A Little trip away to Conwy

To celebrate our Birthdays and Anniversary Jamie and I spent a couple of nights away in Conwy.
(I am now 26- I have just realised I only have 3 years left for my 30 before 30 challenge... it may be a long shot to try to complete every one!)

Conwy is a lovely little walled town in North Wales. 
We are big fans of Conwy and have visited many times, but we have never stayed before.
 We first visited because it has a brilliant castle (Jamie loves castles.)

We rented a little cottage within the walls.   

The aim of our trip was to relax, slow down and have some quality time.
We stayed inside the walls of the town, wandered through the pretty streets, sat in coffee shops, had a couple of lie ins, ate good food and watched films. 

It was lovely.

The port of Conwy is idyllic, with little boats floating in the estuary.

Conwy is famous for its mussels.

Getting away every now and them is essential for us. 
Jamie is in demand thanks to his job as a youth worker for our church. 
It is a really full on but extremely rewarding job. 
But it does mean we don't get to see each other as much as we would like.

Having a few days to just us helps us to reconnect with each other and with God.
