We left Dublin early on the 18th headed for Wales. Our first three and a half hours were spent on a ferry crossing the Irish Sea. It was a pleasant journey. We sat in the very back and enjoyed each others company. A few napped and some of us listened to our IPODS and played with our DS Lites. I was one of those. When we arrived in Wales we were met by our new coach driver. I was missing Greg already. The new guy was a little cheeky and made a lot of women bashing statements. Did he not realize he was outnumbered? The Welsh countryside was gorgeous. Our first stop was at the town with the longest name in the world. We stopped there for a bathroom break and to get our passports stamped. BTW...the town with the longest name is: LLnfairpwilgwyngyllgogerychwyrndribwukkiantysukuigogogoch. What a mouthful. After this stop our next stop was at Conwy. We ate lunch, did banking business, and toured the castle. It was a precious town. A lot of internationals came here to summer by the shore. The harbor was laden with boats. It was a picture perfect town and we enjoyed the time in Conwy. AFter this stop we traveled on to Snowdonia Glacier Park. Snowdonia was awesome. The tallest mountain - Snowdan still had snow in the upper peaks. It was so beautiful here. I would love to live in this area of the UK and just write. It was the perfect get away for the artsy community. A photographers dream.
