Have a look through here and think of what an American man said to me on a cruise: 

Where are you from?

Wales!

Where's that?

Great Britain!

?? ? OH!   you mean that bit attached to the side of England

Wales

 An  amazing country of mountains and coastline with a  history of coal and slate mining.

                         From the Brecon Beacons in the south to Snowdonia in the north
