Hiraeth – Menai Straits

Beautiful Wales.  I must say that having this as your view while you tuck into a light supper of Welsh mackerel pate is worth getting yourself to Anglesey for.  Being so far West the summer evenings stretch on forever.

Wales is a land of incredible wild beauty, majestic landscape and more than a sprinkling of magic.  It is the sort of place that it is almost impossible to leave.

If you listen carefully you will often hear many a Welsh man (and woman) whisper of something know as Hiraeth. It has no direct English translation but is sort of like a longing, nostalgia and wistful yearning for Wales.   This series is my own way of embracing my feelings of hiraeth and sharing just a little bit of my magical Wales with you.

If you feel your own hiraeth welling up inside and fancy a bit of Wales on your walls then why not pop on over to my Etsy shop to see what you can find?
