I have been to Wales. It rained. BUT…I did finally get to visit Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the spot boasting the longest place name in Europe.
Llanfair P.G. translates as ST MARYS CHURCH IN THE HOLE OF THE WHITE HAZEL NEAR TO THE RAPID WHIRLPOOL OF LLANTYSILIO OF THE RED CAVE. Ace-ly, we had the train station to ourselves because the coach loads of tourists only seemed to bother photographing the gift shop.
As you are no doubt wondering, according to Wikipedia the very longest place name in an English-speaking country is in New Zealand and it’s called:
The Maori translates as THE SUMMIT WHERE TAMATEA, THE MAN WITH THE BIG KNEES, THE CLIMBER OF MOUNTAINS, THE LAND-SWALLOWER WHO TRAVELLED ABOUT, PLAYED HIS NOSE FLUTE TO HIS LOVED ONE.
I think you will agree this is quite something.
