      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!

      After registering for classes, we had about 4 days free before classes started, so Abby and I decided to make the most of it and travel to Cardiff! 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 …

      ... inspirationally do. Travel at will, absorbing the glories they experience and sharing them in their own inimitable fashions on Twitter. However there are a few barriers. Setting up the business has begun to address the biggest barrier - lack of finance. If plan A materialises in the next year I should be able to go away and leave the house to earn my living. Caring for my nearest and dearest is more of a challenge than a barrier. Tiggy ...

      ... was coffee time. Coffee does not fill in 2 hours! So I Wandered and walked and eventually made it to the site by 10am, for my 11am tour. Grrr... So a second coffee and more walking then I was ready. Cue Doctor Who...well almost. See my ticket said 11-11.30am. Which really means 11.30am. The best news is I bought the wrong ticket (no sarcasm). I thought I'd paid for the Interactive Experience and ...

      ... for the car to show up, someone suggested we look at a website containing 50 of the best UK places to visit according to a red top newspaper. We looked. About 15 of them were in London or nearby, which is not an ideal place to visit in a car. One is in Northern Ireland (Giant's Causeway) and another is on the Isle of Wight (The Needles) which are not feasible. We decided that the remaining 33-ish we could have a go at and see how many we could bag. A ...
