Walking blind in the Brecon Beacons

If there’s one thing spring stands for it’s new beginnings in all forms. New life, fresh starts and, most importantly, new adventures.

Earlier this month we ventured out on a spring morning to the Brecon Beacons. Pen y Fan was our destination and our goal was to reach the top and see some stunning Welsh countryside.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Monday, enjoy your dog walking today, and may it be sunny (if cold!) with you as well!
