4. Drink a Welsh cider.
You might think all cider comes from Somerset or some other place in England. But some very fine, award-winning ciders are made in Wales. Here are just a few of them: Gwynt Y Ddraig, Old Monty Cider, Hallet’s Real Cider, and Apple Country Cider.
5. Read something from a Welsh author.
One of the most famous writers/poets from Wales is Dylan Thomas, but there are other astonishing writers from Wales: Bertrand Russell: “The Problems of Philosophy”; Roald Dahl, “Matilda”, “The Witches”, “Charlie & The Chocolate Factory”; Dick Francis, “Bone Crack”; Bernice Rubens, “The Elected Member”; Ken Follett, “Fall Of Giants”; Owen Sheers, “Resistance”; and Cynan Jones, “The Dig”.
6. Listen to Welsh men’s choir.
The male choral tradition dates back only 100 years and is inextricably linked with the coal and steel industries of Wales, drinking pints in pubs and rugby.
