Adventures in the Wye Valley.
The last few weeks have been insanely busy; as it turns out buying and remodelling your first house can be quite stressful! Anyway that’s another story for another day. So, as a little treat my friend Billy booked a short trip away to the Wye Valley with an overnight stay in a lovely pub for us and four of our mates.
We canoed all day in the glorious sunshine and when I say ‘canoed’ I mean we tied them together and floated down the river stopping only when we crashed into things and then for a spot of lunch on a jetty. We started drinking early on; thankfully nobody drowned and in true British fashion we all got nice and sunburnt but it’s all part of the fun! After the canoeing part of the day, we walked back to the pub where we were staying and settled in for the night. After dinner the owner of the pub let us make a small bonfire and we spent the rest of the night drinking under the stars. After a solid 18 hours of drinking, we called it a night and hit the hay.
The next day we woke up, had breakfast and then wanted to get high…..up, that is, so we climbed to the top of Simmons Yat to take in our surroundings. It was so beautiful; I can’t believe it’s only an hour from Bristol.
Here are some photos from the trip.
