To say we’ve had somewhat of a rocky transition back into normal life in the UK after our three months travelling would be a serious understatement. Visits to various doctors and hospitals (four in total!) have been the order of the day (and completely unrelated to our travels). With so many medical problems going on … More The Welsh Three Peaks: when it’s all going wrong around you, go climb a mountain or three!
