Wales is a fairly compact country, but it’s home to some outstanding scenery. Here are some of the best drives to take during your trip.
The first option is a jaunt along the River Wye, which marks the border between England and Wales. Start at 11th-century Chepstow Castle, and then visit Tintern Abbey, a set of 12th-century monastic ruins, before following the river along to Hay-on-Wye.
The Brecon Beacons are a famous spot for outdoor adventures, but you can also appreciate them from your car. The Abergavenny-Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen route takes you through some spectacular scenery, and even includes the Black Mountain Pass, one of the most famous drives in the United Kingdom.
If you want to look at the sea, try the Pembrokeshire coast for some beach-hopping between Tenby and St Davids. You’ll get to see resort towns like Tenby and idyllic beaches such as Barafundle Bay. Make sure you stick around for sunset over the water.
Some may sniff at a road trip that covers just 20 miles, but the Abergeswyn Pass is an intense experience. Deep in the Cambrian Mountains, this old sheep track is steep and winding, demanding of both driver and car. Make sure you are prepared.
The babymoon trend is adding to the number of women traveling while pregnant. Expecting moms often need special items to take on the road. If you plan to travel while pregnant, you may want to consider adding these products to your suitcase.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
