George Borrow

George Borrow is a famous writer among Welsh people because of his book "Wild Wales", where he describes Welsh country and people.In "Wild Wales", Borrow remembers the Galician Land´s End while watching the sea from the northern Welsh coast.

Before moving to Wales, George Borrow wrote these lines about his travel around the Finisterrae:

We had arrived exactly at such a place as in my boyhood I had pictured to myself as the termination of the world, beyond which there was a wild sea, or abyss, or chaos.

I now saw far before me an immense ocean, and below me a long and irregular line of lofty and precipitous coast.Certainly in the whole world there is no bolder coast than the Galegan shore.

George Borrow (1843)
