  • Day22

    Betws-y-coed

    September 22 in the United Kingdom

    A lovely day exploring such a lovely area of Wales. Left our fairly rustic accomodation in search of a laundromat as washing machine not working! We drove about 39 minutes to Llandudno where we anticipated finding the one on the Internet. To our surprise this was a huge town on the coast with a whole strand of hotels and shops. There were cars everywhere and crowds of people on very narrow streets. We drove around but had little hope of finding a laundramat as the streets were so busy, and narrow and all the signage was in Welsh! We carried onto Conwy, a much smaller and quieter town characterised by a huge castle and castle walls that surrounded the town except for the sea frontage. We had our left over tea with us so found a spot to eat it, which was lovely. We headed into the castle and every turn was amazing. We actually found it more impressive than Edinburgh as older and more to see, even though no guides and a lot less people. Really worth a visit. We then walked down to the pier to find Britain’s smallest house. Not only was it small but so was the lady outside so I looked like a giant! We carried onto a very small village only 4 miles from where we are staying and located a good laundramat. While our washing went round I got rounder by eating yet another gorgeous scone, this time at the quaintest little house covered in ivy with very low ceilings and heaps of character. After picking up our washing we returned to the cottage to organise a parcel of “heavy gifts” to send home. We then wandered into town for dinner and a lovely drink- and good wifi at a bar. Ireland tomorrow.Read more

    Gareth Wyn Jones - Family Farm

    August 4 in the United Kingdom

    Got to visit a sheep farm in northern Wales operated by Gareth Wyn Jones...a local farmer trying to find ways to make sheep farming profitable and useful in the current economy. Honest, genuine, and forward thinking in his views. Great guy, and great time!😊

    Bounce Below

    July 9 in the United Kingdom

    We found this place before we left as a surprise for the kids - an old Victorian slate mine that they have turned into a trampoline park!
    After walking a wee way into the old mines we came across this amazing world of nets and slides, several floors and rooms all set over a huge cavern, very cool and exhilarating. Unfortunately no one mentioned you had to be fit for this, after 10 mins Dad had to hop out for a rest... we all loved it though and it's certainly not something we'll forget easily.Read more

    Conwy RSPB reserve

    August 21, 2015 in the United Kingdom

    Reserve is by the estuary overlooking Conwy Castle. Friendly staff who advised us on the best telescope to get. We ended up buying another tripod too (see the kit in the photo). Great quality telescope enabled us to see loads including Beautiful lapwings, Bar Tailed Godwits, Tufted Ducks and Dunlins.

    Landudno + Conwy

    June 26 in the United Kingdom

    In schönen Strandbad von Llandudno haben wir einen Parkplatz gefunden und sind zu einem Aussichtspunkt aufgebrochen. Nach über zwei Stunden, vielen wunderschönen Fotomotiven und einigen schmalen Wegen über Stock und Stein gönnten wir uns noch ein Eis am Pier.

    Die Weiterfahrt führte uns ins benachbarte Conwy, doch leider hatte die Burg schon geschlossen. Dafür gab es Fish'n'Chips am kleinsten Haus Großbritanniens.Read more

    Llandudno

    October 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Heute ging es zum grössten Seebad von Wales nach Llandudno, hier war eine Fahrt mit einer Strassenbahn angesagt, die auf halbem Weg zur Bergfahrt wurde. An der Bergstation angekommen studierten wir die Tafeln und staunten nicht schlecht dass hier sogar die Schweizer Firma Doppelmayr am Werk war. Das Tram wir über einen Kabelzug angetrieben und das eine Tram zieht das andere mit der Schwerkraft hoch. Auf dem Berggipfel haben wir auch noch das Restaurant mit den feinen Desserts erkundet.Read more
