    Cardiff Castle

    June 29 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    In Cardiff wollten wir uns das Schloss ansehen, weil es sich innen sehr eindrucksvoll sein soll. Parken ging prima an der Universität. Nach 5 Minuten zu Fuß am Castle angekommen, hatte die Feuerwehr alles abgesperrt. Es fand abends ein Musikfestival statt und entweder war Abnahme oder es gab einen Feueralarm. Da gab es unterschiedliche Aussagen. Egal, dann erst in die City - was essen. Dann hatten wir später noch ca. 1,5 Stunden Zeit, uns das Castle anzusehen. Das hat sich dann auch gelohnt. Ich mache mal zwei Footsteps, einmal außen und einmal innen.Read more

    Caerdydd yng Nghymru

    February 2, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Der Titel meiner Fotoreihe sieht zwar aus wie ein dicker fetter Schreibfehler - heißt aber übersetzt aus dem walisischen: "Cardiff in Wales". Die Haupstadt von Wales läd ein zum bummeln und die zu Zeit genießen bei einem mittelalterlichen/modernen Flair.

    #thank you guys for the surprise :-)

    Cardiff Castle

    September 9, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    We toured Cardiff Castle, a nineteenth century fantasy of the Marquis of Bute. Over the top Gothic. The G 7 summit dinner was held here last year. The castle is built over the remains of a Roman fort, whose foundations are exhibited in a museum on the site.

    Carmarthen to Cardiff

    May 22 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    On our way to Cardiff this morning after another great breakfast, some serious dieting to be done when we get home lol. We arranged to meet Sis and Pete in the city near the castle, it was fantastic to be able to catch up with them here , and to top it off it was my birthday. We decided to do the hop on - hop off bus first and see a bit of the city , which was really interesting, we then got off at the Cardiff Castle which was amazing. The keep part is a ruin but facinating, the manor house section is incredible. The works of art on the walls and just the sheer opulance of some of the rooms was incredible. We then went and grabbed a pizza for lunch, and checked into our home for the night which was an incredible B&B in the city with Sis and Pete.We popped next door for dinner at the The Cricketers and had a really really good dinner, back to our room for a long hot bath lol.Read more

    Caerdydd.

    August 8 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Don't worry, I won't try to write anything but the name of Wales' capital in Welsh. Instead, I offer some impressions of the Cardiff Castle, the Cardiff Bay area, the Cardiff Market, and the National Museum as well as the Millennium / Principality Stadium. (It does look like a ship, doesn't it?) Also, huge thanks to the two cyclists Geoff and Jeff with whom I had a lovely chat on the jetty. I also met Stewart and John, twice, who introduced me to all possible conspiracy theories (and somehow still allowed me to take their picture, which I will not put in this gallery of course).Read more

    The Lakes District to Cardiff

    August 27, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Snapshot
    Where - Scotland to Wales via The Lakes District
    Weather - wet and dry

    We arrived back in Scotland and stayed overnight in a quirky little village called Wigtown which is known as Scotlands book town and there were bookshops everywhere (and not much else). From there we drove through the Lakes District which is a very pretty area and we would have enjoyed it except for 2 things. First, the weather was pretty lousy and misty rain spoilt the views. Secondly, we struck the August Bank Holiday long weekend and every man and his dog had left London to spend it camping, hiking etc. Combine this with the atrociously narrow roads and it really was not a pleasant experience. To top it off, there was nowhere to just pull over and take a photo and any parking places were controlled by the National Trust and there were parking fees (usually around £3). Consequently there were not many photos taken in this area.

    The following day we headed to the capital of Wales - Cardiff. We had a great time in Cardiff, partly because the weather was glorious, but mostly because our Airbnb hosts were the loveliest couple and we all got on like a house on fire. Back in Cardiff we visited the Dr Who Experience (Cardiff is where Dr Who is filmed). It was pretty good but they concentrated mainly on the more recent Doctors, not the ones I remember from my childhood like Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. We didn't do Cardiff Castle but we did go to the Cardiff museum. We are finding that one activity a day is probably enough - two at the most. Must be getting old!

    The next couple of days are spent in the Devon / Cornwall region of South West England.

    Cardiff

    August 19, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Here for the day before flying home tomorrow. The rain stopped just as I got off the train. Nice!

    Cardiff castle was lovely, too bad Uncle Dennis couldn't see it. He would have loved it. Everything from Roman ruins right up through air raid shelters all in one place.

    Afterward I went to the Doctor Who Experience. It made my nerd soul very happy.Read more
