Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall, WalesDid you know that I’m ‘Winglish’? OK, it's perhaps not a real thing however it is since there are lots of individuals who feel a little bit Welsh and slightly English. Consequently we’re Winglish.

I was produced in The united kingdomt but We moved to Wales whenever I was five. We discovered Welsh in school, my nearest friends are mostly Welsh and I spent my youth examining the depths of Wales.

I understand I’m technically English but In addition feel a loyalty into the Welsh. I adore this stunning nation and when We saw Wales described as ‘the underdog for the UK’ I felt a fierce loyalty to stand up when it comes to underdog. Wales should not become underdog! Wales is gorgeous and mysterious and stunningly beautiful.

Gower, Southern Wales, UKwe now survive the England/Wales edge and I’ve been recently investing more hours exploring Wales.

It took a while to narrow it straight down but listed below are 10 factors why I think you ought to visit Wales.

number 1 Waterfalls

Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall, Wales.

We don’t need to state any longer. Any country with waterfalls such as this must certanly be well worth going to!

number 2 The Beaches

Bara BrithRhossili Bay seashore in Swansea ended up being the very first coastline to-be voted Britain’s Best seashore by Trip Advisor’s Traveller’s solution. I’m in fact going here at the week-end therefore be prepared for my Instagram feed is filled up with beach photos!

number 3 Bara Brith

Nothing beats a cup beverage and a piece of Bara Brith.

number 4 Welsh Castles

Wales may be little but this little country has had over 400 castles. Apparently there are many more castles per head than in virtually any nation in the world. Around 100 of those will always be standing today.

# 5 The language

Conwy CastleWelsh is probably not the most beautiful language on the planet nonetheless it’s quite cool that tiny destination still has its whole own language. If you’re visiting for the first time, don’t stress, no-one else is able to pronounce the spot names both.


Yes, that is a genuine place-name

number 6 The glamping choices

You-all know I’m a giant lover of glamping and Wales features so many unusual glamping options. Wish stay-in a treehouse? No issue. How about a yurt? You can do that also. The Welsh have pretty much every glamping alternative you can easily think of.

#10 Performers

The performers look really quite in Wales. If you’re originating from London, anticipate to be surprised. Once I lived-in London we felt like we required glasses during the night every time I arrived home to Wales.

#11 Snowdonia Nationwide Park

It’s well worth the hike up Snowdon for a view like this. But if you truly can’t be arsed with walking, you can always use the train.
