Camping In Wales 3

Standard

While we were camping in Wales, we visited a nature reserve and climbed the mountain Cadair Idris. It took us around 4 hours to climb up and down it.

We saw many waterfalls and I was able to touch two of them! After the exhausting climb, me and my sister each had a bacon sandwich. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. I hope you will try to climb this mountain sometime too!

Another part of Wales I visited was Snowdonia, the area of land where Mount Snowdon lies. On the way to the mountain, we stopped at a little carpark where we saw some really cute birds.

I spent almost an hour admiring these feathered friends before we set off for Mount Snowdon again. I’ve really enjoyed camping in Wales and so if you ever go, I hope you have fun!

Camping in Wales 1

Standard

This week I have been camping in Barmouth, Wales which is near the sea. I’ve climbed a mountain and explored lots of north Wales. I’ve had an amazing time. My campsite was only a few minutes walk from the beach and so I spent a lot of time playing there.Me and my sister built many sandcastles and once we found a small crab in one of them!

PGL

Standard

This past week I have been at PGL at Marchants Hill. It was another amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. On our first day, we did raft building, team games and challenge course. My favourite activity was the Power Fan which I did on Thursday. During this activity, you had to climb to the top of a 13 metre pole and jump off of the top. You would free-fall and then slow down before you reach the ground. It is a truly thrilling experience and I recommend it to all people looking for scarily exciting activities. The scariest activity is definitely the Giant Swing. As you can guess from the name, you are attached to a giant swing and pulled up by your group. Then you pull the thin cord next to you and you plummet down before swinging back up. For those of you who like motorsports, Quad biking is the activity for you. you take it in turns to race your friends around a track. The track is surrounded by tyres so you won’t hurt yourself if you crash.

I have had such an amazing time at PGL and I would like to thank the PGL staff for my amazing holiday. I would recommend this centre for anyone looking for an exciting twist to their holidays.
