June 12, 2005
Well, well…. yesterday was our practice walk in preparation for the real thing next week. One mountain, one day, 15 people…
It was the first time I've been to Wales. What a beautiful country!!!! And the weather was awesome!!!!! Just as the weatherforecast predicted (and for the first time ever they were right!) it was sunny and hot without a hint of a cloud or rain. Obviously haven't expected that I completely burnt my arms and face and while walking was cursing myself for not taking shorts and bikini with me!
But my-oh-my what a beautiful place Snowdonia is!!!! The lakes, the mountains and although we had to run up and down (as we wanted to see how quickly we can manage it) i still managed to take a few pictures and have a look around!
The walk was not easy, i must admit. At times i was tempted to stop but determination and with moral support of my flatmate i continued up the mountain. And to everyone's surprise (including my own) we managed it in just 3 hours!
Well, next time it will be three mountains not just one so it will be harder! But i'll do my best!
