Aberystwyth Bucket List

28 Apr

Last week I realised that I’ve only got eight working weeks left before we start packing up to leave Aber. We’re not quite sure when we’ll be moving to the big city yet, but we won’t really be around in Wales much during our summer of fun, so these are really our last chances to make the most of living here.

With that in mind Josh and I have been compiling a list of things that we want to do before we leave Aber. Some are things that we haven’t done before and some are things we love and want to do again.

We’ve laid down the challenge to ourselves to achieve each one of these things before we move, and to blog about them too…

Josh and Rachel’s Aberystwyth Bucket List

1. Watch the sun rise from Pendinas {the hill above the town}
2. See the submerged forest in Borth
3. Visit Soar y Mynydd
4. Buy a love spoon
5. Walk from Llanfair Clydogau to Tregaron
6. Have a bonfire and BBQ on the beach
7. Have a meal at the Harbour Master
8. Go dancing with all the gang
9. Visit Strata Florida
10. See Aberystwyth from the sea

We’ve actually already achieved one of these things today…so stay tuned for a post about that tomorrow.

In other news – I’m on a winning roll! I won a photo competition over at Little Somethings today. Horray!

Hope you’re having a great Thursday people. Are you celebrating the Royal Wedding tomorrow?

    I’ll see the Royal Wedding at my parent’s. My mom has already said it’s a must.
    So… I’ll see the wedding.
    I’m so glad for you!!! 😀

    Congrats again on the win. I love the photo!
    One thing I am SO glad I did while I was in Aber. was buy a love spoon. Now, it’s packed away in a box somewhere, because I have only halfheartedly decorated my home, but I absolutely love it. I bought it before I met my husband. I need to get a new one now that I’m married, right? 🙂 I see a trip in my future! (my WAAAAAAAAAAY far away future that is) I can’t wait to read all about your bucket list adventures. I hope you get to do them all!

    Bucket lists are a very good idea 🙂

    I hope you get to do all yours before you head to Cardiff!!

    I did watch the Royal wedding and it was amazing! Great to see marriage being celebrated! Lovely to see two people in love! I even had cakes with “K” & “W” and bunting done in icing… coz I’m that cool!
