And although they've bored you to tears before now, you'll almost definitly end up having one perform at your wedding.

5. All of your friends having the exact same name.

#growingupwelsh most of your friends are called David so they all get nicknames, big Dave, red car Dave, work David, bro David, Dave-Dave..

6. Getting really good at hazard perception because you learnt to drive on country roads.

You basically never drove at more than 30mph because you knew there was always a sheep or a horse right around the corner.

11. Being really surprised when you left Wales and found out that other people pay for their prescriptions.

Paying for prescriptions is horrible. Wales have got one thing right with their free prescription service.

13. All cultural events happening in Cardiff and no where else in Wales.
