Photo Essay : Northern Wales
Last November I had the pleasure of visiting Northern Wales as a guest of Visit Wales. I had never been to Wales before and it wasn’t high on my list of places to visit. It is so often overshadowed by England that it doesn’t usually get the attention it deserves. As you can see from my photos, I found Wales to be a pleasantly surprising place with its own rich language, culture and landscape. I visited two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Northern Wales: Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal and The Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Gwynedd. You can see photos of both below.
You will also notice the sign at the train station in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch. My guide for the area could pronounce it flawlessly in Welsh!
