Infact I didn't know anything about this amazing place. Port Meirion has something to do with pottery I must look that up, but also is like a mini Disney Land.. Scattered on the Welsh coast are multi coloured cottages with surreal features that make you think you're on an acid trip. Or so I've heard.
Check out this one??! What's weird about it....?
The three windows on the right are painted on! Wooaahhhh. God job I wasn't stoned i'd have probs pulled a whitey. The whole place was like this, it was built by a guy called Sir Clough William- Ellis he bought the village in Wales for 5k in the twenties and year after year came back and built another cottage, inspired by Italy but given his own twist. I reckon this guy was mega lolz ,.
And Ted sure know how to do a press trip, on Thursday we woke and had a tour of the village by our main man Mareick, now this guy got swag. If you're going ask for a personal tour, he gave us all the celeb goss, Jules Holland has actually built a mini Port Meirion in his garden and George Harrison threw his fiftieth birthday here and wasn't allowed a seafront cottage unless he got battered and fell off the edge. I remember all the important bits.
We then went to the dog graveyard. As a cat owner I find this a little biased but whatevs
We put a wishing coin in the tree stump. Apaz you put a coin in the tree trunk and it takes away your chosen ailment, if you steal one you get the coins illness. I was hammering quids in for about half an hour #hypercondriac #cureme #howmanycanido #imlyingitwasjtquidsitwastwentypences
After the amazing tour and it really was amazing we had a spot of afternoon tea and then a little heli ride, as you do, casual.
The afternoon tea on Ted Baker crockery, I mean helllooooo, how much do I need this in my life?
Our evening plan was dinner in their posh restaurant and drinks by an open fire. I was made for this shit!
Alright I'll have the Parmesan and pea drink thing and some mini fried fish.
Black truffle poached chicken breast, morel mushroom cannelloni and steamed asparagus with marjoram
Luckily for one in the group they accepted, wink wink. You know who you are.
