Wikipedia road trip definition:
“A road trip is a long distance journey on the road”
I wasn’t sure whether a weekend trip of driving for 4+ hours to North Wales and back would technically be classed as a ‘road trip’ and it certainly wasn’t on the same scale as the road trip Chris and I took across Europe from Calais to Prague and back in July 2016 or the road trip through Northern Argentina in November 2016.
However, on the basis I had given this challenge the title ‘Go on a UK weekend road trip’ and this was a weekend, on the road and within the UK, I decided this should therefore count!
The purpose of the weekend was to explore the gorgeous scenery on foot by means of a series of 3 separate hikes which I’ve covered separately in our travel blog.
I did a little bit of driving around Snowdonia but this was mostly driving to and from the starting point of each hike.
And on the way back, I had a night in a spa hotel in Llangollen, a small town near the English border.
