We recently took a short road trip to visit Wales in the UK in order to splash around in beautiful waterfalls, take long quiet walks in lush countryside, take lunches at pubs and last but not least to visit the the beach.

I would absolutely recommend a trip out to Wales for a few days walking or beach bathing, it's stunning and also very quiet. The perfect get away if you're used to the bustle of the city. Here are some of my highlights.

We began our trip by taking the Four Falls Trail, beginning at Cwm Porth car park, where the River Mellte vanishes into the biggest cave entrance in Wales. A truly stunning day of walking! (More details here)

We finished our trip with a few days at the gower, a long, lovely stretch of beach and plenty of room for camping nearby, if, like me you love the thrill of waking up by the beach. (More here)
