'The biggest, boldest mountains in Wales and England are to be found here in the Snowdonia National Park. There’s also a long coastline of sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs and glorious estuaries, which along the Llŷn Peninsula is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. - Source
That;s a brief introduction about Snowdonia. Very intriguing..isn't it? ;)
So we been there from last 23rd-25th of December. It was a treat for our 6th wedding anniversary. (Thank you Darling Xoxo :))
We safely arrived at Bangor travelodge after 7 hrs being on the road. It's supposed to be 5 hrs from London but there was massive traffic on motorway due to Christmas. We stopped at Service twice for eat, prayer and short relaxation. It was very tiring journey but the kids were at their best behavior even though lil Iris was feverish that day. When we reached the travelodge, it was already dark. As soon as we were checked in, we found our way to the room and threw ourselves immediately on the plushy bed! It's good to get lie down. After washed ourselves, prayed, ate, all of us went to Lala land. :)
|See Zafri was also delighted to be on the bed :D|
|Alg Zahin mmg sayang adik Zafri :)|
|Iris demam2 pun mcm2 akal dia ada. Main mug la itu la :)|
|Dah besar tapi still manja lg dgn babah. Duduk ats riba babah lg ni ;)|
On the very next day, we just waited until everybody was wide awaked and ready to explore Snowdonia. No planned tentatives, no pressures since we were on our own. It's a family trip so we just wanna have fun. ;) I think we went out almost at 11 in the morning, we didnt know where to head. Luckily, i managed to grab a pamphlete at the receptionist last night so we just depended on it. Hubby said that he wanted to bring us to Cardigan bay so i said that i would love to go there! hhehe. On the way there, Masya Allah the view was so beautiful and beyond our imagination. Subhanallah, cantik sgtt!!!

And the first day had gone without going to Cardigan bay. :p But for hubby, he was already satisfied get to see all the breathtaking view at Snowdonia National Park. :) Since it is Winter now, it gets darken as early as at 4pm. We had missed Snowdonia Mountain Railway as well, they close their service in this season. :( Hubby kata Issokay ada rezeki boleh pegi lg, ^_^
Just before we went back to travelodge we managed to stopped by at Tesco at Porthmadog to pray and buy Iris's winter coat (bubbles) as hers were dirty after she had puked all over it. Huhu kesian anak ummi tp walau macam manapon Iris tetap sporting. Alg Zahin n adik Zafri pon good, sume good! So anniversary tahun depan bley ikut ummi and babah lg. hehehe. (mcm la bley tgl..;p)
BTW, i dont think i will update on the second day coz it was Christmas and many places were closed due to it. So that day we just visited castles but it just from the outside before we headed to Chester. So kiranya ada pro n cons nya pegi bercuti time Krismas. ;D Kene plan baik2 dan tempah travelodge awal2 serta bawa homemade food untuk lebih jimat. Bukan nak cheapskate tp kt sini kdg lain tempat susah nk cari makanan halal. Kalau ada pon mahal atau pon tak sesuai dgn selera kita ank beranak.
Ok have a nice day. Wassalam.
