I visited Snowdonia with my friend, fellow VT'er Sandysmith and her charming husband Dave. As I was staying with them for 4 days and they knew how much I desired a visit to that region, Sandy and Dave kindly offered to take me there and even to pay for my accommodations whilst there. How nice is that?!!
We set off from West Kirby, where they live, stopping along the way in Conwy before eventually reaching Beddgelert which is where we would spend the night.
Our mission was to climb Mt Snowdon the following day, which also happened to be Sandy's 40th Birthday.
That was quite an adventure and you can read about it in the two travelogues.

    Hi Laura. I enjoyed reading your tips and travelogues on Snowdonia. We're planning to climb Snowden and some of the other mountains in the area in August.
