    ... me, this is a sad castle because it had such great potential to be perfect for its purpose and yet never got to prove itself.
    It is known as the history teacher's fantasy castle with its 13th century classic proportions and perfect symmetry - sigh!

    ... us!) So we walked - VERY uphill (and Ron's two cases are VERY heavy). We went further than 1/2 mile, to no avail. There are NO addresses, per se, so we didn't even know if we were close.

    ... 2 inches in height), we thought we’d go to visit Mount Snowden. We were yet undecided about whether we’d walk up the mountain or take the train.

When we saw the cost of parking we were further put off and decided to take the ...

    After lunch, Gwynne and Eleri took us to Llangollen to take a horse drawn boat ride through the Llangollen Canal. It was a very serene leisurely ride through the Welsh countryside. Llangollen was a bustling town where the International Eisteddfod is held each year. I would like to come back to ride across the Pontcysylite Aqueduct which was opened ...
