So, Wales is officially open for travel again after the latest lockdown. Hooray! Continued social distancing measures do not prevent you from travelling to any of our featured Explore places. However, they may possibly still prevent you staying in some of our featured places to Sleep, as some of these are of the smaller, quirkier variety (we will add a Covid-19 update at the end if they do). And they could well still prevent you from indulging in a few of our featured Eat and Drink places: whilst many of these did reopen as of August 3rd, a lot just have not been able to, or have only been able to in part (again, we will add a Covid-19 update at the end if there are any current restrictions) .
But the good news is, it is definitely time to start discovering undiscovered Wales with us again – albeit with sensitivity and caution in what is still a difficult time for many people and communities here.
We are taking special care, too, to ensure it is only places that still offer a standout experience for our readers and potential visitors/guests that get featured.
As if, as a result of the lockdown or its effects, any of the info in our features or in the ‘At a glance’ sections at the end of ‘Explore’, ‘Eat & Drink’ and ‘Sleep’ features changes, we’ll put a Covid-19 update at the end too.
And now the even-better news. There are plenty of sections on our site you can enjoy as you normally would, even in these challenging times and even if some of you cannot physically travel to Wales right now. Whet your taste buds with our Recipe Corner where those in-the-know in Wales share with you their favourite recipes with Welsh ingredients, Welsh heritage and Welsh inventiveness at their heart and soul – for you to try making at home! Or have more foodie fun with our Great Welsh Food-offs (where producers of a particular food or drink from across Wales put forward their finest products to face off in a taste-off). Learn more about the people who live here and what they do to make Wales an even better place than it would have been otherwise with our fabulous Voices of Wales area. Or immerse yourself in our Slow Reads area for journalistic features on intangible but invaluable insights into Wales’ culture, history, place in the world today – and any other strange but beautiful stories that seem apt.
