After four weeks back at uni, being bombarded with dissertations and assignments and information about applying for jobs and all sorts of other Very Important and Scary Things, we went for a weekend away. And oh, was it needed.
I’d bought S a trip to ZipWorld Caverns for his birthday back in May, and we finally went last weekend. There are no pictures to show, unfortunately, as you’d be foolish to take a camera or a phone down there as if you dropped it you would never see it again, so you’ll have to take my word that it was great. After a small training session, the course consisted of 9 zip wires in caverns an old slate mine, with logs, chains and foot holds to get between the wires. After the wires are a series of bridges, climbs and tunnels. We spent a couple of hours there and it really was fantastic!
After ZipWorld we went for a jaunt up Snowdon. By this time we were starting to get short on light (and energy!) so we just went up a short stretch, but it was far enough to get a beautiful view out towards the sea.
