Darla and Kathy in Wales

September 15, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Kevin's mom and her friend visited us for just over a week.  They conquered castles, explored ancient burial grounds, tried new food and walked more than they bargained.

Places we explored:

  • Chepstow Castle
  • Caerphilly Castle
  • Tintern Abbey
  • Hereford Cathedral
  • Arthur's Stone
  • Cathay's Cemetary
  • Abbey Church of Saint Mary in Abbey Dore
  • Tinkinswood Burial Chamber
  • St. Lythans Burial Chamber
  • St Fagans Food Festival
  • Castle Coch
  • Barry Island

Fun Fact: We introduced Kevin's mom to the show Gavin and Stacey -- more as a joke, but to also give her an insight into the stereotypes of Wales.  She loved it so much she binged the entire thing before she arrived and then wanted to tour the film locations (Barry/Barry Island).  So one of the days we wandered down to Barry, so she could see the street and the house.  The lady that owns it still allows people to knock and tour whenever they want -- the show has been off the air for 10 years!

Overall we completely exhausted them, but also made them both want to come back :)
