Cardiff Sea Safaris

This company let us down badly and then we assume complained to Trip Advisor when we gave them a one star review and because we are a business Trip Advisor took the review down for fear that Wales Outdoors, a walking business, is a competitor of Cardiff Sea Safaris, a boat hire company. So, we thought we’d blog the details instead.

New Year New Me!

Our very first walk of 2020 was led by Melitsa and was her New Year new Me Wye Valley Walk. This very popular walk starts near Goodrich and takes in the highlights of the area, King Arthur’s Cave, Symonds Yat, Biblin’s Wibbly Wobbly Bridge…

Google

Like the other monster business’ that dominate our lives, google, it is plain to see, has no care for or empathy with their clients. And their clients are us. Once we truly understand that the likes of fb and google and twitter are cash making machines then we are able to step back a little and wonder at the power that these entities wield.

Greyhounds!

Mali was adopted back in late November and is settling in well, learning our routines, creating new routines all of her own and being there to provide unconditional love and a very good excuse to take lots of exercise… man is she better behaved after having had a walk 🙂

The National Trust

I have a beef with the National Trust. Several in fact. And so I never pay for parking at their locations and I am not a member, and I never will be. I don’t think, but don’t quote me on it, that their charging is enforceable and to date I have not received a parking fine notification.

Two Wheels To Chamonix

Well, we asked for adventure writing and this is certainly it! One of our members, Ali Mahoney, decided, with little experience, to cycle from Pontypridd to Chamonix. We recommend getting hold of a copy of our very own ‘Cheryl Strayed’s’ self published book ‘Two wheels to Chamonix – 767 miles of blood sweat and gears’

Festive Waterfalls

While Andy was away in Germany’s Bavarian Alps – photos to follow – David picked up the baton and ran with our seasonal, midway between Christmas and New Years, Eight Waterfalls Walk, something we’ve delivered now for a fair few years. David had in support his brother, Steve and our regular assistant for the waterfalls Isobel.
