A Great Welsh Adventure.

This weekend was easily one of the best ones I’ve had in a while.  It didn’t take that much to make me very, very happy.  A childhood friend, a van, ocean time and a lot of talking about everything and nothing resulted in a very happy Sarah.  Then add some crazy weather and beautiful views, what do you get? A weekend that’s hard to match!

West Coast Roadtrippin’.

Cue the weirdest week of my life.  Daisy and I were supposed to be road tripping from Surrey to Biarritz on the French/Spanish border, which is exactly what we did.  Although it didn’t quite go how we expected.  Flexibility and a willingness to say “yes” were both invaluable qualities required on this trip!

The Adventures of Little and Large Begin.

The familiar smell of chlorine washes into my nostrils, only this time combined with a fresh breeze off the ocean and the sound of the waves breaking as I stare up at the sky, which is fringed by the fronds of palm trees.  I’m warmed by the sun rather than the oppressive heat that usually is present when I can smell pool water.  I’m reminded of childhood holidays to Lanzarote, outdoor swimming pools and sunshine.

Being Alone Continued.

So I think I owe it to all the other solo travellers out there who are finding it hard at the moment to tell you a little story.  Being alone is hard.  Harder than anyone can really imagine until they do it.  You don’t realise how much you rely on other people for comfort, as a sounding board, for doing nothing with.

The first night in Stella, the novelty of being alone had not yet worn off.
