Llandudno is a Victorian seaside town located in North Wales. North Shore Beach is large with a wide pedestrianised promenade. But there’s so much to do in Llandudno aside from the beach!

It’s also home to a herd of wild goats!Continue reading “7 Things To Do In Llandudno, North Wales”
The colourful village of Portmeirion in Wales, UK was a project that started back in 1925 by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis. It looks like it’s been pulled right out of Italy and dumped on the Welsh coast! The village was a little like an art project, a creative outlet. To fund the project, he converted a building into a hotel which is still in operation today as the Portmeirion Hotel.
Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, with a summit of 3559ft/1085m. It is the 2nd highest mountain in the ‘Three Peaks Challenge‘, a popular hiking challenge where participants have to climb the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), Wales (Snowdon) and England (Scafell Pike). Usually the aim of the challenge is to climb all 3 in 24 hours but some people choose to stretch it out to 3 days, climbing one a day. Now I’m no mountain climber, I didn’t even walk UP Snowdon, only down, and it took me a couple of days to recover, so kudos to the hikers that do all 3 in a short amount of time!
