The Llanberis Path Snowdon Hike As A Non Mountain Climber! Wales, UK

Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, with a summit of 3559ft/1085m.  It is the 2nd highest mountain in the ‘Three Peaks Challenge‘, a popular hiking challenge where participants have to climb the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), Wales (Snowdon) and England (Scafell Pike).  Usually the aim of the challenge is to climb all 3 in 24 hours but some people choose to stretch it out to 3 days, climbing one a day.  Now I’m no mountain climber, I didn’t even walk UP Snowdon, only down, and it took me a couple of days to recover, so kudos to the hikers that do all 3 in a short amount of time!

Going To The Beach This Summer? DON’T FEED SEAGULLS!!

I have a bit of a love hate relationship when it comes to seagulls.  I always go on and on about how I love the Great British seaside and going to the beach just isn’t the same without their constant squawking noise.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  But I find that I’m starting to hate them because they poop on you, they are big and scary and they are turning into menaces and it’s the fault of the human population.  Why? Because people keep feeding seagulls!!!

30+ DJI Spark Drone Photos That Will Inspire You To Travel

It’s no secret that I love my DJI Spark drone!  It gives you a whole different perspective of your surroundings.  As a camera, I find that the pictures come out so well that they require minimal editing…most of these photos have had no editing at all!  It’s small enough that I’ve still been able to carry on travelling with just cabin baggage, despite having all the extra gear.
