“ We spent two wonderful days in August hiking with Rob. Weaving along midWales magnificent shore line as we hiked  beaches, woods, and lovely berry-lined paths for the occasional foraging; with the constantcy of the bright blue Irish Sea as a gorgeous backdrop. With Rob’s impressive knowledge of nature and British/Welsh history our hikes were always filled with lively and intelligent conversation. We felt as though we had just taken two courses “
