One of the main reasons why I wanted to go to Wales was to visit Portmeirion, which I had discovered online a while back through Monica’s blog, The Travel Hack. It’s like being in Italy, except you’re in Wales. I found the concept intriguing. The entire village was designed and built by Architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. He loved Italy and was desperate to recreate the atmosphere of Mediterranean villages. It took him 50 years before he finally deemed the village complete. Today thousands of visitors stroll its streets every year. You have to pay to get in of course (£10) but it’s worth every penny.
Have you been to Portmeirion before? What did you think?
