#AdventureCalling – Outdoor Linky 66

Hiya, and welcome back to #AdventureCalling. What is everyone up to this wet and windy half term? The boy was off last week, and for something a bit different, we spent a few days in London, exploring the museums, the Tower of London and seeing the sights. I even coped with the London Underground – this is what I was most nervous about. We had a fantastic time!

 

Every other Wednesday, me and Lauren from the Helpful Hiker would love to hear what you have been up to in the great outdoors – your big expeditions, mini adventures, days out, hints and tips. We love old posts and new posts too. If it’s outside, we want to read it.

I’ve found a lot of inspiration for things to do or places to visit from the #AdventureCalling linky so hopefully there will be something for you too. It is also a good way of reaching new readers and supporting other outdoor bloggers. Each week, Lauren and I will read and comment on every post, and we will each pick a favourite. Last time, Lauren’s favourite post was from The Hungry MountaineerHolcomb Creek and the Beavers. It was a really lovely post about being out in nature with friends. My favourite was The Fish with a Wish from Next Best Thing to Mummy. I love the ideas of books getting the message of looking after our planet across to children.
Below are some notes on how #AdventureCalling works. Hopefully everything is working, but do please give me a shout if there are any problems. Feel free to tweet me your posts should you have any difficulties adding them to the link up but don’t forget to pop back to read each other’s posts.

#AdventureCalling – Outdoor Linky 64

We’re back with #AdventureCalling.  What has everyone been up to for the last two weeks?  Father Christmas did indeed manage to find some microspikes in tiny feet size, and I was very excited but unfortunately, a pretty painful back scuppered any plans for big walks.  Things a looking better now, and we have a winter tree walk – learning about tree identification – to look forward to.

Llyn y Parc – Lost in the Woods

The bustling village of Betws y Coed is surrounded by forests, so during a visit to North Wales, we decided we would explore them with the aim of reaching Llyn y Parc in the Gwydir Forest.  We left the car at the Pont-y-Pair car park (LL26 0LS) and after the usual faffing around, turned right out of the car park.  A quick stroll led us to a road on the right, at the bottom of which, the forest awaited.  As we made our way into the trees, we found ourselves on a wide track bounded by pines.
