So which destination is BBC News at Ten presenter’s most memorable?
Here he talks about his favourite part of Wales, his holiday from hell in a French ski resort and more…
MOST MEMORABLE DESTINATION?
Patagonia in Argentina — I went to visit the Welsh communities there. In the Andes I visited Cwm Hyfryd (‘Beautiful Valley’) — I was struck by the scale of the landscape.
EARLIEST HOLIDAY MEMORY?
Going to Pembrokeshire in the Sixties. We’d stay in Tenby or Saundersfoot, braving the August rain and enjoying candyfloss, sausage rolls and chips. When the sun came out, we’d spend every minute on the beach.
DO YOU GO BACK TO WALES OFTEN?
Yes, most months. My mother lives in Llanelli and I am still in touch with school friends.
FAVOURITE PART (OF WALES)?
Picturesque: Carmarthenshire is Huw’s favourite part of Wales and his home county
My home county of Carmarthenshire, one of the bastions of Welsh-speaking Wales.
HOLIDAY FROM HELL?
Skiing in the French resort of Risoul 20 years ago. Massive queues at the lifts, terrible food and awful accommodation.
We’ll probably end up in Greece or Turkey this summer though I tolerate the heat less easily these days.
I would love to travel by train across India. I’m a real expert on the run from Paddington to Swansea — but the scale of the Indian network is something else.
