Sand & Rock
Snowdonia, Wales – the perfect road trip destination; blissfully British coastline (a.k.a. take your coat, not your bikini), rolling fields of greenery separated by small stone barns and forestry, and mountains, so stunning you might just loose yourself for a moment, in the best way.
We ventured from the coastline of Black Sands beach to the edge of one of Snowdonia’s lakes.
We’ll let you into a little secret: we might have loved every minute of it.
From Coast to Campsite Hyundai KONA Trip
First stop? Lunch, obvs.
Dylan’s Cafe, located in the small coastal town of Ciccieth, was a charming and cosy hide-out; the perfect shelter from the wild wind and rain outside.
Offering a casual British menu with all the classics, and floor to ceiling windows with stunning views of the beach, it was hard to leave.
Black Rock Sand Beach, Porthmadog.
Back in the car, tunes on and adventure around the corner. The weather didn’t stop us driving along Black Rock Sand beach. As the clouds came over we found ourselves huddled in the car, well and truly enjoying the moment. With blankets and books, we were able to escape from our usually busy schedule and simply appreciate the British weather – yes, we said appreciate.
Mount Snowdon, Snowdonia.
As dusk settled, we explored the intricate landscape of Mount Snowdon from the comfort of our Hyundai Kona – although we couldn’t resist climbing half way out the window to capture photographs.
The road was narrow and rocky, but the views were worth it. The lake that sits on the foot of the mountain was completely still and wrapped up in a thick fog.
When we arrived at the camp site, it was finally time to chill, and where better than a private yurt with heated blankets, accompanied by North Face slippers and fairy lights.
When it came to camping, our team was a little mixed in opinion, but one thing we all agreed on was that it was a memorable experience.
Before heading back to Chester we couldn’t resist waking up for sunrise. Armed with a flask of milky Earl Grey tea and our new favourite Rupi Kaur book in hand, slid down from the campsite & may have gotten a little lost on that lake side surrounding by mountain landscape but we couldn’t have asked for a better ending to our adventure.
