As a compensation for my lack of posts recently, I am breaking this article up into different parts (^_^). This is Part 1 of my North Wales trip. The first stop was Conwy, where I have previously visited some time in Spring last year. If you have read my previous post of Conwy, you may have remembered that I did not manage to enter Conwy Castle at the time. Well, the main focus this time will be on Conwy Castle and views of Conwy from the Castle, and I will also present things previously not talked about from a different point of view.
Firstly, a quick geography lesson. Wales is a country situated in Great Britain, and forms part of the United Kingdom. The people are known as Welsh, and they speak the Welsh (which supposedly involves a lot of spitting). Here is a glimpse of the Welsh language...
Conwy castle from a distance. This will be my first stop.
Correction.... the first stop is actually the toilet. I was fascinated by the toilet for some reason. ^^
Entrance to the castle
Inside Conwy castle.
A view of the sea from one of its towers. Note the rainbow (remember that it was raining?)
And another view...
The Great Orme from a distance, to which I will be visiting later.
And Wales won't be complete without views of cute little sheeps grazing on the grass ^^
Conwy in autumn.
Here is a model of how the castle should look like during its glorious days
The Conwy Suspension Bridge (left) and the Conwy Railway Bridge (right).
A nice little garden on an autumn's day outside the castle.
The town centre. Conwy is just a small town.
Recalling the nice experience I had when climbing the city walls 1.5 years ago, I climbed it again. You can see the nice houses with their chimneys from here.
The dead end still looks the same as from last year (>.<)
I slightly regretted not entering "The Smallest House in Great Britain" the last time, so I was quite determined to enter it this time. Doesn't seem too small now that I'm standing beside it, but then again I'm not exactly that tall (>.<)
Alas, nobody told me that it was closed during this time (TAT). That explains why there wasn't a Welsh lady dressed in a traditional Welsh costume outside this time.
I'll leave you (until I complete the next post) with a friendly, little seagull by the sea (^^)
(And no, I didn't have lunch at Conwy that afternoon, so no pictures of food :( (I can hear somebody rejoicing). Unless you want to eat the poor little seagull...)
