Day #8: Camarthen to Builth Wells

Day #8: Camarthen to Builth Wells

High in the Brecon Hills…

What a day…

The pictures speak for themselves. But the roads I chose, not those that Google suggested had virtually NO traffic on them. Just hills, nature and wildlife.

Camarthen proved to be a fun place. No doubt I’ll go there again.

Staying in Camarthen

Breakfast was at a local pub, as the establishment I was staying in didn’t have the facilities. It was kind of above a venue set of 10-12 private rooms.

We got access to the rooms using an app. When I wanted to get in the door, either the front door or my room door, I’d fire the app up, and press my phone against the pad.

Worked kind of well.

The accommodation was alright. Could have had better toiletries, I don’t carry any of that around with me, but otherwise alright.

Had a croissant and honey and jam and a bacon and egg sandwich and coffee.

Fairly light, but lots of energy. Set me up until lunch.

…”and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.” – George Jung

Open roads, undulating hills. Brecon Beacons. 0 Traffic for hours on end. Bright with sights, smells and wildlife.
