take any pictures because, at this point, my camera stopped working and I couldn’t be bothered to take out my phone. There were loads of puffins and seals and it was really cool to see.
And on Friday we drove back home. Halfway through, we stopped at a National Trust House, just to stretch our legs for a bit. and we got back to Aldershot around 5 o’clock, which meant I had just enough time to put some laundry in and pack my bags for my trip to the Lake District! More on that next week, but here are some pictures from Wales.
