Warrick Castle is still my favourite castle in Britian , although it has become more touristy and I feel lost a little of its charm.
Now into our 2nd week, departing Britian and heading into Wales. The Welsh country side is stunning, wide open spaces, rolling green hills, and Welch hospitality. We now have a more detailed map, a gift from my husband's cousin, who felt that we required a little more assistance negotiating Wales, smaller A road (which is smaller than a motorway), soon we would be traveling on B roads which are more like Sydney local streets, than C roads which are narrow lanes, with enough space for only one car, and apparently there are many C roads in Wales, so I am sure this will provide us with some interesting adventures, and loosing our way.
Our first stop in Wales was Carmarthen Merlin's town named after the famous Wizard of King Arthur who was born and brought up in Carmarthen. It is said that he lived on Merlin's Hill in Abergwili although nobody can find the cave he is supposed to have lived in.
Carmarthen is a country town situated on the River Towy which still has Coracle fisherman and lays claim to being the oldest town in Wales with a combined population of 14,000.
