Curious About ... Wales Posted on 2/6/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching Share this article: A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film: I love Christine van Blokland’s exuberance and her inquisitive way of looking at the world. As an arts and travel reporter and the host of the Curious Traveler series, Christine travels everywhere in search of answers to the kinds of questions we forget to ask when we outgrow our childlike curiosity. In this episode of Curious Traveler, she finds herself in Wales, where she asks: Why is there a Prince of Wales but a Queen of England? Why are there more castles per capita in Wales than anywhere else in the world? Why is there a castle that looks like it belongs in Constantinople? How do you pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwy- rndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch?
