Wales: Chepstow, Caerphilly and Aberystwyth Castles

After we left Caerleon we backtracked west a bit to see Chepstow Castle. The hotel manager at The Roman Lodge in Caerleon had given us a list of his favorite Welsh castle’s and Chepstow was a “must see” in his opinion.

So.. I have an obsession with biscuits and gravy smothered in hot sauce. Usually the only place that can fill this craving is Cup and Saucer in Portland, Oregon. Mostly because I’m vegetarian and gravy without sausage is a rarity anywhere else.  Coming to Spokane I didn’t really consider this problem and when I started to get…
