I've just returned home from a few days walking in the Brecon Beacons. This morning I climbed a lovely mountain without encountering (or even seeing in the distannce) one single other walker. As it was a cloudless Sunday morning in the middle of summer I find this remarkable! Try finding an empty mountain in the Lakes today.
It says something (possibly quite sad) about me that I am blogging before I have even unpacked my bags.
While I was out there I did a little research on the Welsh language. Here's what I learned:
That it is it? = Is there anything else I can get you sir?
Have you payed? = Excuse me. Can I see your ticket please? Thanks.
Teas or coffees is it? = Would you like a cup of tea or coffee?
That's it then isn't he? = I agree with what you just said.
It's 2 pound = That will be 2 pounds please. Thanks.
