When I was younger we used to always go stay on a farm in Aberdaron in Wales. We went most years and I have the best memories from it. My Nan and Grandad used to come as well and sometimes other family members would come to visit while we were there too.
Aberdaron is only a small village surrounded by the most idyllic beaches. There is a similar vibe to Devon with the beaches being quite similar. We used to enjoy exploring the nearby towns and chilling on the beach followed by an evening BBQ.
None of my family had been there for quite a few years but we all have so many great memories. Not so long ago I was staying about an hour away and I decided to go and revisit to see if it was how I remembered it or to see if it had changed. As we started to get closer everything just felt more and more familiar. We arrived in the village and it was really surreal because all of these memories were coming back to me. The village is exactly the same as it was back all of those years ago.
I walked along the beach and I fell back in love with this place and I really would like to go back this summer and take my family with me. I sent them a picture asking them to guess where I was and the instantly knew because I had the picture taken on a wall that we always sat on in the village. My nan even has a painting of the town in her house.
Aberdaron will always be a special place for my family and I and I do hope we continue to visit there in the future.
