Travel timehop #4

Welcome to my weekly Travel Timehop where I invite you to take a look between the dusty pages of our holiday photo album.

Mr Tin Box and I have been going on adventures much longer than I’ve been blogging so this is a chance for me to share some stand out moments from our travels during the past 10 years.


This week I’m sharing a snapshot from a trip to North Wales.


When are we time-hopping to?

We’re heading back to 2009, when we decided to pack our tent and camping supplies in the back of our tiny Suzuki Swift and holiday in the UK.

Where in the world?

We were staying at a campsite called The Willows Abersoch, just outside the small village of Mynytho on the Lleyn Peninsular. Our aim was to get in a bit of walking ahead of a trek up Mount Snowden the following week.

The site was about the only one I found in the area whose name I could pronounce – I think that’s the main reason I booked it. It was a great little site though, with all the basic facilities we needed.

Having taken a little look at its website while writing this post I can see that they’ve made a lot of improvements, including a new toilet and shower block with free hot water. I’m pretty sure we had to pop money in a meter for hot showers when we were there, so you can thank us for funding that if you ever visit!


Timehop moment

As soon as we had pitched our four-man tent – we’ve never travelled light – we took a hike up the nearest hill to stretch our travel weary legs and check out the view. Mr TB had a new camera so we decided to try out the timer and get a photo of us both in front of the remains of an old building.

We took a few shots like the one above before finally getting a good, yet slightly less interesting picture.
