Wandering - Weekend in Llangollen

Hey friends! Hope you're having a good weekend so far. Last weekend, we wanted to so something special for Jason's birthday, so we decided to spend some time in Llangollen. We enjoyed it so much that I just had to share my photos with you. The photo above is of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

We obviously had to stop at The Corn Mill as everyone told us the food was amazing there. We weren't disappointed! Although we were absolutely full after our main meal, we couldn't resist to the mouthwatering desserts on the menu. This chocolate torte was to die for!



The view from the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct was breathtaking. I have to say, I'm quite afraid of heights, but I didn't want to miss the amazing views on this sunny day! I was so brave ;)





We finished our first day in Llangollen with a little relaxing stroll around the town.

On the second day, we woke up early and decided to do a 7 mile walk, starting along the canal to the Horseshoe Falls. We carried on a little bit too much and finally walked a long way around the hills before arriving to the Valle Crucis Abbey.




After walking 10 miles (yes, we realised that the way we took was definitely much longer than we thought!) we arrived at Castell Dinas Bran, an old castle ruin steeped in Welsh legend, absolutely knackered and under the pouring rain. But it didn't stop us! After taking a few photos, we headed down to the town for well deserved food.
