Wales is a beautiful part of the British Isles and its compact size means you can see a lot in a short time. Two weeks means you can see the best of the country.
Start in the capital, Cardiff, and spend a few days exploring the amazing architecture, cultural events and famous nightlife before heading off to Blaenafon to visit the Big Pit mining museum and the ruins of the Ironworks. Here you will get an idea of the industrial history of Wales before appreciating the natural attractions of the beaches on the Gower peninsula. Take a hike along the steep cliffs and feel the wind in your face.
From here, head along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path on the St Davids peninsula, home to some outstanding coastline, and then head inland to Snowdonia. Climb Snowdon to look down over the countryside around, ride the famous narrow-gauge railways and explore the old slate mines, some of which have been turned into tourist attractions.
For a change of scenery, check out Portmeirion on the coast. This whimsical village sits right on the water and features a whole host of beautiful buildings in the Italianate style. More imposing architecture awaits at Conwy and Llandudno, a domineering castle best viewed from the seaside town.
Finish up at Llangollen, with its canal aqueduct, and visit the lakeside town of Bala for great cycling, watersports and even go-karting.

Online shopping continues to soar in popularity with more people choosing to browse an entire catalogue of options instead of making a trip to the store. It makes sense because people are busy and sometimes don’t have time to spend hours browsing a store only to buy a few outfits. When shopping online, people can buy items sporadically or fill up carts and purchase them later. Online shopping is now more than just searching on the web, it’s also swiping through an app. Apps make it easier than ever to keep up with sales, new items and trends.
With the early days of spring behind us, the busy days of summer festivals and events will be here before you know it. Most festival favorites, like Bonnaroo, Firefly, Coachella, Lollapalooza, CMA Music Festival and Austin City Limits, have lineups already announced, early-bird pricing expired and tickets mostly sold out or close to it, but, don’t worry, there are far more unique events taking place all over the world. If not this year, at least keep them on your radar for next.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
