    This hostel was perfect! The owners, Abi and Charlie were so helpful and lovely people! The breakfast was more than I was expecting, and there was plenty of options to choose from. The rooms were nice, and the bathrooms were very well kept. Everyone was willing to help if you needed it! We are already planning on staying there again when we travel to Cardiff. It was very reasonably priced as well for everything that we had access to! Can't wait to go back!

We spent a wonderful and busy couple days there! We took the train to Cardiff, which was an easy 4 hour trip. After checking into our hostel, which is a cute little place (Check out the picture!) we …

    ... and behaving like a child...you begin to take responsibility for your surroundings..cleaning, cooking, organising bills, these are all really important life skills which school and university simply doesn't prepare you for.

    I am so glad that I did not go travelling then because now I know this is the perfect time. The universe provides exactly what we need at any given moment. I now have the wonderful Jon ...

    ... visa applicants have to go to the Moscow embassy to apply, even if they live 5000 miles away in Vladivostok. So now, I have to go to London to present myself in person. Fair enough. And then the Chinese visa. A little less onerous but still involves lots of financial outlay. So now it's just waiting until my new passport arrives and then trusting a Russian travel agency with hundreds of pounds for the vague promise of train ...

    ... Sri Lanka and it turned out to be the perfect introduction to india. Botswana was fabulous and spectacular as well and I could easily return there. As to mainland India, Gujarat and Rajasthan were equally fascinating. Rajasthan surprisingly so, as I expected it to be too touristy for me, but those worries were blown away by the sheer size and variety of what was on offer. The North East of India was definitely the find of my find of the trip. It really hits the mark for ...
