Christmas Fair in Portmeirion

For our last proper day out in North Wales, we got some tickets for the Portmeirion's Christmas Fair and decided to go on Saturday at the opening time to make sure we wouldn't miss a thing!

You know me by now, I can't help but take shots of my surroundings, and true to form I realised I snapped more photos of the picturesque town rather than the actual fair! But hey, it's no reason for not sharing right?




















You're probably wondering why you can't see that many Christmas decorations, well, that's because there weren't any! Kind of. We had such a great day over there, and it was great to walk around a Wintery Portmeirion, but if we had one thing to say, it's the fact that we were expecting more of a Winter Wonderland kind of vibe with plenty of Christmassy lights and decorations everywhere. Or at least around the stalls.

The products sold at the stalls were great though, and if we weren't moving next week, we would have been tempted to buy quite a few things! We ate our way around the town and drank our mulled cider happily. I didn't take photos of the fabulous german hot dog because it was a right mess and too delicious to stop and take photos of it! We also heard a few musicians, singers and choirs, and the one pictured above was our favourite.

When the sun came out in the afternoon, we decided to walk around the gardens and forest. The view was amazing from the hotel!



Whilst we didn't want to leave too late as Jason was driving the Capri back, I insisted on staying a little longer to see the town all illuminated in the dark. It did feel a little more Christmassy then as the couple of trees they had really stood out.

It was the second time that we visited Portmeirion (first post right here), and I can say without a doubt that I still love this place. I mean, how can you resist these colourful buildings? I would definitely recommend to visit it during Spring-Summer.

One day I'll own one of these houses ;)
