Love that channel. Especially the missions across Wales.

Also got addicted to Wordle in the last week. Just got todays word on my second go. My first word guess hit 4 green letters. Cool

Yeah, subscribed to that bloke when he first started doing the Wales thing, he's in the middle of a YouTube series trying it again (his 3rd time).

He's also done a Norway(?) attempt and Scotland too.
