Lost in the Mountains







It's about time I share with you all the little adventures we've been on whilst my brother was around! First of all: one of the best holidays ever. Secondly: ZIP WORLD!

Well, I haven't myself been on it, but I had the best time following Jason and Thomas along their journeys to both zip lines. The best one being to the second zip line, right at the top of the mountain, as we had a 15 minutes tour in a big old truck to reach it. And because I was translating everything to my brother, I managed to get on the platform and took some cool photos when both of them were launched. I have to say, it looked amazing and I might give it a go... One day! We were so lucky with the weather (it didn't rain!) and the staff were really helpful. Did you know that they do a short video of your ride for free? My brother was really chuffed to send it to my parents and it's such a great souvenir. To book tickets, click right here!




After a quick picnic in Betws-y-Coed and some tasty cakes at the Alpine Coffee Shop (I had the caramel and chocolate tart and it was delicious!) we were back on the road to get to our next adventure! By that time my brother was already a bit tired, but hey, he had no choice!






Although there's not much left of the Dolwyddelan Castle, it was definitely worth the trip just with the views you get of Snowdonia. It definitely helped that we were on our own as it felt extra special, but I actually really enjoyed going around it, exploring every corner, and climbing on dodgy walls to take the best shot. We only had a tiny bit of rain and came back home to a hot chocolate with marshmallows (best end to a tiring day). I'd say it was a great first day with my brother and I felt so privileged to get so much time with him.

Stay tuned for the rest of our exciting holiday!
