Geekfest Road Trip 2015 The Last Leg

The last leg of our trip was to Snowdonia National Park.  I had planned this in as I REALLY wanted to try the longest zip slide in Europe (I have an obsession with being able to fly…..I’m not convinced that it won’t eventually be my super power).

So I was supposed to be doing this….


Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? I wouldn’t know because that’s not me…

Unfortunately, weather and bad timing meant that our feet were firmly kept on solid ground.  I was disappointed but that went away when I realised that we were essentially in every fantasy TV show/movie that I’d ever seen.  Lush forests, winding paths, stone structures at every turn.  This trip was about exploring and that’s what we did!

There's no filer on this (because I don't know how to work them).  It just looked THIS DARN PRETTY

Yeah, I pretended to be a Hobbit hiding from a Ring Wraith, so sue me!


The last stop on the way home was Liverpool.  I was completely off the book here, we hadn’t planned on stopping here but didn’t want to go home quite yet.  We checked into a cheap hotel and then when to explore the home of the Beatles.  No one ever told me that Liverpool is WINDY!  Not just a bit of wind, I’m talking ‘feel it in your nethers’ windy.

On our very last road-trippy day, before we set off, we found a Canadian coffee shop for breakfast and ended up sitting next to Alfie Allen AKA Theon Greyjoy/Reek from Game of Thrones.  I’m afraid I don’t have any photographic evidence of this but Husband was a witness.  It felt like the perfect way to end our 13 day geekfest road trip.


My Big Geek Adventure – Road Trips will be released later in the year.  In the meantime you can read about our previous adventures on any good Kindle!
