Wales, Welsh & the Welsh

Tintern Abbey RuinsCroeso! There will be something about all of the above in these entries.

First, Wales and Welsh are Anglo-Saxon words meaning foreign and foreigner. I won’t use them often. I will instead use Cymru (the country), Cymry (the people) and Cymraeg (the language).

My journey to Cymru began with its language, one of the strongest of the six surviving Celtic languages.

I look forward to hearing from you.
