    At one time, he was the highest paid actor in Hollywood, he was married to the world's most beautiful woman and had one of the most recognisable voices in showbusiness - he was of course, Richard Burton.

    Despite the glamour and success of his later years, his remarkable life began in far humbler surroundings...

    What's 177 miles long, has the sea at either end and is celebrating its fortieth birthday this year?

    It's Offa's Dyke, the ancient border which at one time separated Wales and England. I spent the day walking along parts of the pathway, which is one of Britain's National Trails.

    I think it's fair to...

    You can get a lot of walking done in a week - as I've just discovered after spending half-term in North Pembrokeshire, getting back to basics.

    I stayed in the hamlet of Tregwynt (location of the famous woollen mill), a stone's throw away from the coastal path, which can guarantee a good bracing walk...

    Well, what a difference a week and a cold front makes!

    Last Thursday it was hot and sunny with temperatures reaching 23 Celsius in Snowdonia whereas today it was only 10 Celsius.

    Our correspondent Iolo af Dafydd took this photo on the A5 near Capel Curig today. It looks like snow but it's actually hail...

    Yesterday, I went for a stroll from Goytre Wharf to Mynydd Garn Wen in south east Wales - a walk I did a few years ago for BBC Radio Wales Weatherman Walking.

    It was good to do the walk again and show a couple of friends the way. The weather was breezy with sunshine and a few heavy showers.

    I was on Gower at the weekend to open the annual Gower walking festival at Caswell Bay. Thanks to all those who turned up and did the seven mile walk with me, which we filmed for Weatherman Walking last year.

    It was nice to do the walk and not be followed by the cameras but having told everyone it would...

    I'm feeling a little tired today after completing two walks over the weekend. On Saturday I went to the Brecon Beacons and conquered Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn.

    The weather was good - very hazy but fine and warm with just a gentle breeze.

    On Sunday, I went to Llanthony...

    It's very icy again today which seems to sum up the weekend weather quite well really.

    I was surprised at how heavy a frost we had on the coast during Saturday and Sunday but at least it was dry with blue sky and sunshine - in SE Wales anyway.
