So where is Llangollen? It’s situated in Denbighshire and is a small town with a population of just 3,412. The community in North-East Wales is on the River Dee, which is on the edge of the Berwyn mountains. It has a rich history for it’s background and the name itself was derived from a monk in the 6th century, Saint Collen (from the Welsh llan meaning ‘fortified church yard’ and gollen meaning Collen) who had founded a church by the river.
Llangollen has links to places such as Brittany, Colan, Langolen and Cornwall and lots to see and do for tourists. To the North of the town is the Castell Dinas Bran, also known as a fortress of the Princes of Powys. It also boasts some amazing scenic views from the hills and valleys, perfect for long walks. Something to keep the historians amongst you happy, and something to sight see too.
It has routes for various types of transportation, like railways, waterways and the canal. Llangollen used to be an agricultural and farming area, with sheep farming and weaving being the main trades. Culturally it has a lot to offer too; from a traditional local brass band, the Llangollen Fringe Festival (an independent arts festival which takes place during the summer), the Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod, and Dee Rocks, which is a music event designed to bring in financial support to the smaller good causes that are local, as it’s also a local fundraiser. Today it relies quite a lot on tourism for it’s business, but there are enough attractions, events to go to, sights to see and things to do to keep everyone happy.
Although in terms of sport, they host a range of activities and even some UK and International events for things like white water Slalom canoeing and kayaking. At Tower Fields that overlooks the town of Llangollen, the football, the rugby union and cricket teams hold matches there as well. In the Southern part of the town where the Thermals rise, it’s a favourite with paragliders, and mountain biker enjoy the hills.
It was last Friday when I and my cousin Lianne decided to spend a great weekend at Llangollen. I love the fresh air and the nature, it is truly rejuvenating. The perfect place to relax for overly worked people like us. But before we went for a vacation, I made sure to meet the SEO expert from SEO Nottingham company to give the specifications of the new project. Working with them has always been easy and they deliver excellent work on time. As for Lianne, she did her homework in providing clear instructions to Hong Kong Website Design. She outsourced her other projects to them because they are undermanned. She was happy to find this service provider for her company; according to her former business partner they are reliable.
For more than a year of planning at last we were able to make our dream vacation come true, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It took us a few hours to reach our destination. Thanks to my brother Dave who drove us all the way to the train station. He used his new Ford car from cheap new car. The car has good machine and at the same time affordable. You will have a great deal of savings. We had the time of our lives in Llangollen. We catch up with each other’s lives. Talk about almost anything that has transpired and reminisce our younger years over mouth-watering and healthy dishes.
Among my cousins, Lianne is the closest because we went in the same university and lived at the same flat that we rented at Student Letting Agent Nottingham. Then after graduation, we pursued different careers, I focused on advertising while she opted to work freelance as web designer and then put up her own company. I am happy for her because she becomes successful in her business. She has her own house now and she suggested that I search prospective houses in quick sale andquick house sale .As for the loan she recommended home loans with bad credit and low rate loan durham. According to her these two have good programs and reputation in housing loans. I’m thankful for her tips since I’m really planning to buy my own house in the near future. I’m amazed that Lianne has grown to become a responsible adult because she was so playful back then.
I’m very comfortable sharing my stories with her even to the most absurd ones because she is a good listener and she is also open to me. She shared me her plan to buy a Mercedes by next month and she browsed mercedes deals to learn more about the features of the latest Mercedes cars. This way, she could decide well which Mercedes car she would buy. Having a one on one talk with her has always been a breeze. I have fun and learn so much from her every time we talk. How I wish that we could have this kind of vacation often.
When we were about to sleep she offered me this herbal colon cleanse drink, she said it made her feel healthy and her skin glow. Well, it shows that’s why immediately took it and asked her if she could give me an extra bottle. Lucky me she had an extra drink.
We enjoyed the following day trekking, eating and exploring the place, it’s really heaven on earth. I am looking forward for another vacation there.
We went home on Sunday night. I was somewhat tired but happy. I decided to stay at my parents’ home for a week. When I arrived, I saw my mom gift wrapping the Breitling Colt watch that she will give to my dad on his birthday. I helped her in choosing that watch; my dad will surely like it. It’s in between casual and formal.
When I went to kitchenette, I noticed the new sink; its material is good and elegant. My mom said it’s a Franke Maris sink which she bought at Villeroy and Boch sinks. I really like it. I told my mom that I will buy the same sink once I have my own home. She asked me to check out houses in buy to let property because according to her my older sister saw her nice house there at a great price. Wow, I’ve got enough advises about buying a house. I chatted with her for some time, asked how she is doing and other similar things. Before I finally went to bed, I gave her a bag of toys and baby’s clothes that I bought from baby deals online. I requested her to give them to my nephews and nieces when they drop by since I don’t really know when I can make time again to do all those things.
