London Film & Comic Con and Wales (July/August 2016) - Part 2

Hi,

it took me some time (sorry!), but now I've finally sorted out my pictures of the last three places I visited: Kidwelly, Tenby (& St. Catherine's Island) and Laugharne.


Okay, on my third day in Wales I went to Kidwelly, because of the beautiful castle they've got there. And I "found" the first of a few geocaches I managed to get in Wales. I put "found" in quotation marks, because when you simply have to ask for the cache while buying your entry ticket for the castle, it isn't really that much of an effort, is it? *lol* Basically, it's a bit awkward, but the nice shop lady seemed just amused and smiled at me while handing over the big cache box. :D

This was the only piece of furniture they had, but somehow it seemed out of place...

Thankfully, there was this rope, otherwise I probably would've crawled up and down. *lol*

From the very top to the bottom... a proper dungeon, only the rats were missing. ;)

I love those warnings! In Germany everything would've just been fenced off. ;)

This is kinda cheesy, but I like it! :D


Tenby/St. Catherine's Island

First, I went to St. Catherine's Island, because I didn't exactly know how much time I had, and you can only visit the island at low tide.

There was a lovely lady telling us about the history of the place and how it was used in the past. But the most interesting fact for me certainly was that it was used as a filming location for series 4 of Sherlock. They filmed there at the end of June this year. If you watch the latest Sherlock trailer (the one they released while San Diego Film & Comic Con) you may recognise parts of it (the hallway, the main door and also the beach below the fort). :D

Laugharne

Another sleepy little town, another castle, and the last place on my list before I had to go back to Germany.

DSC05127x
That's basically the town centre... *lol*

There was something burning in the distance, no idea what it was. ;)

Just because we had so much Merlin last time... *lol*

I then took the Dylan Thomas Birthday Walk, I admit, mainly because of a promising geocache, but it was also a lovely walk around Laugharne. :)

This is where I found the cache. A stunning view, isn't it?

DSC05168x
And I always love the Brit's definition of a public footpath! *lol*

Honestly, I really do love these walks, when you never know if you'll get there in the end... or not. ;)
And you have to admit, the views are really something. :)

Back in civilisation... sort of.

And with a last picture of Laugharne castle I'll end my picture report. :) There'll be more... next year... I'm sure of it. :D

I hope you've enjoyed the pictures, and if there're any questions, just ask away. ;)
