[one_half]Snowdonia has been on my list of places to visit for a while. From the pictures I have seen it looked pretty stunning, and it didn’t disappoint. We arrived around lunch time on Friday and decided to have a look around Beddgelert. A traditional, quaint village, Beddgelert is nestled in the valley bellow Snowdon surrounded  with stunning mountain views.[/one_half]

[one_half_last]Phone signal is a rare commodity, and WiFi is scarce around Snowdonia but sometimes a digital detox is necessary when idyllic landscapes are right under your nose.[/one_half_last]

[one_half]With hours before check in, we explored the bustling village, its proximity to Snowdon obviously proving popular with fellow walkers. I soon realised that this popular corner of Wales was going to make it very easy to take beautiful pictures, providing panoramic scenery around every corner. My girlfriend bought us an ice cream each and we set off down a path along the river.[/one_half]

[one_half_last]The village spread out into open fields and foggy peaks to one side and stone cottages meandered along the edge of the river to the other. The characteristically Welsh weather provided an atmospheric skyline across Snowdonia[/one_half_last]

The day after we arrived, we decided it would be a good day to climb Mt. Snowdon. We were in two minds about it but ultimately came to the decision that we would regret not doing it as soon as we left.

We finally made to it the top. It took around 5 hours all together and a lot of aching the next day!
