Might as well resurrect the topic! I'm currently near Knighton, right on the border, but I'm from Wolverhampton originally and I've recently spent 10 years in Arizona. Pretty new to Wales, but I absolutely love it here.

Hi all:

Just came across this thread on the team discussion. My parents were a bit "conflicted" as to where they wanted to live; so:
* born in Canada
* moved to Llandudno Junction
* back to Canada
* back to Llandudno Junction and then to Llanwrst
* back to Canada
* then to Dolgarrog by myself as a young adult
* back to Canada "temporarily" for university...27 years ago...

Stuck in Canada because my lovely DH and DS are here, but my heart is DEFINITELY in the Conwy Valley.

Hi everyone. I live in the hills inland from Aberystwyth although I am originally from Scotland - came to Wales via England, Germany, Middle East, Hong Kong, Germany, England - you know the sort of thing! I've lived here longer than anywhere else in my life.

Hope you are all having more success than me!

Hi Gigisparky,
Welcome to the team, lovely to hear from you. Corwen isn't too far from here, about 45 mins inland. I have been there on a few occasions - there is a lovely soup cafe on one of the nearby farms - always very tempting!

I am delighted to find this site. I am living in south Texas, but my grandparents all emigrated to western Canada. My Dad's parents were born and raised in Corwen in north Wales. My grandfather went to Canada, then sent for his sweetheart two years later. They were married in Canada and named their first-born son Berwyn. My mother's Dad was from Monmouth, I think (yes, he was a coal miner). I will have to find out where my maternal grandmother was from.

Dad and I motored around Wales in 1991, visiting relatives. We received a warm welcome and I have such good memories of the trip.

I was born and raised in Canada, but I moved to Texas about 30 years ago. As a child, I could say the full name of Llanfair PG, but I sure can't now.

I'm up in N Wales - Old Colwyn. I can just about see the sea from the bungalow. We moved when Bryn and I both had to retire from teaching due to ill health so a bit earlier than planned, and a lot less money than planned, still we have enough to get by!

My parents live about 20 mins by car away and my cousin around the same. Lovely as we've lived far away in Bucks up to now.

We've got 4 cats, all new this year and it's so lovely to have them around!

Glad you enjoyed your visit, I bet your French friends were impressed. So you have gained 10lbs, disappointing but not the end. Set yourself a goal of how long it will take you to lose the 10lb, 5 weeks sounds good, and reward yourself emoticon

Hi All,

I'm in N Wales too, in Old Colwyn, very close to the sea. It's a lovely place to live when you can't work as there are college courses and other things to do during the day time.

I love the garden too
