Staying out for the Summer   8 comments

Time for the Surfnslide family to head off for their jolly summer holidays so blog silence will be golden for a few weeks while we take our recent customary trip to France. We’ll be taking in the Auvergne and Tarn Gorge on the way down and spending a couple of weeks in a nice villa in the foothills of the Pyrenees near Perpignan. Lots of lazing by the pool and hopefully some mountain walking for me. I hope to climb Canigou, the highest mountain in the region and also explore some of the high ridges. Very much a trip into the unknown as I can’t find a guidebook that covers this part of the range but all the more fun for that.

On the way home we’ll be taking a couple of days in the Dordogne having never been there before so hopefully some more river kayaking and castle-bagging will be on the cards before heading home. For anyone who may have nothing better to do then you can get an early flavour for our adventures if you look at my Family Trips page which has all our trips and the like from last year together with some rather nice tunes and slide shows though I say it myself.

I’m still a couple of posts behind which I haven’t had time to write-up. Our usual trip to north Wales with some beach antics, a trip to Beaumaris castle on Anglesey and a walk on the The Rivals, a cracking little collection of hills on the Lleyn Peninsula. Here are a couple of photos to whet the appetite in case you need a fix 🙂

  1. The coastline photo is lovely! Have a great holiday.


    • Thanks Roxy – it’s a really lovely part of north wales and pretty quiet and unspoilt by UK coast standards. Lots more photos, vids and music to come when I get from France


  2. Have a good one Andy. How do you manage to get so much time off? Or are you packing alot into a short space of time?
    All the best


    • Thanks Mark. I try and make sure that I make te most of every day off work I take, never waste a days holioday just sitting at home is my motto. We’re off for 3 weeks and we do pack a lot in but no more time off this year after I get back. I hear there is some better weather on the way for the end of the week, just as I head off 🙂


  3. Hope you all have a great time – and get some decent weather.
    (Hadrian’s Wall was cracking BTW, the write up may have to wait till the Olympics are over.)


  4. Have a great holiday Andy.
