Photo Diary: Turning 28 on top of the Snowdon

Do the things and make the stuff that make your soul say FUCK yeah!

And so I did… Every year for my birthday I aim to do something rad, something I love and with people I like. And this year was no different.  

Massive thank you to Jen , Ems and Charlotte for being in my life and spending my 28th birthday doing what we love – adventuring, trail running and doing cool stuff.  Running up and down Snowdon, drinking champaign on the top and getting dirty on the MTB bikes was totally epic.

Our whole radness weekend in Snowdonia came out to be very cheap – £40 per head for travel and accommodation. Of course we ended up spending more on food and drinks!

We booked a very cool camping pod which looked over the Cardigan Bay coast and sitting beneath the beautiful Cambrian Mountains.  The Cwt Hendre was a 5 minute walk to the beach, shop, train station and a pub!
