Conwy & Llandudno: A Tranquil Stroll in North Wales

The turquoise waters, sun-kissed sand, secluded shorelines, little stalls selling seashells, and plates of delicious seafood have made me feel rejoiced since I was just a kid. After an exciting hike in Mount Snowdon, we decided to seize our another day in North Wales to the fullest. To my delight, Conwy and Llandudno all reminded me of those carefree, sunny childhood days on the beach.

Being a voracious reader, smile creeps across my face when I realise how much Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales have enriched my childhood years. Even up to now, his magical stories never fails to delight, enchant and amaze us, and Copenhagen becomes a city where his writing inspiration flourished, and where he called it home.
