Someone gave an unfavorable review to the digital download version of this program, complaining of generic footage and a lack of guidance. While I respect the opinion of a resident of this beautiful country, I want to explain why I liked it. Since there is little specific information provided about this program, I’m going to be fairly comprehensive in describing the locations.

This is NOT a travel video or a showcase of Welsh culture or day-to-day life. Yet I fail to see why those are mandatory requirements for similar programs. The concept of nature videos is not new. Back in the 1980s with the advent of the VCR, the idea was thriving, and many of them did exactly what this one does: point and shoot at random (but lovely) locations and intersperse a pinch of music now and then. If you like instrumental nature videos or lots of landscape shots, this will be a superb addition to your collection. It isn’t flashy, but it is one of the only motion picture glimpses some of us will ever see of this fine land (and you can only watch the Rick Steves version so many times). There is no narration, on-screen host, or trivia tidbit to be found – and that suits me just fine. My suggestion to the 1-star reviewer is to go on a day trip in his own country sometime, and maybe some of the locations will feel less random afterwards! Furthermore, I would remind him that some rural areas the world over are exactly the things he complains about: rainy green hills and sheep. It’s a way of life, not just an idea for a reenactment village.

The program opens with a little bit of simple solo harp music playing over the ocean sounds and sights of Pembrokeshire. It then moves on to a few shots of castle ruins (and the gorgeous green landscapes that go with the territory).

Wales is not as well-known in America as Ireland or Scotland, but this video will prove a striking revelation to those unfamiliar with "Cymru" (as the local inhabitants refer to their homeland). "A Journey Through Wales" is brimming over with beautiful images, and depicts a land of utter enchantment and scenic variety -- mountains, beaches, forests, castles -- like something out of a fairy tale or fantasy epic.

A pleasant (albeit synthesized) sound track of Welsh traditionals accompanies the scenery, resulting in a captivating and immersive experience. It is perhaps not recommended for people with short attention spans or who need things spelled out for them, but for those seeking a relaxing, soothing "journey" through a land of exquisite beauty, this video delivers in spades. Hopefully the producers of this video will continue this series, with similar journeys to other faraway lands.
