<p>After a few weeks away leading GeoWorld Travel tours in Scotland I was back in #BreconBeacons today and took 2 Americans on our ‘Heart of the Park and #Waterfall Country’ tour in the #fforestfawrgeopark. The weather was great even if the recent lack of rain left the waterfalls looking a little empty. #visitwales (at Brecon Beacons National Park)</p>
