The phrase 'good things come in small packages' may be a cliché, but in the case of Wales it's undeniably true.
I well remember my first time in Wales – a short trip to Cardiff with a fellow Kiwi living in London. We were so impressed with the castle that we took the train to Caerphilly the following day for an extra serving. I returned shortly afterwards to walk the extraordinarily beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path, and I've been back numerous times since and explored most corners of the country. Yet on every visit there's always been another beautiful beach, rugged mountain path or kooky village pub to discover. And, of course, there's always another castle.
