    Mini-break in North Wales

    Just spent some more time driving 'The Triangle' and thought we'd look for a few new roads to try...Smiley

    Took the Bangor road out of Conwy and found ourselves on the Sychnant Pass.  Liked it so much we stayed the night to do it again! Smiley

    Took some photos along the way - the quality isn't brilliant (camera-phone Galaxy S11) but the roads and scenery were..Smiley

    Not a road to mess with - no second chance if you leave it abruptly!!

    What a nice car, looks strangely familiar - oh yes, I've got one just like it.  Smiley

    Sounds like you had a good time.  Just recently got back from a 1,400 km round trip up the Garden Route coast - the GTS just keeps getting better!

    Beautiful pics!

    Re: Mini-break in North Wales

    Thanks for taking us along John. Usually I love the area's you guys post from England and I like the parts I have seen but this area will be off my list. It just leaves me feeling cold for some reason.


    Re: Mini-break in North Wales

    Thanks for the comments guys....cool

    Tom - North Wales looks somewhat bleak at this time of the year and, of course, a mobile phone camera doesn't help to do it justice anyway.  Believe me, it comes alive in a month or two.  I'll take my camera next time and hopefully you'll see the difference and feel the warmth...wink

    John, many thanks for posting - love the report and photos. Smiley

    Looking forward to taking our "new" baby on it's first UK tour in June, we will be in the Ludlow area of Shropshire for a week, then Germany in August to see SWMBO's family and hopefully catch up with Mr & Mrs porsche-jeck.

    DC - If you're in Ludlow for a week we should be able to meet up somewhere...it's not that far from me.  I quite often use the A49 to get to Symonds Yat and to South Wales.  We'll have to give it some thought closer to the date..Smiley

    You're right Gnil, there are similarities, particularly with Southern Ireland around the Ring of Kerry for example..kiss

    Frank - it's a shame you won't be re-visiting 'The Triangle' this year... be sure to let me know if you change your mind...Smiley

    I was in the south , around Clonmel . I' ve spent  4 times one month, and drove there from Switzerland, passing through Whales . Then I went t back and forth from Horsham ( UK ) . When I was in Ireland, I drove many of the south roads and small passes. It was great !

    That would be great, John Smiley

    This is where we will be staying

    between 15th - 22nd June. As you suggest we can think about meeting up nearer the time Smiley
