After our excursion up the mountain, the three of us set out for Conwy, a little village by the sea with many, many little shops filled with curiosas and maps and souvenirs.

By then we were feeling a bit peckish and looked for a good place to rest our feet. Anna's Tea Rooms was wonderful, and we ordered the soup and sandwich. My sandwich was feta cheese and cranberry, a combination I can wholeheartedly recommend, should you ever be in the area. And since I was in England, I also ordered a cream tea which was unsurprisingly delicious. Francis, our resident Englishman, helped me polish off the pot and ate one of my fruit scones.

All in all, we had a splendid time. Eventually Natalie and I ducked into a souvenir shop and we each bought a map of the shipwrecks off the Welsh coast. It will go nicely with the other maps in my flat in Singapore.
