It pays to be nosey.

Standing in the queue at check-in at Innsbruck airport I detected a Welsh lilt ahead. When dad decided daughter needed some baggage-handling instruction he flipped into Welsh. A seasoned campaigner like myself needed no further excuse and pleasant chat was had. On the plane the poor soul got sat next to me and we chatted some more. Then a couple of heads bobbed up from the row in front and we found two more Welsh speakers. Yay!

A fi, hefyd ! Nes i fynd i Llundain yn gwisgo fy "Wyt ti'n siarad Cymraeg " badge yr wythnos 'ma. Mae pobl yn gofyn yn aml "what's it mean ? ". So, I found there are 2 Welsh speakers at the V and A, and other interesting conversations. Wedyn, amser brecwast, yn y gwesty, drwy lwc, on i 'n eistedd yn ymyl Cymraes Cymraeg whose parents were well known Welsh poets. Chat,chat,chat...sgwrs,sgwrs,sgwrs.
