A road sign on the way to Borth Beach illustrates Wales’s seemingly unpronounceable place-names. Anglesey has the distinction of having the railway station with the longest name in Britain, possibly the whole world: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, which translates as “St. Mary’s church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the church of St. Tysilio of the red cave.”
Hi everyone! Sorry this blog hasn’t been updated for a while - I was immensely busy for the last week or so, and the queue ran out. Hopefully I’ll get it back on track soon enough.
Anyway, I hope you’re all buying poppies for 11th November! I bought mine today.
I also found some quite interesting pictures of the Angel of the North being constructed.
Evening approaches at Llyn Gwynant campsite near Beddgelert in Snowdonia, Wales.
Lots of happy campers were firing up their barbecues beside the Afon Glaslyn river when I took this photo on one of my camping trips.
Named after the lake, this campsite lies in the shadow of mount Snowdon, in a beautiful secluded valley between the river and Llyn Gwynant. Just the basics here, with no shops or food outlets for a few miles, nice and peaceful!
Interesting fact, this place was featured in the Tomb Raider 2 film as the Chinese village - the stone bridge (seen in the film when motorbikes cross it) lies just behind where I stood to take this picture.
