May 31, 2016 - beautiful buildings, beautiful beaches, beautiful orme

An early start (Turner early) as we knew from our past bus travels the 90 minute trip promised would likely be closer to 2 hours. I think they must set the route by driving it at midnight with no traffic or people getting on and off but I digress. Llandudno was our goal and it didn’t disappoint. This has been a holiday destination of the “fashionables” since the late 1800’s with its setting on a peninsula featuring wide curving beaches on both sides and ending at The Great Orme, which is a giant hill at the tip of the peninsula. It also...

Sep 23, 2015 - Wales - Llandudno

Today is free day - so a sleep in - YAY! We went down for breaky at 8.30am and missed the rush which was good. What to do today..............well we decided not to go to Cardiff as I am actually getting sick of travelling. So we thought we would explore and see what is around Llandudno. First stop the "Great Orme" by tram. We walked up to the tram station and waited as we were a little early - first tram does not leave until 10.00am. However on this walk we have discovered at least another 10 pubs - so I take that back the other day - there...

Sep 21, 2015 - Wales - Llandudno

We were up at 5.30am today as we needed to leave for Lincoln before 6.30am. We had to be in Unity Square by 7.00am to catch our bus to Normanton (which was then taking us to Wales). The bus arrived right on time and we said our cheerio's to George and Carl and were on our way. Of course I had a little nanny on the way - hehehehe - the drive took us about 1 hour 45 mins. At the interchange we had a cuppa and eccles cake as we had to wait until 10.30am before departing to Wales. The weather has been miserable so fingers crossed that it fines...

Jun 15, 2015 - A revisit to Llandudno

Today we revisited one of our favourite seaside towns, Llandudno. We parked up at the far side of the bay on which Llandudno sits and walked around the bay to the town and then walked part of the Great Orme road, finding little nooks and crannies we hadn’t found before. We of course stopped for coffee several times and also got tickets for a concert on the following Saturday night for the Côr y Penrhyn male voice choir and the famous Black Dyke Band.

May 4, 2015 - Chester & North Wales

Ich beschloss, das dreitägige Wochenende ("May-Day" am Montag) für einen Trip nach Wales zu nutzen. Chester Auf der Hinfahrt legte ich in Chester einen Halt ein. Chester ist eine sehr spezielle und trotzdem typisch englische Stadt mit einer reichen Geschichte. Zum einen führt z.B. die von den Römern gebaute und von den Sachsen und den Normannen erweiterte Stadtmauer auch heute noch fast um die ganze Stadt und ist grösstenteils begehbar. Zudem hat es eine Kathedrale aus dem 11. Jahrhundert. Da der Turm nicht mehr genügend "stark" ist, um den...

Jul 17, 2012 - Llandudno

It looked as if it was going to be a good day so we headed along the coast to Llandudno. The very genteel town sits on a headland with the Llandudno Bay to the east and the Conwy Bay to the west. On the Llandudno Bay side there is beach and promanade with views of the Great Orme to the north and Little Orme to the south , both limestone hummocks. We walked from the southern end of the town along the promanade to the main part of the town. It certainly was a nice day for a change. The history of Llandudno revolves around the Great Orme...

May 25, 2011 - Wales - Llandudno and Conwy

Although it is easy to chat with people in Wales as they all speak English and they seem to have a lot of time, it is not so easy to get anywhere. That is not because of the train and bus systems but because all of the town names are in Welsh or an English translation of Welsh. So when I asked the bus driver, how do I get to Blaenau Ffestiniog (pronunciation = BLEH-nigh FES-tin-yog) he/she has no idea what I just said and I’m sure I insulted a few of them with my pronunciation. Here are a few of the towns we visited but I know I can’t...

Sep 19, 2009 - Wales

Thursday, September 17 - Saturday, September 19 The drive to Llandudno in Wales was very long (for England) - about 180 miles. Signs in Wales are in both Welsh and English. We found our hotel, The Clontarf, easily. It's a B&B really, and we are on the third floor, American style. Great views from our windows and almost on the ocean. We found a great resaurant called "The Seahorse" nearby and had a delicious supper. Next day, Friday, we explored the area. It is far more rugged than the Cotswolds, but what they call mountains are not really...

Jun 7, 2007 - Dun Laoghaire to Llandudno

This morning after breakfast we packed up our backpacks and headed down to the ferry port to catch the ferry from Dun Laoghaire back to Holyhead in Wales. Upon our arrival we caught the train and decided to get off in Llandudno (pronounced Clan did no)......on the way we passed thru the Welsh town that has the longest name in the world....(please see picture for spelling)....it has 59 letters and I doubt that anyone except a Welshman could pronounce it....The town of Llandudno is a seaside resort and retirement village. There are a number...
