Wales and the hidden waterfalls
In our last adventure, Bessie the bus, our lovable Volkswagen LT 28, took us on a four days trip around the south of Wales for our Easter’s bank holidays. On the haunt of wild magical landscapes , enigmatic waterfalls and beautiful walks that unfolds the secret chasms of Tolkien – style profusion.
Our guide was Daniel Start’s book ” Wild Swimming” , we started with a 14 km walk around ” Waterfall Woods ” , an impressive network of forest lidos and falling water. Here you can walk and feel how the nerves of your brain are getting the stimulation of the forest.
We were lucky enough to get the first beams of sunshine and hit from the commence of spring, to be able to have a splash in one of the waterfalls.
Our next stop , following the route of this map was Llyn y Fan Fawr. A tight rocky canyon on the River Irfon , the journey to this hills felt epic and the aesthetics of these buildings blended in harmony with the grandiosity of the mountain . The way how nature erodes human made creations seems to have a meaning, to follow a path, to implore us to understand that there is no highest form of truth and beauty.
By walking this hills we realised how beautiful nature is and how much we would like to grasp every second and make it eternal, along the hill, it felt like we are walking in a different planet.
After walking the hill for one hour, this view was the reward.
