Welcome along.....I’m not from Wales but there is plenty to see near Aberdare dependant on your transport situation.

If caving interests you there’s a caving club in Swansea.
Thanks transport is my issue atm that's why I'm hoping to find some friends in the area I'll be moving to merthyr soon so might be more local in walking distance to explore
