Signing up for an active holiday in Wales doesn’t mean just a bit of fresh air. It means scaring the beejeesus out of yourself and getting soaked in the process. Gorge walking pushed me to the limits. In fact, it pushed me over the limit. It pushed me over the rocks into a waterfall.
Let me just say, this would be a lot more fun in the summer. Yet when all is said and done, what a crazy exciting experience. The Afon-Meltta River in South Wales is home to this gorge walking expedition, which doesn’t involve walking so much as tossing, wading, swimming, sliding and jumping. The company Call of the Wild does a good job of not making you feel stupid and laughable, and the staff manages to be kindly and encouraging, (though they must secretly be thinking we – at least I – were stupid and laughable. And in the end … success and achievement.
Until they told us we’d only done half of it. A longer 3 km trek goes from May on. Whatever. Half a success is better than none at all.
