Last week I made my first venture to the lovely, mountainous Wales! and … WOW. It was exactly how I pictured it to be, yet so so so much better!! I still can’t believe how close it is to me, and how easy it was to get there.
Once getting off the A40 (and making a rather large detour mistake) I reached the Brecon Beacons National Park. The single, winding road stretches right across from Abergavenny to Llandovery, and is a lovely route that runs across the North of the Brecon Beacons, with plenty of greenery, mountains and…sheep. I cannot believe how many sheep there are…. and there’s me thinking it was all just an over-exaggerated joke! The peaceful drive was just what I needed to clear my head. With my two favourite journey comforts… Landscapes and London Grammar <3
After driving through the Welsh countryside, and realising the sheep do not want to make friends (yeah it makes me pathetically sad), I was lucky enough to visit the Llyn Brianne reservoir. Looking more like a mesmerising wonder of nature, and with the sun just setting behind the trees, I felt so alive sitting at the top of the of the mountains, looking over the Lake, feeling so in touch with nature, and having the whole place to ourselves. I remember thinking how lucky I felt to be the only ones sat right in that spot, enjoying the evening this way!
The silence was so powerful. Being so far away from the busy cities, and worries of work etc, I love the feeling of being so quiet. Watching the trees dancing in the wind, and the surface of the water sparkle. This was the best start to my time in wales, and I have so much more to write about. So, i’m keeping this one sort and sweet, but just wanted to share my first Welsh Evening experience 🙂
