    Right... I have a reputation of being a workaholic :eek: So in a 'use it or lose it' kinda way I'm taking a week off at the end of August to do some random mad things :)

    Saturday

    Travelling from Portsmouth to:

    Stonehenge

    [​IMG]

    then driving to

    Glastonbury

    & going up the tor

    [​IMG]

    then travelling to Brecon & setting up camp :)

    Sunday

    Climbing Pen Y Fan (not climbed it since 1989)

    [​IMG]

    Monday

    Travelling to Ross on Wye

    [​IMG]

    This is IS a bit weird admitedly... I've discovered that my stepdad that I've not seen since 1979 still lives in the same house in Ross (15th century court house - the garden is end at the turret in the pic above)... & he's got remarried & the court house is now a guest house... I've booked in for a night to sleep in my old house... & mebbe my old bedroom. I've not told him who I am & won't unless he twigs who I am.

    I'm doing it really to revisit my old town, school & I absolutely loved the house & it's garden...

    Tuesday

    Travelling to Clun near the Welsh borders & camping nearby - again to revisit a village I used to live in (1980 was the last time I was there) & to check out my old school / places I used to play.

    Clun has an old Norman guard castle which was ace to muck about on as a kid - can't wait to see it again :)

    [​IMG]

    Wednesday

    Travelling to Cadair Idris, Snowdonia (not been here since 1987) & hiking up it & camping by the lake below

    [​IMG]

    Thursday

    Travelling to Barmouth on the Welsh coast & camping / chilling

    [​IMG]

    Friday / Sunday

    Travelling to Redditch to chill with friends back in my old home town.

    Sunday

    Travelling to London to go clubbing at a fund-raising night for a friend who tragically died recently & meet up with friends to dance the night away celebrating his life :)

    [​IMG]

    Bank Holiday Monday

    Travel back to Portsmouth & collapse :D


    I hope to stick to LT choc shakes / Celebrity Slim tommy soup during this but may get some Celebrity Slim bars in for the hiking days as I reckon I'll be using up LOADS of energy up & down the mountains :)

    Have a brill time, The British Isles have some truly beautiful places to visit, I know people go abroad mainly for the weather, but our country is so lush and green because of the rain. I'm also trying to preserve my skin, so not much chance of frying to a crisp here either!!!!

    I've got a week off too at end of August. Can't wait!! (even though in my own workaholic life i will be checking emails and working most days!!).

    I will start next weekend by heading south to spend 4/5 days with my mum. We will be planning a couple of days out, in the Berkshire area, we both quite like stately homes and there'll be village pubs/tea rooms to visit too i suspect.

    Then off to Leeds Festival. A week of polar opposites - but all done on LT ;)

    What a great week you have planned...all joking aside, you really are very positive and very fun!!!

    I had a week in Ross/Wye when I was around 19-20 and absolutely loved it. My friend came from there too....oh, it was beautiful...I think that was my first time down that neck of the wood!!

    Have a brill time and enjoy :)

    WOW!! I am so jealous! Any room in your suitcase (admittedly you'd need a pretty big suitcase lol)? You've certainly packed in the activities! Look at all those stunning pictures! What an immense week you'll have, fantastic!

    Will it be weird seeing your old step dad again? Why won't you introduce yourself? Or is that me being too nosey? I can't imagine going back to stay in a house that I used to live in without wanting to tell someone. But I'm sure it will be a brilliantly nostalgic and moving time for you nonetheless.
