Wales and In the Loop 3.5: Making Connections

In describing the principality, Visit Wales says there are: 3 National Parks; 641 Castles; 6 UNESCO sites; 870 miles of coast path and just 2 hours from London..........

The title says a lot about Wales, but not everything--the Brecon Beacons have just been announced as only one of just five places in the world to be an "international dark sky reserve". (Thanks Amy) Have a look at: http://m.guardian.co.uk/uk/2013/feb/19/brecon-beacons-special-protection-sky

I also received an email announcing the draft programme for "In the Loop" to be held on Shetland from the 31 July to the 02 August, 2013. Ever since this event was first held in 2008, I've really wanted to attend. It is usually held every other year, 2010, 2012 and this year's 3.5 designation may indicate that it's half way to the fourth event. The theme this year is Nordic.
