Pembrokeshire Coast Path Walk – Take 2

Well after having had to cancel this walk in South West Wales last summer because I injured my foot, it’s now well & truly on again for this August.  My friend Caroline & I have decided to miss out some of the southern section (including the rather industrial bits round Pembroke), & just to walk a rather spectacular 110 mile stretch of the total 186 miles.

We’ll be walking around 10 miles each day for 11 days – walking for 5 days, & then having a rest day in the St David’s area, then walking for another 6 days.

We’ve booked with a company called The Walking Holiday Company (www.thewalkingholidaycompany.co.uk).  They seem really good, & they’ve booked our accommodation along the route, plus they will transport our bags from place to place – so all we’ll need to carry with us is a small day pack, with a packed lunch, camera & waterproofs in it.

It would be lovely if you fancied joining us for the walk – whether that’s joining us for one day’s walk, a few days or the lot.

It really is the most spectacular countryside, & I can’t think of many more gorgeous things in life than spending time with good friends surrounded by stunning scenery – & getting some exercise at the same time!  How cool is that!

Anyway, in case you’re tempted, here’s our programme so you can see where we’ll be, & how far we’re planning to walk each day…

Pembrokeshire Coast Path party grows

Great, eight friends so far have said they’d like to join Caroline & I for some of the walk next summer (2011)…for anything from a day or two, to a 10 day stretch.  So this trip is getting better by the minute, & will be fantastic.

Those who said they’d like to join so far are…

1. JANE, one of my sisters-in-law who lives near Wetherby in Yorkshire

2. KALPANA – a very old friend (& Kraft client) from Dubai

3. DIANA – a friend from Dubai, who now lives in the south of France

4. JAN – one of my oldest friends from university days, who lives in Reigate in Surrey

5. PETRINA – a friend from Dubai, who now lives in England, & moves between 3 houses in Surrey, London & Cornwall

6. MAGGIE – a friend (& ex-BP client) from Dubai, who now lives in Shrewesbury in Shropshire

7. SALLY – a friend from Dubai, & we’ve just done the Gulf for Good challenge in Lebanon together

8. P (short for Patricia) – a friend from Dubai, who works for Gulf for Good, & as she comes from Cardiff in South Wales, & will be there next summer, she’d like to join in for some of the walk.

Plus CAROLINE & I of course…& SIAN & Caroline’s daughter HANNAH for odd days.

I’m the only person who knows everyone,  but take it from me, you’ll all get on marvellously, & we’ll have a great time.

All for now,

Tricia’s Pembrokeshire Coast Path Adventure

Hi, my latest adventure is that I’m planning to walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in South West Wales (all 180 miles of it) with a friend in August 2011.

I’ve set up a blog all about it, so if you fancy joining us for some or all of the trek, or if you’re just curious, then have a read of it.

Tricia’s Pembrokshire Coast Path Adventure

Posted by: triciaevans | June 3, 2010

Home

Hi everyone,

I’ve been talking about walking the Pembrokeshire coast path in South West Wales for years, & I’ve finally decided to do it!

Sian & I walked little bits of it last summer with two friends of ours, Caroline & her daughter Hannah, & I’d forgotten quite how lovely that whole area is, & how stunning & easily accessible the coast path is.

Anyway, Caroline & I got chatting, & we decided that we fancied walking the whole route…all 180 miles of it. I’ll be busy getting my new villa in Thailand organised & ready to rent this summer, so we’re planning ahead & have decided to do the walk in August 2011.

And so it begins...

It’s a long trek, so we’ve decided to be civilised & do it at a fairly leisurely pace. That means taking nearly 3 weeks to walk it, which includes taking plenty of time off to sightsee, relax & explore some of the lovely pubs & restaurants in that area, & staying at nice little Bed & Breakfast places along the way.

Looks easy doesn't it?

I’ve set up this blog to record everything about the adventure…before, during & after. It’s for family & friends to see what we’re up to, ideas for anyone doing treks elsewhere, & maybe a bit of inspiration for anyone who fancies joining in.

It’d be great if you fancied joining us, either to walk the whole route, or to join us for some stretches of it. The route & where we’ll be staying will be clearly marked up in due course.

All for now,
Tricia x
