Welcome to Wales! Croeso i Cymru! LukeTravels.com™ Site

The geology and geography of Wales are distinctive, offering everything from rugged mountain ranges to rolling upland pastures. Dozens of restaurants across the country provide wonderful examples of Welsh cuisine, ranging from cawl (soup) and laverbread to succulent, traditional Welsh lamb. The romantic and violent past of the country can be seen and sensed in its majestic castles, usually built by Norman invaders to keep the warlike Welsh at bay, and in the remnants of the industrial revolution. Despite the invasions Wales has endured, the country has never lost its essential Welshness. To be born Welsh is to be imbued with a love of culture and tolerance. The welcome of Wales is different from any other part of the world. Unique in its acceptance, unique in its history and culture, Wales has to be experienced to be believed. And once experienced it will never be forgotten.
