[personal profile] draigwen posting in [community profile] wales
It occurred to me that I started this community and then never got round to writing an introductory post or anything.

I thought it might be a good idea for me to write a post explaining my connection to Wales, with the hope to spark other people off to do the same!


I'm English by birth, but being from the Midlands it's unsurprising that I spent many summers in North Wales. I fell in love with the country then and so when I was looking for somewhere to go to university Cardiff ended up being my first choice (well, there were other influencing factors such as knowing other people there, and the fact that it was one of the few places that did the degree I wanted to do).

That was close to twelve years ago now, and I've lived in South Wales ever since. About four years ago I finally left student digs in Cardiff, and bought a place just outside Caerphilly. Right now I wouldn't dream of moving away from Wales, I love it here.

I'm a Welsh learner and have been for some years. I haven't yet got the guts to speak in Welsh outside class though!
