This is the biggest group of words that we have. Those words haven't got a certain group, so we join all these things.

When we love books we say "Voy a escribir un fan fic". This story isn't original but it is an invented story using the characters of that book. We make our own story using elements that are already created.

We want to travel, we catch the car and see traffic signs like "stop"

For example: breakdance, street dance or funky (music style) are in our lives everyday...

English is every where even out of English-speaking countries


In Spanish there're many words from English language. We often use it to talk about computing. We say: "Estoy aburrido, voy a jugar a la Gameboy" or "Para hacer un wallpaper necesito renders." When we're sitting in sofa and we want to watch some film, usually we'll say: "Pon un DVD o un video."

When we talk about computing we use words like Megabit, Giga... They're from English

Castle & King Arthur Route


Cardiff had a strategic importance between the Normand’s war and the Wales people who had controlled the high land of the country, that is why Cardiff shows off having the biggest concentration of castles in the world.

The second most important castle is the Castell Coch. It is in the Tongwynlais Forest.
Cardiff has got the remains of Twmpath Castle, Bishop’ Palace and the ST. Fagans Castle while Wthitchurch Castle has been rebuilt.

King Arthur route

The best option is to go by the coast to Pembrokeshire region. Here you can visit two ancient menhirs called King Arthur’s Sons. On the way, you will see Swansea bay. The next stage will take us to Carmarthen, where it is said that Merlin was born.

In the north we’ll see Snowdonia, the legend tells that King Arthur is buried here. Search the Dinas Bran’s remains in the Llangollen slope because some theories indicate that the Sant Grial was hidden there.

Welsh Food


Most of Welsh Food it’s made by local ingredients.
The lamb is so popular here. Wales is also known by its sheep and lambs farms and it has a direct relation with its cuisine. The veal and bovine is also important in here, above all in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.

Some traditional dishes are Welsh cakes (small cooked cakes), crempogs (Pancake), Bara Brith (sweet bread with raisin), cawl (stew of lamb and sometimes leeks), Laverbread and toasted bread with melted cheese.

Wales also produce thin cheese, including Caerphilly and Fenni, Llanboidy, Red Devil and cheese of black bomber.

In Wales there’re more than twenty vineyard farm and some cities produce beer. Most of vineyards settled on 70’s but the older date from XIX century.

Laverbread Cawl

Crempogs Bara Brith

Welsh food is stranger and more original than Spanish food. We can see in Welsh food predominate vegetables and healthy ingredients.
