Faces of Wales

Compared to its neighbours England and Scotland, Wales is still largely an undiscovered gem of a travel destination. Predominantly rural, the landscape of Wales is made up of lush green valleys, dramatic mountains and enchanting coasts, dotted with unexpected ruins and castles. The country is also famous for its mountain ranges- Brecon Becons and Snowdonia, both remarkably different, yet identical in its ability to steal your breath away.

I got around the country entirely by public transport, dismissing the notion that this is a place that can be explored only by car. Here are all the places I have been in Wales, in chronological order.
