Not even bloody awful Welsh weather was enough to dent our determination to enjoy a summer holiday and so today after recouping for a day we boldly ventured forth to our base of operations... Southampton! We kind of lucked out with the Airbnb and are staying right next to the harbour literally within throwing distance... Continue Reading →
