Island isolation, Faroe Islands Teacher’s Cottage on Stóra Dímun, the smallest inhabited Faroe Island, gets snapped up fast (bookings for 2020 go live on 1 January).

There are many memorable days that have gone into Wales football folklore and everyone will have their own personal favourite. For some it's Wales' 4-1 thumping of England at Wrexham in 1980; others put beating Italy in front of 74,000 at the Millennium Stadium as number one; more still will always rank the stunning 3-1 Euro triumph over Belgium in Lille as the best of the lot. But for emotion, drama and historic sense of occasion, thousands reckon it's hard to look beyond Bordeaux, June 11, 2016 - the day Wales finally announced themselves on the world stage.

By an extraordinary quirk of fate, it's Slovakia first up again this weekend as Ryan Giggs' new Wales class begin their Euro 2020 campaign with a crunch qualifier in Cardiff. Can it be the … [Read more...] about The story of Wales’ epic Euro 2016 triumph over Slovakia
