Our adventure started on a Thursday in March, we drove a VW California across country to the Pembrookeshire coast of Wales, it took us around 6 and a half hours including a cheeky stop to KFC on our way there.
I was a little bit concern at first, as I never being camping before and to be honest the idea of sleeping in a car or even worse in a tent didn’t sound like “fun” to me – lets put it this way, I prefer a comfortable bed in a warm hotel room –
Of course, my thoughts changed completely after arriving at our destination, I couldn’t avoid falling in love with the beautiful and peaceful views. Sometimes, we need to step out of our comfort zone to discover things about ourself that we may have never seen before. That is what fun is!
First stop: St. Davids
St. Davids is Britain’s smallest city with a population of just over 1,841. This city has a beautiful Cathedral and Palace, lovely shops and stunning views from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. We stayed in a campsite called Celtic Camping & bunkhouse. The views across the Irish Sea from the camping were just beautiful.
Second stop: Aberdaron
Aberdaron is a lovely village with fantastic views – It was all about nature, views and walks – We stayed in a campsite called Mynydd Mawr, located right at the far end of the Llyn Peninsula which is ideal for fun walks and of course stunning sunsets.
Third stop: Rhossili Beach
We drove for more than 4 hours to our finally destination in Rhossili. This place harbours one of the most stunning beaches in Wales “Rhossili Bay Beach”. After a lovely walk around the beach we stopped for some food – a delicious Sunday roast -.
We had such a lovely time in Wales, I learnt something new about myself and I am still thinking about those stunning views, the sea and the delicious olives that we had in a restaurant in “Aberdaron”.
Wales was definetly an Aventure. I mean, what else could you ask for? Oh, maybe a new pair of Timberland 6-Inch boots to match my pink beanie – just saying-.
If you wonder how I survive on our camping adventure, do not forget to come back and check my next post, you will definitely find some answers.
A little something: If you plan to visit any of these campsites I would strongly recommend you to book them in advance as some months (especially in summer) they can be complete booked! Places to eat in Rhossili: Breakfast/Snacks: The Bay Bistro & Coffee House Lunch/ Dinner: The Worm’s Head Hotel
