    The Whoniverse

    October 14, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    I can't make up my mind as to whether I like Cardiff or not. It's not a huge city - 350,000 and quite compact. I'm not sure whether the area I am staying in (by the main train station) is seedy or not but it is central.
    I started off with the hop on hop off tour. There is a stop conveniently close by.
    I got off partway at The Doctor Who Experience. I am a huge Doctor Who fan especially Doctors 9 and 10 so this was a no brainer.
    It starts with the "experience" in which you go through a journey with the twelfth Doctor. I won't say much here as they prefer it not to be spoilt but it was fun. I helped to save the universe.
    There is an exhibition of various costumes in which I had a good browse through. All up I was there for several hours.

    From there I walked across to Mermaid Quay for some lunch and took a look at the Ianto Jones memorial and the Millennium Centre. I met another Torchwood fan who was there with his friend who just didn't get it, he would rather be in the pub than look for the water tower.

    I caught the bus back and then went down St Mary st which I thought was meant to be the shopping precent but it was all bars, backpackers and not much else.
    I got back to the hotel just before five intending to go and do some washing but discovered the laundromat closed at 6 so watched a movie instead. I eventually went across the road for some dinner and have been catching up on my TripAdvisor reviews.

    Caerphilly Castle ist eine Wasserburg in der Stadt Caerphilly mit schiefem Turm und Unmengen von Enten, Gänsen und Schwänen rund um das Schloß.

    Mit der Brecon Beacon Schmalspurbahn geht es den Berg hoch und wieder runter und jede zugfahrt ist ausgebucht.

    Der Wasserfall ist mit 27 Metern zwar einer der höchsten in England, aber die Wassermassen flossen sehr spärlich....

    Taff Trail begins

    September 18, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Like some sort of foolhardy adventurer I was off into the unknown deepest darkest Wales, starting at Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay. Only 50 miles to do today, over some of Wales' finest hills, and with knees not quite recovered from the Lake District leg of the coast to coast walk. Better get going then...Read more
