More Wales – Swansea and Tenby

During our stay in UK we decided to optimize transportation and thus we were in a place that is well known for being just in the middle of all the routes.
London, Southwest, Southeast, North, The Midlands, all these places are around 2 hundred something miles away from our place.
Driving in UK is not a pleasant activity, lot of cars, road works, bad weather, lot of detours, traffic cameras…

The above means that two hundred and something miles are almost four hundred kilometres and four to five hours to arrive your destination. 

We were forced to split our Welsh -one day express trip- into a -two days explorer expedition- in order to visit a decent place that would pay for the time and gas used.
Forget anything you have heard about Swansea, just don’t stop there and move North towards Tenby and around.

With so many pictures to display, enjoy and comment, one sometimes miss several nice ones.
Prior to our trip to Thailand, we were in UK. Obviously we were “invited” to go there rather than we desired to go, but anyways…
I managed to make some good friends there, like Rosie – Belgium- and a bunch of cows made out concrete!!!!

 Planes, gas stations and traffic lights close to HRG airport
 You know Rosie, the Belgian hare? Nice fur that I envy
 We manage to drive high output luxury cars like this MB S-Class
And a lot of “non bunnie family” friends came with me on asisgnment

Bunnies were there – the boat project –

We have done more than 2.000 miles in UK by now. Father Bunny got a new car, a nice DS3, a tiny car, but quite nice.

Today we’re in the British Riviera (yes, they’re crazy) but we have visited very nice places like Wales.

Check some pictures I took in a medieval town




Sunny Midsummer day at Buckinghamshire

After our summer holidays in Thailand – where cars have no heaters, just air conditioning – we arrived to Barcelona.

There, surprisingly, temperature was even higher than in Koh Samui!! Tired from a long plane travel from Bangkok to Helsinki and from there to Barcelona we unpacked all our stuff and specially all the nice presents our Cafemiffy made to us.
I was especially lucky, because my friends brought me this beautiful and adorable small white rabbit.
He wanted to go around Barcelona, but rabbits (specially white ones) don’t like beaches and sun.
A few days ago we took a plane again and now we are in United Kingdom enjoying a mix of rain & sun that people of this area (around 100 km North of London) call “Midsummer”.
We are in a beautiful red brick two stories typical house with a nice garden, so what could be better than some afternoon picnic?



Around Cambridge in a sunny day: cabriolet cars

Yesterday route was great, of course heavy traffic, speed cameras everywhere, etc, but it was sunny!!!


All the people, even the BBC was truly excited about the second day in a row with sun. Honestly I prefer rain, because I have plenty of sun in my home city, but it was nice to walk over the green grass with a wonderful sun and with termometers around 30 degrees.

With such a sunny day one needs a cabriolet car to feel the fresh air. So I decided to check what Porsche and Aston Martin could offer me.

Sadly my father said soon we will return home and there we don’t have room for a new car. 😦

our route, 230 miles, 5:20 hours driving time
average speed around 35 mph.


Rosie: The Belgian Hare

After lunch we went to Rosie’s place. Rosie is a beautiful red haired hare that is living north of London for two years now.


Hares are faster than rabbits and its body is more athletic. Sure they don’t think the same but they are dumber than the average rabbit. So if you don’t have brain, at least you can trust your legs.


Just kidding, but as I am becoming older, the jokes about my round face are pulling my leg harder.


We got to know some of her friends like Norman, a fifteen days old cow that was born in a very complicated birth (his mother died). Norman needs to be feeded four times a day.



The Wool Pack Pub

 Acqua di Panna for Tometaro and a nice Ale for me.
 Onion Rings in a British Pub
A nice veal steak, very rare for FB

Today we went close to Stoke Mandeville to meet my friend Rosie. She is a red haired Belgian hare who moved from the continent.

Hares are different from bunnies and apart from how they look like, they love to live alone.

Anyways the road from our place to her place was closed so we got lost in a maze of secondary roads and when we were tired and hungry we decided to stop in a nice pub called The Wool Pack.

It was Tometaro first time in a pub and we enjoyed a sunny (not kidding) morning in a small British village.
