Five guys, a free Saturday, what do we do? Go to the Brecon Beacons of course. And that’s exactly what we did one Saturday – got in a car and an hour later there we were.

The Brecon Beacons is one of the places you’ve got to go to when living in Wales. With the range of mountains to climb and even beautiful waterfalls to see, there are a lot of options for a fun day or even weekend out. We decided to go for the Pen y Fan climb that day; 886 metres of Welsh rocks. It is the highest mountain at the Brecon Beacon National Park. It wasn’t the easiest of walks but it was very exciting climbing up!


Getting to the top was even more exhilarating, it roughly took about 45 minutes to one hour to get up there but it is really worth it to see the views. Walking back down was even shorter. The view up at the top is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in my life. You can see a vast amount of wales and even England (if you’re lucky).

The journey back home in the car was the quietest we have ever been. We were all so tired we just chilled out as we blared Kanye West through the speakers.

It was an exhausting walk but a very enjoyable day out with the lads – it’s a place I will definitely be going back to soon.

Hopefully we will go on more trips throughout the year, which I will write about on this blog in the future, so stay tuned!
