Hey everyone! We're back with another exciting and totally exhausting blog post.
Last week, on Thursday, we didn't have any plans, so that morning we decided to go on a hike. As our cottage was in Conwy, hiking up Conwy Mountain was a priority. At first, we didn't really know what we were doing, so we went to the tourist information centre to get some direction and a map. Our hike went fairly smoothly, except it was practically all uphill. But once on the summit, the view was totally worth it. We could see for miles. It was beautiful! After summiting, we were all exhausted, so we turned back and did a total of just under 5 miles. After that we had a relaxing evening around Conwy.
On Saturday, things got a little more interesting. We were going to go on another hike, only longer. A lot longer. Because of this plan, we had a fairly early start leaving the house just after 9:00 a.m. This time our destination was another village by the name of Llanfairfechan. The estimated mileage was 13 miles, which certainly seemed a little daunting at first. Anyhow, the hike went smoothly the first few minutes, until my dad realized he'd left his phone at home. Mom went back to the house to get it, while we explored the surrounding area we were in for a few minutes. After that incident, we headed to the trail we'd taken only two days prior. We soon passed the point we'd turned off of to go to the summit, while we continued on the trail going on the side of the mountain. The trails were pretty easy to follow, and I'd say we made pretty good time. As time passed and with it the miles, we took in the beautiful views and landscape.
