So my day to day life is most definitely a mess right now. All my things are between two places, hidden away in boxes while we try and empty everything out of our old apartment and into our new one.
I really can't wait to show you some pictures of the new place, but that'll be once I feel everything is in its place (for the time being). The new flat is so lush and I can't wait to add our own special touch to it.
Back at the current flat where I am now it's looking considerably emptier of furniture and possessions. The only things really remaining are the furniture that the landlord owns and my plants. I kind of like it.
I feel like my plants are symbolizing the state I'm finding myself in quite well, they're a bit all over the place, growing excitedly, some a bit confused and out of place, but generally happy (of course). 
It's weird to think that these pictures are the final few shots I'll taken within this apartment. 
I really can't believe how lucky we were to live in such an awesome place that has so much natural light and so much space.

But alas it is on to the next adventure!! 
P.S The weather lately has been so gorgeous and I've being massively appreciating every moment of it. That alongside with moving into the new apartment has been keeping me busy and I've found myself trying to keep up with all the reading due for Philosophy. But reading the works of Mill and Kant on my balcony in the sun has made it even more pleasurable.

I'll make sure to write again soon!

The beginning of a few warm days. I can tell because there isn't a cloud in the sky and the air has a hazy freshness to it that I breathe in as I walk to work. It's 5.30 in the morning and I find myself captivated by the city skyline and the dusty pink sky signalling the beginning of a new day - a better day. 
No one else is around to appreciate, just me and the chirping birds.

I've found myself with three days off just as my favourite weather has hit us. It's so warm I feel so incredibly at ease. Everything looks beautiful and green and growing and alive and I remember all the reasons I love the city I live in.

It seems odd that I am inside on a day where gorgeous blue sky is dazzling Cardiff. I'm promising myself I'll go out later once I get this post done because as much as I want to enjoy the benefits of a sunny afternoon I also really want to write this post and share with you some of the incredible views I got to experience while away this week. So I'm sat semi gazing out the window with pistachio nuts to my left and chilled water to my right and my toes warming up in the sun. I keep reminding myself that soon I'll be able to write my blog posts from a balcony and that makes me twitch with excitement. 

So shall I get to the post? 
The Tuesday just passed me and Tom left Cardiff early morning via bus and then train up North to a part of Wales we had not yet explored. I had decided to surprise Tom for his birthday and take him on a trip to Snowdonia with the plan to hike Snowdon (the highest mountain in both Wales and England) and then experience the worlds fastest zip wire. Below are a bunch of pictures from over the two days, I'll try keep them to a minimum but honestly the surroundings were just so breathtaking that I of course couldn't stop taking pictures! 

Enjoy!

We started our climb of Snowdon in the pouring rain and quickly realised we weren't in entirely the right gear. I blame myself because I hadn't really done all the research I should of regarding what we required and what the conditions were going to be like. On Wednesday it was due to rain in the morning and clear up in the afternoon, while at the summit of Snowdon it was snowing in the morning and not getting warmer than -1. Thankfully we had waterproofs and a few layers on, but on the first leg of the journey our jeans got soaked through completely. In the first hour we battled ice rain, wind and hail, we noticed people turning back but there was no way I was going to do that! We were mesmerized by the stunning lakes and the surrounding mountains and glimpses of blue sky as the clouds attempted to break up gave us hope.
Try spot the tiny people on the middle right!
As we came to the end of the lakes we spotted a couple ahead looking a bit confused as where to head, the path curved round the lakes but it stopped there. The only way seemed to be up amongst the rocks where segments of path could be seen further up. We spotted a few more people further up the mountain and so with some slight reassurance as that being the way to head, began our literal climb up the mountainside! 
There is something about this kind of hiking that I really love. Although at the time there is a slight risk factor, we were soaked through and were practically pulling ourselves up rocks with streams of water coming down all around us (oh and snow) the whole experience was incredible. The sense of challenge, adventure and achievement literally makes me so happy - its one of the main reasons I love travelling so much. This hike wasn't easy, it wasn't a walk in the park and that was something that definitely wasn't made clear to us online, it's just lucky for us both me and Tom love this kind of adventure! 
That's the peak! If you zoom in you can see people standing around. At first we didn't realise that was the peak and were shocked that people were up there. Little did we know that was where we were heading!!
Reaching the top of the mountain we entered the clouds and were met with seriously strong winds that were crazy freezing! We quickly followed the final path to the peak where there was a rock that I was able to cling onto for dear life.
It was really breathtaking being up there, especially as just as we made it up the clouds began to clear revealing the vast countryside surrounding Snowdon. 

We found some shelter from the wind behind a wall and before we made our way down had some coffee (which was such a good idea as it was so cold) and sandwiches. 
For our trek down we headed down the other side of the mountain along what was considered the easiest path - it was literally just a path all the way down the mountain, hilariously different to what we had just come up. It was amazing how quickly the clouds cleared literally as soon as we made it to the peak and suddenly it was a gorgeous sunny day and we had all the time in the world to make our way back down.
There is an option to get a train up for those less able to do the full walk.
The views as you can see were utterly phenomenal, I'm struggling to put into words how incredible the whole experience was. Because we were so high up we could see so amazingly far and all the mountains surrounding us looked so small in comparison. As we descended we gradually made our way through the valleys surrounding towards a nearby village that we could catch a bus home from.
The peak still visable!!
Then on the Thursday was our ride on the zipwire. It was so much fun if not slightly scary... But I think it convinced Tom that rollercoasters won't be so bad so that is a plus! Here are some pictures from the day and then I'll love you and leave you till the next post!
