I can’t honestly say that I have done as much travelling as I would have liked to have done but I have done quite a bit. My idea has never been to travel around the world and see as many countries as possible, but more to travel around to different places where I haven’t been before and hang about their and try and get into it. For this reason there were quite a few places that are probably a bit odd but I really love.
When I was young from the age of 19 to 22 I lived in mid Wales near Aberystwyth. I wasn’t actually a student at the time but I did hang around with a lot of others who were students and this was when I really got into playing music and playing in a band.
In the year 2000 my girlfriend and I went on holiday to California. Whilst they decide to travel around a bit of one of our destinations was Las Vegas. I’m not quite sure whether it was a crazy idea, or a good idea or just the fact that we were drunk but we decided to get married in Las Vegas. This was completely unplanned and many of friends were very surprised when we came back married.
In the summer of 2002 by wife and I travelled around in a caravan in the South of France and on the east coast of Spain. There was one place in particular for Vinaros where we meant to stay for one night and ended up staying for eight weeks. Vinaros is just in the province of Valencia and is the first major town you come across when you leave Catalonia travelling down the east coast of Spain.
We have two daughters now who are at school so travelling isn’t quite so easy but we do intend to do a lot more travelling in the next decade or so. My wife and I really do enjoy places that are rich in culture and have beautiful weather. We are as fond of the sea as we are mountains, more so probably – so maybe our next move might be to somewhere near the sea, who knows?
