Wales is where my mum studied when she was younger (in Swansea), therefore it became a family holiday destination for us, as we camped out. Admittedly, I hate camping, but it was a beautiful country that I admired a lot. It is also where I celebrated Beach Break festival, until they annoyingly moved it away to a worse location. With a population of 3 million, they do love their castles, with more per square mile than in any other country in the world. While most will visit for Cardiff, or maybe Swansea, one of the best places to visit is actually Snowdonia. They have so much available, especially for adrenaline junkies, including the longest zip wire in Europe. If it wasn’t for my fear of heights I’d be the first person going down there. You also have the amazing Bounce Below, which is a trampoline in a cave floating in the air. This is yet again another which you have to be a little braver than me to do, but it looks incredible. Over in Cardiff, you have to visit the Millennium stadium if you’re a sports fan. It actually has the largest retractable roof of any stadium in the world, while the fans certainly know how to pipe out a song. I mean, this is the country where school kids are pushed to sing in choirs, the country is actually known as ‘the land of the song’.
