I haven’t travelled anywhere this year, for one reason or another, but do love to travel, usually local places or places a little further afield. For me, it isn’t just getting to a destination that I really enjoy but it’s also the actual travel, the getting to the bus or train station, seeing people doing the same thing, and then of course getting on the bus, knowing that I can relax for a few hours, have a sleep if I want, have a snack and drink of coke and most importantly for me, watching all the towns and cities and fields and all kinds of places and houses and businesses pass by and trying to take it all in; it gets too much trying to see it all, but to me it’s very pleasurable and of course the cherry on top is that you are going to somewhere nice, for just a day, or perhaps a couple of days.
When I go, wherever I go, I always take my camera, always and I love to take photographs to remind me of the nice places I’ve been, even though when I go to the same places again I take more photographs anyway. I like to take pictures of beaches, sunsets, castles, little towns and villages, places off the beaten track and just places that are peaceful and, dare-I-say-it, quaint. Just wanted to add, these two towns, Llandudno and Conwy, are both in North Wales. You can google them and see them both on google maps too.
Been a bit busy this week, with one thing and another, so I’ll cut it short and leave you with a few photographs of my travels. I hope to write some more about my travels, with plenty more pix, very soon. I hope you like them?! If you want to see more detail, just click on a pic.
