Working in football, especially at The New Saints, where it is an eleven-month season, holidays have to be worked around games. In my case, as Wales is always my vacation destination anyway, at least it’s not such a big gap to bridge.
This week worked out well, with the club’s away fixture at Caernarfon Town during the week meaning I only had a round trip of 80 miles from Barmouth. I say ‘only’ because in Welsh football that’s not too bad and I certainly clock the miles during the course of a season.
With the game on the evening, I went a few hours earlier, parked at the ground and went for a walk around the town. My wife wasn’t bothered about watching the game so she stayed in the caravan while I exercised my tourist muscle.
I enjoyed my time in Caernarfon very much as I focused around the castle itself. The views across the Menai Strait to Anglesey are great as well. All in all a very enjoyable time, with footage and images via the video below.
