Hello all! Sophie and I have made it to the beautiful village of Dinas Mawddwy, near the bustling metropolis of Machynlleth, Wales (don't worry, we have no idea how to pronounce these places either). We are being graciously hosted by my pal Anwen, her family, and friends on their sprawling farm in the middle of the Welsh countryside. Hopefully I'll have time to post some pictures later because it is absolutely gorgeous here, but we have a full day today as Anwen's village is having sort of a county fair today (their 100th!). There are food competitions (Anwen's family and friends have quite a few entries), dog competitions, and animal shows. But I am most excited for the sheep shearing competition; which may very well be the highlight of this trip!

Take care,


  1. Sounds like fun! I have some friends who went to Wales and just loved it! How long will you be there?

  2. Sounds like fun! Am excited to see the pics you take along the way!

  3. What is it with you and sheep? Ever since I met you in 3rd grade... sheep sheep sheep. Geez.

  4. sheep.... wow. i had to hear all about you eating that sheep dish too. so weird. haha ;) glad you're safe and having fun!!!
