This weekend past I was fortunate enough to join one of my best friends on her hen weekend. 9 of us met at London Paddington and boarded a train bound for Bridgend, in order to stay in a Tipi in the Welsh countryside for the evening.
To say that camping isn’t my thing is an understatement. Before this I had been once before (and by camping I mean a tent, not a Haven holiday in a caravan) and that was a horrific experience of wet muddy clothing and freezing cold nights in sleeping bags. Understandably then, I was apprehensive about this trip.
However, we were lucky with the weather when we arrived in Ogmore and we were greeted by the sunshine beaming through the amazing ruins of Ogmore Castle flanked by our tipi.
However, the weather was not kind to us all weekend and we all braved it in the tipi throughout the rain. Some even braved it outside the tipi in the middle of the night to courageously retrieve the tipi door, but that’s a story for another day! However, to the brave tipi door rescuer, I hope you enjoyed your hen weekend and I can’t wait to be part of your wedding.
I will leave you with photographic evidence that the girls from the city were willing and able to take on all that the country could throw at them this weekend.
