United Kingdom

Quaint, peculiar, funny: the United Kingdom… our "Wahlheimat".

We actually like it here: the weather (and the food) are not quite as bad as the natives (and the French) make you believe.

Panoramas of Snowdonia

 

(vero;2020-May-31)

The Snowdonia National Park is home to Snowdon, the highest mountain from England and Wales culminating at 1085m and counts many attractive summits. The mountains are a magnet for walkers and Snowdon itself sees a lot of visitors thanks to the Snowdon Mountain Railway which brings tourists from the town of Llanberis right up to the summit. There are a multitude of trails and breathtaking sceneries to be had. Hiking in Snowdonia can be a bit strenuous and the weather not always auspicious which makes the area a demanding territory which should not be taken lightly; the 1953 Everest expedition for example trained there before going off to the Himalayas for the real thing.
