S is for...

Segovia, Castilla-Leon, Spain

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

We discovered the lovely city of Segovia during our journey through Spain following in the footsteps of the author Laurie Lee (As I walked out one Midsummer Morning). Dominated by a magnificent Roman aqueduct which spans the entrance to the Old Quarter it is a beautiful place with wonderful old honey-coloured buildings, statues and a stunning cathedral. From the cathedral narrow cobbled streets lead to the Alcazar (palace) which is a glorious blend of east and west with soft coloured stone turrets and round grey tiled towers.

 

T is for ...

Torla, Spanish Pyrenees

General 2

The village of Torla in the Spanish Pyrenees is known as the gateway to the Valle de Ordesa, for it is from here that visitors take the shuttle-bus into the spectacular Parque Nacional de Ordesa y Monte Perdido. Established as a reserve in 1918 the park now covers 156 square kilometres of peaks, valleys and waterfalls. It is a fantastic place for walking and climbing or simply to enjoy the wildlife; golden eagles, Egyptian vultures and much more.

U is for...

Under Milk Wood, New Quay, Pembrokeshire

General 3

Dylan Thomas is said to have based his famous radio play Under Milk Wood on the goings-on in the village of New Quay in Pembrokeshire. Don and I wanted to see the setting for the story, but our visit to the village also marked the end of our journey following the magnificent Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Running a full 186 miles from Amroth in the south to St Dogmaels in the north, the path offers excellent walking with spectacular sea views and the opportunity to explore places such as Solva, St Davids with its lovely cathedral and the wild and beautiful Strumble Head.
