Zip World: Fforest Coaster

A few months ago Adam and I visited Wales for a long weekend of fun. We hiked Mount Snowden, and we zipped across the Welsh caverns on a zipline. To complete our action-packed weekend in Wales, we also headed over to Zip Worlds latest activity – The Fforest Coaster – to see what this new ride was all about! After a bit of a kerfuffle in trying to locate the site (don’t follow the sat nav as the GPS location isn’t correct!), we made it just in time to join in the fun. The Fforest Coaster is designed with the traditional […]

Zip World: Titan Zipline Adventure

As soon as we booked our weekend away in Wales, we knew we’d be booking one of Zip World’s zipline adventures! There are three main zip line activities to choose from – The Caverns, Titan, and Velocity.

We chose to […]

Once stolen from a friend, this New Year’s resolution is to try and visit at least three new countries per year.  And in 2017 I’ve done exactly that by visiting Vietnam, Wales, and Budapest. Hurrah. A full three out of three achieved for 2017! I think this is a great New Year’s resolution for anyone, and more people should take it up. Time and money are probably no doubt the biggest factors that hold […]

Reaching The Summit Of Mount Snowdon

Wales has been on my bucket list for a while, so this bank holiday weekend we packed up the car and went on a road trip to Snowdonia National Park. With a huge choice of outdoorsy things to do, it’s difficult to know where to begin. From mountain biking to hiking, zip lining to sailing the lakes, and of course, climbing Mount Snowdon! Towering high at an impressive 3560 ft (1085 m) tall, Mount Snowdon is the tallest mountain in England and Wales, and for some reason I casually suggested that we should go climb it. And so we did.
