Just inside the village, the bridge crosses the rocks and you can get down to a hiking path from it

Wales was my Easter present one year. Jim surprised me when I arrived in England for a two week stay with him. We took the train over, which seemed to take forever, at the time I didn't have a laptop. We stayed in Betws-y-coed which is a small area in the mountains, it's a great place for hiking and there's a small village where there were really cute shops, lots of hiking camping shops and some little souvenir places. We stayed in a Inn just outside the village and walked back and forth, lots of exercise. Wales is amazing, deep green fields as far as you can see, thick woods, massive gray boulders that lay around the edges of the rivers covered in soft green moss. We spent our time just walking around and taking photos.

Betws-y-coed the village, there's one road that rund straight through it, hiking paths to the side, farms to the other, beautiful place
Most of my photos are on 35mm, and my battery for by compact digital went dead when we were out, but there is a large waterfall not far up one of the hiking trails that is just amazing. The fish and chips (of course, I don't like fish so it's chips and curry sauce for me) are really good here. But, be careful, the burgers may not be beef, there is a ton of lamb in Wales. I can honestly say I don't like lamb cause I ate a burger thinking it was beef and said I didn't like it. It's the only way Jim believes me when I say I don't like something. Try it not knowing what it is... Anyway, loads of people like lamb so if you do, that's Wales is the place to go. But, if you don't like seeing your food soon before or after eating it, perhaps you should wait a little while before looking at the cute and fluffy white things romping about in the fields all over the place. All and all I personally love Wales, it's very photogenic.
