Summer Holidays

So this summer holiday I think has been one of the best ones to date, I've been in Wales for a week catching up with 2nd cousins and distant relatives I haven't seen in years. A week later we headed down to London to do several touristy things. Then the next week I went on a short trip to the Lake District.

~Week 1~
We were staying with my dads cousin who lives somewhere near Welshpool in the middle of the countryside. This is the view from there house which was beautiful in the evening. I seriously want to live somewhere like that when I grow up.

We visited Coed-y-Brenin waterfalls that had some lovely prayer flags tied across the river, it felt so peaceful here.

We went on several walks and a 12 mile bike ride around Lake Vyrnwy throughout the week which was probably the most exercise I've done in a while haha. One of the highlights had to be going on the Titan zip-wires in Snowdonia. I had filmed it with a GoPro which I may add in a later post as I currently don't have the footage, the views were amazing. I will definitely go on the longest zip-wire in Europe next time which can reach speeds of 100mph!!

~Week 2~
In the second week we travelled down to stay just outside of London where my dads partner lives with her kids. We went to the Harry Potter Tour which was amazing, I could spend all day looking at the little details they added to the films that you so rarely see as well as the technical drawings of the buildings and machines in the film.

I tried Butterbeer which I found out I'm not really a fan of, for those who have never tried it it's like an ice-cream soda but mega sweet!

We also visit Madame Tussaud whilst in London which had a crazy long queue. Here's me with ET & Mo Farah!

~Week 3~
I went to the Lake District with my mum & sisters for a couple of days and we walked around Blea Tarn and visited Aira Force. We'd been staying in a little wooden pod at Great Langdale campsite which was just a walk away from the tarn. The Lakes are always so beautiful even on the gloomiest days which is why it's my favourite holiday destination!

After coming back from the three week extravaganza I realized I have all of my homework & applications for Uni etc... to do in the last two weeks. I tell myself every time not to leave these things until last minute and I clearly never listen haha!
