Lord of the Rings times a million

That's about how I would sum up Wales. In fact, I stayed up last night watching The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers since since the B&B happened to have the DVD (reminded me of watching Braveheart in Scotland).

We had one final snafu on the way back when our train was massively overbooked and we ended up sitting out where the train cars connect, but it wasn't so bad.

In the end, I am really happy with this trip. All of the unplanned events gave me the first true "I'm having a travel experience" feeling I've had since Africa. At times, I think we're too good at planning. We're too efficient. We're too calculating. Every once in awhile, things should go wrong. It gives me the character of the place. I couldn't have asked for more.

...though some one is still going to get an earful on the phone tomorrow.

when things go wrong you're forced to realize that we aren't really in charge...
sometimes that stinks,
sometimes it's nice to realize not everything has to be perfect...
glad to hear you got back okay!
