Photo Friday: W is for ‘Wales’
Where do you come from?
I may be a Kiwi born and bred, but my grandparents came from Wales and Scotland. I love Scotland, but finding a birth certificate for my visa was going to be easier going through the Welsh grandparent whom I never knew (I didn’t know any of them, but I knew which town this one came from). Having achieved my ancestry visa for the UK based on my Welsh heritage, back in 2011 I wanted to find out more about the place my grandfather was born in: Swansea.
Many people (as usual) told me Swansea wasn’t a great place, but I’m glad I checked it out for myself. While I was there Cardiff and the Mumbles were also on the itinerary, giving me a good insight into what Wales was like. Swansea was a quiet but lovely spot. The Mumbles and Gower Peninsula reminded me of the waterfronts in New Zealand. And Cardiff was a nice city with an array of lovely architecture. All in all, Wales was lovely, friendly and beautiful.
Without further ado…
Mumbles, Gower Peninsula
Excuse the quality of photography in this post, it was a mix from my snapshot camera and my DSLR.
