hehe yeh, imagine having your Welsh travel / language guide in your hand, and you need to ask....

where is the "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch"  please?   :lol:



Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, a railway station on the island of Anglesey in Wales, is the longest place name in the Welsh language. At 51 letters in the Welsh alphabet, the name can be translated as "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave".

That was the first Welsh word my dad ever taught me. One of the very few words he remembers!

Apparently you can buy a conversion kit for playing Welsh scrabble. It's just a bag full of the letter "L".

That's pretty funny. I've always wanted to visit Wales.
