Shwmae Alison, Ti’n iawn? Dw i’n edrych ymlaen i gweld dy blog o’r Wladfa.
Hi Alison, I am looking forward to seeing your blog from Patagonia. I enjoyed your video from la Tasca in Cardiff so between the two languages you’ll be fine. Querio hablar español tambien. I know you are going to have a wonderful time …so enjoy and let´s hear all about it. Pob hwyl. Menna

Hope you both have a wonderful time, Alison! Look forward to following your exploits. :slight_smile:

What Jon T says.
Mwynhewch!
Are you going to be conversing in Spanish or Welsh? :smile:

Both, I’d assume.

Ceidi hwyl

We’ll be “using” both, and also English (loud and slow of course!), and gesticulations! But just in case we are not understood, we have a guide from Teithiau Tango to help with communication and travel.

Helo Alison,
Shw mae heddiw? Gobeithio ti’n iawn.
I recall that you told us about your intended trip to Patagonia. I managed to find your blog just recently and enjoyed it very much. Thank you. Did you manage to post any photos by any chance …if so where would I find them, please?

No, sorry! I never did post them! However, if you are in Cardiff you are welcome to see them. When I have a little more time (in about a month I hope!) maybe I should try to make them accessible by invitation, but at the moment they wouldn’t be of much interest as they have no titles!

Patagonia is well worth a visit - especially if you have any connection with Wales or geology. We concentrated merely on the Welsh connection, but a geologist friend went much farther south to experience the unique geology and was bowled over by it.

Shwmae, Since last we spoke we are all set to visit Ariannin/Y Wladfa /Brazil, leaving next week. Will be able to celebrate Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant out there so really looking forward to it. Hopefully will also get a chance to say a few words in both Welsh and Spanish. Of course it is important from our Welsh perspective and also from the Geological pont of view - the Museum will be very interesting I’m sure. Matthew Rhys’ book which I picked up at the Eisteddfod last year, had been an inspiration. Thank heavens for digital cameras I say, couldn’t ppossibly wait for films to be developed! Pob Hwyl,

Have just returned from 3 weeks in South America, Y Wladfa and Rio de Janeiro. We have had the most unforgettable experience of a lifetime. Seeing incredible scenery, meeting wonderful, friendly people, enjoying good food and company. Diolch yn fawr SSIW and Teithiau Tango.

Oops! I forgot to mention, we also met this fellow en route to Gaiman. He hasn’t been named yet but is the largest dinosaur to be discovered in the known world.
