    A plan 8 years old

    A travel blog entry by annie.jon on Jun 09, 2015

    ... level-headedness and maturity. Knowing now how much planning has gone into our year long trip... I would have told my 18 year old self to have a reality check!

    What I really needed at that age was to embrace what was right here, in this wonderful country. Eventually I did just that. I went to Uni, got a first class degree, moved to London on my own with nowhere to live and no job, eventually got my first ...

    ... 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.

    We the had dinner and were entertained by some welsh singing and harp playing. Ashleigh was amazed when everyone started singing a Tom Jones song. She is a fan now!!

    ... Station.

    Oh…. Update on the bus ride to Cardiff…it’s now raining pretty hard. Highway traffic and rain, great fun. There is also a baby who won’t stop crying.

    So now we are back to the part where we catch the bus to Cardiff…

    And we arrive in Cardiff about 30 mintues delayed due to the rainy weather on the highway and traffic out of London. The Bus Station in Cardiff is right next to the main Cardiff train station. We ...
