Bucket List Travels has now gone live and I’m one of their travel experts.
My writer profile is here.
The travel site, which curates content for bucket list experiences by local experts, has launched with guides from Sydney to Straford-upon-Avon.
I’ve drawn on my local-knowledge expertise as a travel writer and tourist guide to write two of the guides from my home patch in the Northwest of England and North Wales.
Here’s a taster of the Snowdonia text:
The anchor point is Mount Snowdon (Eryri in Welsh), Wales’ highest peak at 3,000ft. The mountain Mecca is the small, Alpine-style town of Llanberis but other honeypot hubs offer alternative takes on the park. The Victorian resort town of Betws-y-Coed is the primary base for many visitors, its high street packed with outdoors shops and food-fuel cafes. Given the bucolic setting, you can see why artists and Romantic writers were first drawn here.
Timely, given that the Snowdonia National Park Authority recently voted to use the Welsh names Yr Wyddfa and Eryri rather than Snowdon and Snowdonia.
The decision that Wales’ highest mountain will be referred to by its Welsh name, rather than the English equivalent, came after a petition of 5,000 people called for change.
