Well, Tatjiana, I didn’t mean to criticize your choices or say there was something wrong with it - if that’s the impression I gave you (I hope not, and if so, that wasn’t my intention)
I mean, if I were interested, say, in a Music Festival taking place in August, I’d just get what I can get!
Or quite a lot of other things may get in the way, or each person may have different needs or priorities.
I just meant - for you or any reader who might have tried to plan a trip in the past but didn’t manage to find a solution - that in different years or even different moments of the year, opportunities may be different (like you saw, Flixbus which wasn’t there, as you say, just to name one).
And of course I was tempted to tempt you to go back - I always sympathize with fellow continental European learners.
In any case, I think it’s interesting to compare experiences and there’s always something to learn, so thanks for sharing the background story of your trip to Wales!
