      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 …

      ... Ron and Abi's friends from when they used to live there. There were so many people who were from PNG in this one small house and they all served together at one stage or another. There was also some family of the peoples house we ate at that are travelling overseers in Suriname, it was really cool to hear some of their experiences. It was crazy loud in there! All of them speaking very loudly, about things I know nothing about and ...

      Is this escape or running away?

      A good friend asked me recently if I was escaping or running away - that had me thinking. Why would I leave my wonderful circle of family and friends, my social scene and photography courses, a perfectly brilliant business like Express Imaging, with its fabulous team of workmates, my lovely house and car, the beautiful Roath Park and City of Cardiff to pack one bag and fly to the other side ...

      ... case anyone was wondering. My life is somewhat complete. It was nice not having a real agenda and just really being able to explore a new place. We also met two girls who had a ferret on leash. His name was Mitch haha. It was just a hilariously random day. The next 2 days we stayed in Oxford. I went to the Ashmolean (which is in art museum here) and did homework. On Sunday, we went to an Evensong service at Christ Church. It was so interesting to observe ...
