10th - 13th Sept 2010
We've spent our Eid at Wales, as mentioned before. So, here are some details and photos on our trip. It was a 4 days 3 nights trip. I enjoyed it a lot even it was pretty much raining the whole time. UK kan.
We stayed at The Old Station Caravan Park. We booked a 2 bedroom static caravan. It was my first time holidaying in a caravan, was pretty much nervous just in case the caravan was not that comfy. however, it turned out to be really nice.
The caravan that we had: Sheraton (nama dia)
The rooms were ok, but difficult to get a shot. so no photo, ok. First day, we arrived at the park was pretty late and it was raining. We went out to the Elan Valley Visitor Center which was about 20mins drive from the caravan park, but everything was already closed and we were a bit lazy to get out from the car (hujan!).
The next day, we went to Warren Wood and walked to the Water-Break-Its-Neck waterfall.
|It was a nice walk along the stream, with pebbles and all|
Then from there we went to Elan Valley Visitor Center again. It was raining again!!!!! pening acik camni. we gathered the infos needed the we set off. Elan Valley has 5 reservoirs in its area. So, lets check out if i still remember their names, hehe.
Oh, i found the map:
These reservoirs are to provide water to Birmingham. Quite far, they used underground canal, if am not mistaken to flow the water from Wales to Birm, England.
The first one is Caban Coch. we were standing at the viewpoint right beside the dam wall. This was my first time being so near to a dam. Thrilling yet scary pulak when thinking what if the wall pecah. so lets ignore the 'what if' for that time being so that i could enjoy the breath-taking scenery.

|ape la ye yang dua beranak ni intai ~|
|makcik ni rupenye, ntah tgh petik ape|
|loving this view|
|i want to see jugak..|
|This dam, we can walk on it.|
Lepas tu dah penat tgk dam, nak makan le. we found a picnic spot, just below the dam, which i feel like the best picnic spot i had so far. sgt tenang (or was it because imran was sleeping? hehehe).
|scenery like this always reminded me of enid blyton books, love them.|
Then we set off again to Dol-y-mynach. dont ask me how to pronounce, blm khatam welsh lagi.
The journey continues, next destination Pen y Garreg reservoir and Craig Goch. Tapi ada 1 photo je tinggal and i dont know which one is it. hentam je lah.
After a day seeing the reservoirs rase nak muntah jgk. asyik2 ni je. but actually the views around the valley were pretty nice, we drove around jalan kecik2 cenonet, sheeps we by the road side tgh bz makan. it was really peaceful, tapi kalau tgk gambar je, cant appreciate much i think. kena pegi baru rase suasana nye (and amik bau taik kambing ~ hehe).
The next day, we went to Beacon Brecon National park. The views were pretty much the same as the day before.
Ok, thats that. Sudah pening tgk screen computer lama2. maklumlah orang tak kerja, kan.
