You may have seen the recent TV adverts from the Welsh Assembly, ‘Holidays Unpackaged’, well I’ve just returned from a holiday and Wales, so how do they compare to reality.
Well I’ve outdone myself this time. I have found many outstanding holiday cottages over the years but none in such a spectacular location.
Last day of the holiday – time for just one more excursion – the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
I’d seen it featured on a TV show earlier in the year and as it was close to the route home I added it to my itinery. Recently it was added to the list of World Heritage Sites.
Last full day in Wales and it end it ended with a spectacular sunset.
But the day started with heavy rain so it was destined to be a bit of a mixed bag.
Paid a return visit to Conwy today.
The town has a lot of charm and contains one of the best castles in Wales – there are some very high towers that command stunning views.
Today I took a drive over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey and visited Moelfre for the start of a walk along the coastal path.
Moelfre is one of the nicer places I have visited on the island and it is reminiscent of Cornwall.
Drove to the top of the Great Orme and took the Tram back down into Llandudno.
