what you should know before going to Wales:1. Vowels are optional in the Welsh alphabet, so don't expect to be able to pronounce anything.
2. Don't be surprised to discover ancient castles or ruins around every corner. No, really, it's totally normal.
3. The mountains in Wales have the ability to render you speechless and weak in the knees. Safety measures must be taken.
Last month, Jess + her mum + I escaped to the adorable country of Wales for a few days. We stayed in the cutest little cottage in the small village of Conwy and spent our time exploring castles, climbing mountains, and sipping coffee. This was my first time to Wales, and oh me oh my, it stole my heart. For one thing, I love mountains already (Colorado hollaaaa), but Welsh mountains are certainly something to behold. Wow. When we weren't on a mountain, we were having fish + chips by the sea and walking the castle walls and making friends with a sweet lady who worked in a bakery. We found colorful streets and hidden waterfalls and fairy forests and ancient ruins. In the evenings, we snuggled in our cottage and watched Jane Eyre and had tea and sweets by the fire.
Wales, you were lovely and I miss you.
