Wales in 10 days

We are walking from Conwy to Carmarthon and I’ve been doing the boring job of making little maps of where we are staying each night, to print on a sheet of A4 and take. This is easy to forget but very necessary when the addresses consist of a place and a postcode but no road name, a bit like this one:

09-19

We’ve stayed in places with fewer roads.
