Hello and Welcome!

Hi! My name’s Ginnie and welcome to my journal! This is my first foray into blog writing but am hoping that my love of Wales will shine through and infect you all with the urge to discover for yourselves all my adopted country has to offer!
A little bit about me first…. Born and raised in England, I have always had links to Wales with visits to family on the North Coast and listening to my Mum's many stories of idyllic summer holidays spent on Anglesey when she was a girl.
When it came to choosing a university, I felt at home right away at Trinity College Carmarthen and had a fantastic three years studying, discovering West Wales and last but not least, meeting my future husband, a native of the valleys of South Wales.
We are now happily settled in Mid Wales with a little girl, who has just started at our village school, and a very soft dog who loves nothing more than getting out and about in the glorious Welsh countryside. Working for Wales Holidays for nearly 14 years has been a joy and now having the opportunity of being able to use my experiences and interests to help people get even more out of their holidays and trips to this beautiful country, or just even to have a bit of a laugh at my exploits, is just great.
I am eager for my friends and colleagues to join me in this new venture and am sure they will have plenty to contribute on a wide variety of interesting topics. The world of social media can be wonderful thing so please do get involved! I would love to hear from you about your own experiences of Wales and any suggestions for blogging ideas or places to visit would be gratefully received. I will be looking out for your comments and will always respond.
I will be updating my journal with blog posts regularly, so stay tuned, follow Wales Holidays on Facebook and Twitter for more information and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
