United Kingdom was in royal wedding fever. Wills and Kate were getting married and to a substantial number of people, this seemed an extremely exciting thing to happen. But for Andrew Bowden the idea of getting out of London and heading off on a good long walk was a much more appealing idea. So he headed off to the peace and tranquillity of mid Wales to walk the Glyndŵr's Way; a trail dedicated to one Owain Glyndŵr. Who? Oh, only the last Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. Yes, to escape one set of royalty, he ended up following in the footsteps of another. Still, at least on the hills there wouldn't people sitting around eating sausages on a stick at a trestle table decorated in blue, white and red bunting. Would there?
