Waen Rhydd Peat Bog near Llanwrtyd Wells|, Llanwrtyd Wells, United Kingdom | Map
The Welsh language is more than words made up from alphabet soup letters—it’s the oldest language in Britain, dating back possibly 4,000 years. Try to learn some Welsh for your trip, even if it’s just numbers (pimp is 5), the word for beer, and a few select simple phrases you might actually use.
You’ve come all this way. You pretty much owe it to yourself to see what it’s like to snorkel in a bog. Ignore any talk of bog monsters, snakes, or the like. Just make sure your hotel room shower has soap for later. You’ll need it.
