Trip Report - Welshpool - re-revisited

Pictures are here

Saturday morning and I decided to go on a day trip to tidy up some loose ends. I reckoned I could fit a few things into one journey and then get back in time for tea. The plan was:

  • Go to Aberystwyth for a personal visit
  • Go to Machynlleth to take a picture of the Map
  • Go to Dolgellau to get the GPS coords of the ex-NMB

So, set off in the milk-mobile on my own. Stopped off and bought a Guardian, which came with a free CD. The free CD turned out to be pretty good and became the soundtrack for the journey. (Best moment on CD is the lyric “Keepin it real, we’re ready to rock” from track 7 - genius.)

It was tipping it down, but, as if to prove the rule, just as I passed into Wales, the rain abated and the sun shone weakly. This set the tone for the rest of the trip; mostly fine and cloudy, patches of rain. Well done Wales - England was getting a soaking.

By the time I was passing Welshpool it was time for a little smackerel of something: NMB visited; Tea and ‘Supreme Burger’ ordered and consumed; Belly filled; Job done.

This time I parked in the Pay and Display car park by the Tourist Information Centre. I forgot to pay (or display) and I guess my luck must be a-changin’ because I didn’t get a ticket. Yippee.

Onwards with the quest …

      Well well, track 7 is by Leamington Spa’s very own Toby Marks - Banco de Gaia. He may have moved of course…

      The CD is, however, a travesty, since it contains both Chime and Belfast by Orbital, yet they do not segue into each other as nature dictates they must.

      It sure is. Back in my PA days, Toby rented a unit next door. He gave me a copy of ‘Last train to Lhasa’ which I would also recommend. Top chap. Don’t think he’s still at Holly Farm though.

      You could always put it on shuffle play and get them to segue every now and then :-) )
