It’s been windy and grey here in West Wales recently, but perfect weather to stay indoors to get some research and writing done – occasionally combined with a walk along the beautiful coastline where baby seals are dotted around the bays at the moment.
A small coastal village in Wales is a big contrast to the city life I was leading in Bath for a couple of months over the summer, but I love it here and it’s a priviledge to spend time here for the third straight year.
The base in Bath from July to September gave me a unique opportunity to get under the skin of yet another city, as well as opportunities to discover the surrounding region of Somerset. I took daytrips to places like Wells, Glastonbury and Cheddar – and of course to the neighbouring city of Bristol, that I’m starting to know very well. I also made it further afield to exciting destinations like The Isle of Man and Brighton that both resulted in travel articles that are yet to be published.
I recently had a couple of articles published with Jyske Fynske Medier though, from Cheddar and the Spanish region of Galicia.
Travelling west I got the chance to discover the town of Chepstow in Wales, and to revisit my beloved former home of Cardiff – and as I’m writing this I have a couple of weeks left here in Wales, before I cross the ocean for a quick visit to Dublin, then head back home to Denmark.
My plan is to “set up shop” back home, to have a more permanent base from where to travel and take on press trips. Therefore I am always looking for opportunities for work and projects within the travel/tourism field, and would love to hear from you if you could need a travel writer fuelled on pure passion?
Until next time
