Wales, the small country that juts out of the west side of England, is brimming with beauty and should not be overlooked. With miles upon miles of stunning coastline, towering mountains, and quaint villages, Wales is the postcard perfect destination you didn’t know you were missing, and these pictures prove it.

We’ve had the pleasure of visiting Wales twice. The first time we stayed at the Snowdon Ranger YHA, which was the perfect location for visiting Conwy and Portmeirion. Last time we were with my husband’s men’s choir; one of the highlights was walking up to Dolbadarn Castle, which was easily reached from our hotel in Llanberis.

I wish one day I can visit all those places.
