Our cult TV tour of Wales

August 16, 2011 Joanne Mallon 7

A walking holiday in Wales is a marvellous thing – the mountains, the lush, green landscape and the sheep are the perfect antidote to home life enslaved by the goggle box.

Unless, of course, you combine the two, as we did last week, and base your Welsh holiday around TV shows you like. 

First stop was Portmeirion, location for the Sixties classic The Prisoner. Be seeing you!

It's just like Disneyland squeaked The Offspring. That's right kids – a Disneyland you can never leave. Though the hotel is pretty dandy, so you might not want to.

A warning about Playmobil Fun Park Malta

My review of the Playmobil Fun Park in Malta for Have a Lovely Time accidentally caused a bit of a kerfuffle. A Facebook commenter living on Malta disagreed with my recommendation of the fun park as a place to visit. In fact she said she'd put it "below eating sand" on a list of things to do on the island.

Well, each to their own. Personally, I loved it. Look, I met a real pirate.

The Easyjet website has now made my review one of their travel picks of the month, proving once and for all that I am RIGHT and you, sand-eating person are wrong. Or at least, we have different opinions, both of which we are fully entitled to. And somebody else on the internet probably disagrees with both of us.
