Postcard from Bangor

This postcard was originally sent at Easter 2009!

Once again I've been travelling around North Wales, and this time I went to Bangor. The small, old town is the link between the Welsh mainland and Anglesey. Being a university town, bangor is a bit more multi-cultural than the rest of the villages in the area - however, it is also in a region in which Welsh is still spoken on a daily basis. The old university building looks a bit like Hogwarts, but the university is well-known for medical research.

Next to an old cathedral and a Normad fort high above the Menai Strait, Bangor's main attraction is its Victorian pier. Especially children try their hand at crab-fishing, while others stroll along the pier enjoying some ice cream in the sunshine or scones at the pier tea rooms. Bangor is also a stop on the way from Llandudno towards Holyhead and the Ireland ferry. Places like Caernarfon can also be reached from bangor by bus.
