Climbing Mountains

I've taken a break from blogging this last few months for various reasons but hey I am definitely back now and I have so much to write about. I'll start with my most recent escapades...

As you can probably tell by the title of this blog, I climbed a mountain. Mount Snowden to be precise. I have to say that I think it was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. The view on the way up was breathtaking and an absolute delight to walk up.

We weren't even that bothered when we got rained on a little when we first started as it was just so beautiful. We were told to be prepared for all weather and they weren't wrong it changed so many times as we were climbing higher & higher but still the views were amazing.

It wasn't all plain sailing though as we got to about 2 hours in and the fog decended the path almost disappeared and it turned into actual climbing. It got quiet scary at points especially when you couldn't see more than 10 steps ahead of you but I had my partner in crime with me, the hubby, who was my rock (no pun intended) and he got me up that mountain. You couldn't see a thing through the fog but we made it and that's all that matters.

Considering we did little to no research other than what gorgeous little B&B we were going to book, I'm amazed we made it. I also thought it would be ok to go in my primark trainers (not my brightest idea.) We later found out that we had actually not picked the easiest route by going on the miners track. All in all it was so tough but such an awesome thing to do. I will never forget it.

Wales is such a beautiful picturesque place to stay. We couldn't turn the corner without seeing another scenic view. We stayed in the cutest B&B in Betws-y-coed called Bod Gwynedd.

The owners were so lovely and the room was so chic I loved it. We are now looking to buy a new bed as this was so comfy I wish I could've taken it with me.

We also checked out a few of the local waterfalls in the area. This was Conwy falls. Absolutely loving my new camera as you can tell by the picture quality it's just so much better than my last one but more on that in my next post. 

Thanks for reading. I'll post again soon. S x
