So the next stop on our Wales road trip was a couple of hours in a little village called Portmeirion. This little village stands out as it's an Italianate private village by the coast of mid Wales. It's apparently the brainchild of an architect called Clough Williams-Ellis who had a dream to build a village that would ehance it's surroundings rather than blend in with them! It's certainly an eye-catching place to be, as the other millions of tourists around will tell you (there were far too many of them, patience was definately the key to getting a decent photo). You wouldn't know it from my photos but it was a very colourful place... it's also still lived in, which is suprising with the amount of tourists that were trotting around in wanderment!
