This translation sort of implies that the snails were eaten on the way to France, not that the speaker habitually ate them when he was there. If that is not the intention of the Welsh, would a better translation be "when I went to France?"

Yes, this is a poor sentence both grammatically and in terms of national stereotypes, now deleted.

I hadn't thought about the stereotype, but I guess you're right.
