Trompin’ Around Wales – Part 1

Back in May 2023 we met my parents in Birmingham, England and took a train to Wales for a lot of exploring on foot. We stayed in 3 different little towns at inns, with some transport between them on foot and some via taxi. This is Part 1 — arriving in Porthmadog.

Arrival and Porthmadog

This is clearly a fancy-yacht-person kind of town.

When we finally arrived at our destination town, we rewarded ourselves with some Welsh Rarebit.

After that, we took the train back to Porthmadog. The next morning we traveled by taxi to Beddgelert.
