Tomorrow afternoon, I’m off to Wales for a week. I’ll be flying to Manchester and then taking the train to Llandudno, a Victorian seaside town on the North coast of Wales. It’s an excellent base to visit the medieval town of Conwy and Snowdonia National Park, which has the highest mountains in the UK outside of Scotland.
While I’m in Wales, I’ll be researching a story for iExplore.com. iExplore not only operates privately guided tours all over the world, but it also has a website with tons of useful travel content. Even if iExplore’s luxurious trips sound out of your reach, it’s worth it to check out the site to research destinations that you’d like to visit.
This is my first trip to Wales. I can’t decide if the closest I’ve ever come was last November’s trip to London or if was last March when I went to see a replica of the World’s Longest Train Station Sign when it was visiting the British Memorial Garden in NYC’s financial district. Either way, I can’t wait to hear those Welsh accents and see the castles and the sheep!
