I'm 63 yrs old and this is my first trip in many decades (and the trip I took long ago I was part of a group of young people and things were organized for us), and I would like people's experience/opinions about the feasibility of traveling from Manchester to Caernarvon by public transport with the following timeline:
Plane is arriving at approx 7 AM local Manchester time (will feel like 1 or 2 AM to me).
Then my plan is to travel by public transport (which seems from google directions like it would take almost 5 hrs) to Caernarvon.
So guessing realistically will be in Caernarvon at 1 PM local time (feeling like 7 or 8 AM my body time).
Earliest check-in for the hostel I have a reservation at in Caernarvon is 2 PM.
I doubt I'll be able to sleep on the plane, maybe I'll be able to snooze an hour.
So how do people do this? Is there any affordable way/place to take a nap in Manchester from approx 8 AM - Noon?
Or do people stay awake easily from all the excitement of arriving and being in another country?
