I started writing this blog this afternoon and jumped right in with a ‘Following today’s Welsh gov announcement, here’s my top…’ and then I stopped myself because HELLO! I’m writing a blog?! It’s been absolutely ages since I wrote something here! Between taking a break, closing the shop, running other businesses and generally just trying to keep my shit together I just haven’t been feeling very inspired but the news today that we can travel (safely & sensibly) within Wales once we come out of our firebreaker has pepped me right up!
I managed a few days up north to see family and friends after the first lockdown, (there’s something about that Snowdonia air that just properly sorts your head out) and now I’m itching for another night away somewhere.
I dunno about you but sharing a bottle of red wine next to a fire and switching for a couple of days sounds like absolutely bliss right now.
I just opened my Airbnb app and thought, why don’t I share some of my saved places, in case anyone else is thinking the same… so… following today’s Welsh gov announcement, here’s my top 16 Airbnb picks across Wales.
