My Trip down to South Wales

Hey, Jay here, finally sitting down and writing for the big mike blog. I didn’t really know what the subject of my first article should be, but I’m determined to fill up this blog with some insightful and humorous content so I though I’d tell you about my trip down to Wales, that I went on last week.

It was a hiking weekend away that I reluctantly agreed to go on with my sister. She loves those sort of things, getting out in the great outdoors, getting your hands dirty and your knees up. I just like getting out of the house, so this was quite a good thing the both of us could do together. Besides, I hadn’t seen her in a while and we both agreed it would be a good chance for us to catch up.

We decided to rendezvous in London as that’s where she lives, and then travel from their to Cardiff, and then from there to brecon beacons, where the trip was being held. It was run by a group of professionals from London that do these hiking trips on the weekend for fun. Everyone was arranged to stay at a hostel just at the foot of the beacons, and there was about thirty people there if I remember correctly. Overall I really enjoyed the weekend. There were fun things that had been organised for the evenings entertainment.

We had a barbecue and played some drinking games or though I didn’t indulge myself too much, as I knew it would be an early start the next morning, climbing the biggest hill in Wales! In full, I generally had a really good time. The only downside was travelling back home afterwards. There were really bad delays with our trains, and we basically had to stop off in Bristol for the night. Luckily we found a place in Bristol to rent a room. If not, it would have been tough! We got back home fine the next day. All’s well that ends well I guess!

Fanfare: Big Mike Enters

Hello there. This is my new blog called Big Mike Blog. Although it’s quite confusing, my name isn’t actually Big Mike – it’s Jay. I’m just using this domain as I liked the sound of it.

Anyway, the point of this blog is to give me a space to write down my everyday thoughts and feelings. I honestly don’t know the direction that It will move into yet. All I know is that I’ll try my best to make it as entertaining and readable as possible. All I can do is hope you like it. Come back soon for more.
