Our adventures took us to Wales, an often overlooked part of the UK, but Wales has a lot of history and natural beauty, and some of the friendliest people.
We started up north and were seeking out one thing in particular… castles!
As you can see, we found some castles. Our first stop was near Abergele, at Gwrych Castle. Technically you’re not supposed to go near the castle, but we skirted around the perimeter and admired it from afar. Then we headed to Conwy for the night.
I did not know that a walled town like Conwy existed in the UK, so to say that I was pleasantly surprised when we got there would be an understatement. I loved everything about Conwy. The castle, the boats, the smallest house in Great Britain, the food. One night there was not enough.
From Conwy we headed through Snowdonia National Park. We had originally planned to do a big walk while we were there, but we simply ran out of time (and it was pretty rainy too). So after a night in Dolgellau, we headed south.
And though we didn’t visit any castles in south Wales, we did see caves, waterfalls, distilleries, beaches and a male Welsh choir. All of which were pretty goddamn amazing.
So all in all, Wales has lot to offer. I know a lot of English people dismiss Wales and the Welsh people, but I cannot recommend it enough.
