Come and explore Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons in Summer!

 

Mean Llia, Brecon Beacons

Summer offers the visitor a wonderful opportunity to see Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons at their best. With the driest days and the warmest temperatures, Wales is a fantastic place to experience our long summer days. This is the busiest time of the year here, so make sure you go with an expert with the local knowledge to get you away from the crowds and into the hidden places. Whether you'd like to get active on two legs (or two wheels), or would prefer being driven around, Summer makes a wonderful time to be away from the crowded cities. Come and see us this season!

Things that Americans notice in England (and Wales!)

Around half my guests are Americans and one of the most fun things with US guests is to talk about what's different between our two countries. Trip Astute posted this excellent video on  www.youtube.com/ which include left-hand drive traffic (a major reason why guests prefer Rob to do the driving), plastic bank notes, enormous electrical plugs, interesting and tasty foods, gas / petrol stations, mobile payments, "military time" i.e. 24 hour clock, weird mixes e.g. tuna and corn sandwiches, accents & dialects, different words for the same things e.g. cookies or biscuits! There's always loads of ideas to swap and that's not even including the two top conversation topics - the "B word" here and the "T word" over there!

The Zeitz family from the USA at Capel-Y-Ffin in the Black Mountains

 

The Zeitz family, from Montana and California were over here for a family wedding in Herefordshire. With a few days to see the "Old Country" they used Rob as their personal guide to Herefordshire and the Wye Valley. They retraced the steps of some of the earliest "tourists", in the eighteenth century, when they travelled down the Wye Valley from Ross-on-Wye to the spectacular Tintern Abbey via England's allegedly best view - at Yat Rock. Next up was a tour of the western borderlands - the enigmatic Kilpeck church and the stunning Vale of Ewyas before descending from the high Gospel Pass to the bibliophile's paradise of Hay-on-Wye. Fibnally the family toured the Black & White Village trail on the NW of the county where, somewhat unexpectedly, Monkland cheese factory proved to be a highlight. The ancient half timbered villages of Eardisland, Pembridge, Weobley and Eardisley completed a lovely day out with new friends from across the pond.

The Lightman family

 

"Rob found a way to connect with each of us - finding activities to appeal to all ages and sharing with us every day an authentic experience in Wales. Pubs, hiking, canoeing, tea, festivals, historical sites, archeology, and more. Wales itself is a breath of fresh air in this busy world and a wonderful spot for vacation. Rob brings the experience to life. I've traveled the world and seen many amazing sites and big cities, but thanks to Rob one of my favorite places will always be the quiet beauty and charm of Mid Wales and the River Wye. I can't recommend Exploring Mid Wales more highly."
