SO, after thinking we were going to Iceland this August for two weeks and driving the Ring Road and seeing how so many hotels are already booked and how CRAZY EXPENSIVE that country is, we are now, sadly, re-thinking where to go.
I've been all over Europe but never to Wales. We want a cooler, less crowded country (for ex, NOT Italy) since we have to go in August, unfortunately. We absolutely LOVE Ireland and have already been 3 times (just last August) and thought maybe Wales would be something similar? True? We love beautiful landscapes, friendly people, good food and drink, and a relaxing time. We are both in our late 40ties and I thought Wales would be a nice compromise and something still new. (I've been to England, Scotland, Sweden and Denmark already and don't think Norway, Estonia and Finland are worth 10-14 days so I can't think of many other cooler temperature places to visit for us Los Angelenos. ; )
Am I mistaken in thinking that Wales has less tourists than many other European countries in Europe? I’m thinking/hoping it will be more like Ireland but, perhaps, being so close to England, it will be more crowded? Especially in August?
Thanks so much my RS family! You are always so helpful!
