Wales and Steam Trains

It's been a little while since I posted. I did try a few times but couldn't seem to upload the photos for the last post until this evening.

We spent a week in Wales for our summer holiday. We have visited Wales for the last six (now 7) years, mostly because the children love trains and Wales has many beautifully restored steam engines and railways, as well as being the source of Thomas the Tank Engine stories (Talyllyn Railway).

This year we stayed in the most impressive B&B/small hotel Ffynnon in Dolgellau. The town is one of the nicest we've stayed in - that includes Llandudno, Barmouth, Porthmadog and Ffestiniog. The restaurants in Dolgellau seemed to be better than many in other towns in Wales as the food is freshly cooked - not that common in many restaurants we've been to.
Ffynnon is very impressive, real luxury where you'll feel minded - not intrusively and where you'll really be able to relax and shut out the world for a while.
That's how it was for me - moments where I really felt I was on holiday, able to relax and felt comfortable and able to switch off some of the unhelpful thinking.
