Travel – Wales/Cardiff

Hi guys, a few weeks ago my flatmate and I when on a spontaneous trip to Cardiff in Wales! She mentioned she was going to go and I haven’t set foot in Wales yet so I thought why not?! It was about a 4 hour bus trip each way (cheapest option). We stayed in a hostel close to the city center and set off exploring.

I’m looking at doing a bunch of weekend roadtrips and jaunts i the New Year, can’t wait to explore more of the UK and Europe in 2016!

Unfortunately as is the norm  in the UK the weather was shit, raining off and on the whole time we were there, but we took our umbrellas and didn’t let it interfere too much! We explored Cardiff Castle and the museum they have there, we wandered around the city center, markets, walked down to the waterfront, checked out another museum and of course stopped for drinks and food often!

It was interesting to see a city in the UK, so close to London but with signs etc in a different language everywhere (as well as english). It seems the Welsh take pride in their history and heritage and rightly so. Cardiff isn’t a huge city so it’s very walkable and you can do all the main sights in a weekend. There were a few day tours but we weren’t there long enough as I had to come back the next day. It was nice to get out of the hustle and bustle of London and see somewhere new!
