On the second day we had the guide in Wales, we mostly pootled around Brecon Beacons National Park, which was very beautiful. Our guide was a bit of a petrolhead (for you USers: car nut) and we admitted to liking Top Gear.

At one point when driving, he noted that the stretch of road we were driving down was often used for filming segments of Top Gear when they were testing out cars. Naturally, I took a photo of it. Does it look familiar?

Oh wait - there's no way a regular view of TG would recognize it from that photo. Here, let me fix it for you:

Now that oughta do it!

In two weeks, we shall be in London! Woo! I know I said something earlier about not meeting anyone for lunch or whatever, but [ profile] myrialux says he's OK with that as long as whoever we meet is OK with him sitting in a corner not saying anything. So if you're in London from the 7th to the 10th* and want to get together for a lunch or dinner, let me know! We might not be able to work the times out, but hey.

Also: anything you think we should definitely see/do/buy in London, Tenby, Cardiff, or Brighton? We will be geeky dorks in Cardiff and go find the Ianto Jones shrine, provided it's still there, and probably be shameless tourists and do the Doctor Who Experience. We're only one night in Tenby, as we've hired a guide for the day who will pick us up there and go around bits of western Wales, including Carmarthen where I spent a semester, before depositing us in Cardiff.

Anyway, woo! (need to check a few more things off the list, including getting flu shots before going...)

* We're there from the 6th to the 11th, but on the 6th will be staggering around like drunks as we attempt to stay awake long enough to go to bed at the proper time for the UK, and thus not good company, and we're heading out to Wales on the 11th.
