About

Welcome to Short Walks & Long Paths!

Join us as we explore the beautiful Welsh coast, experiencing some of the world’s best beaches, clifftop tracks, wonderful landscapes, Celtic history and more on our series of ‘Short walks & long paths’.

We love to wander and discover new places along the way, not being too concerned with covering distances in the quickest time. Taking an opportunity to pause and enjoy a moment or a view is part of the great pleasure of coastal path walking.

In the wonderful words of Welsh poet and wanderer W.H.Davies,

“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?”

This blog will hopefully provide inspiration for readers to also get outdoors, step out on a trail and explore more. For others it may simply be an enjoyable read which will take you on a virtual walk with us.

So enjoy reading and if you’re inspired by our ramblings then perhaps we’ll see you on a ‘Short walk on a long path’ along the way.

Happy Wanderings!
