WALES

Wales is a beautiful country in the United Kingdom. It is a country full of history, character, and culture. There is something gorgeous to see everywhere you look from fascinating castles, snow-capped mountains, spectacular waterfalls, stunning beaches, and breathtaking coastlines. We had the opportunity to travel to North Wales for a day when we were in Chester, England for our friend Katie and Bobby's wedding. We are so excited to share some of our favorite Wales places to go and things to see!
