Llangollen

Llangollen is a real small place, you could easily see everything in a couple hours, perhaps less.

Although it’s so lovely that spending a night here is still worth it, just to enjoy the tranquility of this town and have a meal by the river.

We checked out the Corn Mill which was a large pub right on the water. Everyone’s food looked spectacular and my own curry was delicious.

Their view is essentially this by the way, not too shabby.

Literally 100m from our hotel was the Vintage Rose Tea Room, a tiny place that served a great selection of teas along with your traditional scones and sweet selections. There’s a few similar places in town so having a cuppa is a nice way to spend a couple hours in the afternoon.

Otherwise, I simply walked around enjoying the views. A couple of the guys in my tour group even rented bikes and explored the nearby landscape this way.

We had caught the ferry from the Republic of Ireland to Wales and en route to Llangollen, with our eventual destination being Cardiff, stopped into Llanfairpwllgwyngyll or the place with the longest name in Europe.

It was named on purpose for promotion and I have to say judging by all the tourists there, it’s definitely still working!

These are a few snaps from this drive to Llangollen, I wish I had a few more to share that aren’t super blurry trying to take them on a bus.

The landscape is so lushiously green in Wales and a few of the New Zealanders on board jokingly said it reminded them of home once we saw hundreds of sheep!

I would love to come back and road trip around this small, but feature packed country one day.
