Last week, I took a little work trip to Llandudno.
We left Cardiff Central at 13:21 on Tuesday, and arrived back at 21:42 on Thursday- and in between, squished in two ten-hour days in a conference center. So truth be told- I didn't get much time for exploring. I did find a statue of Alice in Wonderland though...
However. When I arrived on Tuesday night, I pulled my running shoes out of my bag, laced them up, and set off for a run along the sea front- only to be stopped less than five minutes in by a phone call from a colleague who had left her laptop on the train. (She managed to recover it, fortunately!!)
I've been to North Wales before, but never Llandudno- it was so pretty though, in a charming old seaside town kind of way. We had the best of the weather- glorious sunshine, beautiful sunsets, and perfect temperatures- and I could completely see why people apparently holiday here year after year after year.
My hotel room had the loveliest little balcony, with a little table and a view of the sea- which I made the most of by enjoying a cup of tea out there before breakfast on Wednesday morning. And the lure of the sea proved too much for me on Wednesday evening, when I ran down to the shoreline before supper with colleagues, resulting in sandy feet and a big smile when I eventually dragged myself away.
I didn't get chance to explore the pier though. Which means I'll just have to find another excuse to trek up there- what a terrible, terrible shame...
Have you explored anywhere new recently?
