Where Next?


None of the trips I’d hoped for back in January are going to happen.

I’ve written off any foreign travel this year, and definitely no big trip – even if we’re vaccinated I can’t imagine Nepal will be, and the prospect of sitting in an aeroplane for 7-10 hours with a transfer in India or Dubai does not appeal. With Europe heading into its Third Wave and post-BREXIT relations already soured, Italy and Spain are highly unlikely. That said, I’ll be happy if we get to the autumn and I’m proved wrong.

Plus we’ve really not explored around here yet, and I really want to see family and friends – right now the prospect of being able to spend a long weekend in Pembs with the Everest Trek Crowd at the end of May is a huge highlight.

Trip No. 1 of 2021: Pembrokeshire

Destination: Pembrokeshire, in Far West Wales

When: May 2021

What: A few days with Hazel and Steffi with walks along the coast and our second attempt at an Everest Trek Get Together No 16 (our first attempt was last October, stymied by Storm Alex and COVID) 

How: Driving there and back, probably taking the scenic A40 north of the Brecon Beacons

Why: For fresh air and friends.

And that’s it so far.
