Hiraeth – Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

This is a lovely tongue twister for all you logophiles out there! The wonderful llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (known as Llanfair PG to us locals).

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?
