I deleted my Facebook account

I have been deliberating this for a while and I have finally decided to delete my Facebook account. I have disabled it in the past but now with all the news about data exploits its a no brainer.

A visit to Slovenia, October 2017

Haven’t been here for 10 months and have missed the place. Just look at the views.

RIP Dad

Tŷ Canol nature reserve, Pentre Ifan and the original site of the Stonehenge bluestones

Haven’t been on this little gem for a few years now. Some parts can be quite muddy but everything is repaid with the views of the enchanted forest that is the Tŷ Canol nature reserve. So amazing. The photos don’t do it justice.

This walk was a modification of the Pentre Ifan walk from circular Pembrokeshire walks book by Dennis and Jan Kelsall. Only this time I extended it from the Pentre Ifan burial chamber towards the now confirmed site where the Stonehenge bluestones were sourced from. The location is called Rhos y felin and it sits next to the river Brynberian and surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery Pembrokeshire has to offer.

 

Updated in 2018 with these pics:

A little boat trip

Went on a little boat trip with some friends on the Cleddau river in Pembrokeshire. They even served us fish & chips and beer and wine. Very cool.

Bohinj still rocks in the winter

An all time favourite hiking destination.
