How green is your valley in Wales? W ANT an unbelievable change of pace? Just step across the border from England and meet the other-world of Wales. See the stark grandeur, feel the strength and power of this rugged landscape-the mountain masses, the wildly rushing streams alive with salmon and trout, the fresh, clean villages with their stone-walled, slate-roofed houses. Look out on broad valleys of shining green, on steep, emerald hillsides dot ted with sheep. Stand atop Snowdon Mountain, legend ary resting place of King Arthur's spirit and highest peak in all of Wales and England. Kick a cloud aside and look down on your valley-now a distant hazy blue. Visit a picturesque coast town like Aberdovey where, they say, one can hear the tolling of bells from a city buried under the sea. Marvel at the medieval for tress city of Conway with its castle built by Edward I, seven centuries ago. Above all, hear the world's love liest folk music, the voices of Welsh miners rising in rich harmony. The valleys echo with their hymns. How green, always, will be your memories of Wales! A totally different, totally wonderful country-and only one part of Britain. See your Travel Agent and Come to Britain.
