Mal at Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula

These are the places that make us  

Whether it's the place you fell in love, somewhere to escape the bustle of everyday life, or where you go to get closer to nature, we all make special connections with different places. These are the places that make us who we are. For Mal, the Gower Peninsula in Wales has helped him come to terms with a life-changing injury, and make a group of life-long friends along the way. Join Mal and his walking group as they head out, sharing memories, laughter, and lots of singing.
