    Welsh language

    Flag of  Wales

    About a quarter of the Welsh population still speak the ancient Celtic language Welsh, which is not an English dialect. To promote the Welsh language, most roadsigns are bilingual in Wales: English and Welsh.
    When visiting a foreign country, it is always nice and helpful to speak at least a few words in the local language. So here are a few useful phrases in Welsh:

    Cymru = Wales
    Shw mae = Hello
    Bore da = Good morning
    Dydd da = Good day
    Hwyl = Bye
    Diolch = Thanks

    For many locals the pubs are their second home and a perfect place for conversation. British Pubs usually don't have a waiter service. You have to go to the bar to buy your drinks and to pay immediately after your order. The beers for sale are either on draught (on tap), in bottles or cans. Famous types of british Beer are: Ale, Mild, Bitter and Stout.

    Fish and Chips

    Britain's most popular hot take away meal is Fish and Chips. This tasty combination is usually eaten with salt and vinegar; in Scotland sometimes with a special brown sauce. The most popular fish is Cod, followed by Haddock and Plaice. Prices are about 1 GBP for the chips and about 2,50 GBP for the fish.

    Tenby was granted a new lifeboat station some time ago, this was constructed right next to the old one which was first established in 1852 and is a Grade II listed building so could not be demolished. As luck would have it a lucrative businessman and his Wife from Cardiff bought the old lifeboat station which would otherwise have gotten into a state of disrepair and crumbled into the sea. They decided to create a swanky, rather unique holiday home with views like no other & their very own slipway to house their speedboat. The regeneration of the lifeboat station was showcased on the Channel 4 television programme 'Grand Designs'. They followed the project step by step as the delapidated building was rescued and transformed into a great living space. You can read more about it here.
