The 14 days of Valentine tribute to the love of couchsurfing continues.
DAY 5 – (IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE NEAR) BANGOR, WALES
CHILDREN: Son, Son, Son, Daughter, Son
When we left Arras, we took a sabbatical from couchsurfing. First, we stayed one night in a B&B in Calais waiting to drive through the Eurotunnel and another night in an impossible to find cottage in England. Then we spent 2 weeks on a narrowboat in England and Wales followed by 2 weeks in a lovely Welsh cottage on the salt marshes.
It wasn’t until the very end of May that we packed up and drove to Bangor. Again, I’m going to keep this brief because I have previously blogged about our two blissful days couchsurfing with this family. You can read about it here.
I will say though that there were four adults and 10 children living in that house (including us) and we had an absolute blast. Our Onlyboy was thrilled to be surrounded by teen boys and their Onlygirl was ecstatic to have some girly friends to play with. It may be a few years before we see each other again but I believe it will happen.
DIOLCH I CHI!!!
Geez, I almost posted this without any word about the hat!! Caught myself just in time. WelshSWMBO is a vivacious and hilarious woman who happens to love the colour green. Especially lime green. She’s blond and stylish so I knit her this hat on 8 mm needles/US 11 in Estelle “Drake” (70% wool, 30% acrylic). I hope she likes it!
