A weekend in Cardiff

'Let's take a trip to Cardiff!'---- that's a thought I have had for many years. But like anything you things come and go, and important things happen, and you don't end up going, and your heart still wishes for it. Well my wonderful friend Laura recently moved to Cardiff, which of course meant, LETS GO AND STAY!
Laura organised it all, and myself and my uni friends all decided to meet up one weekend. After a crazy train journey I was finally in Cardiff. I was greeted at the station in Welsh by some lovely ladies, and then I spotted my friends. They had spent the time waiting for me to guess the colour kanken I had. (I brought my orange one with me). Our first stop was some cute gifts shops and of course a cup of coffee.
I got to wander around Cardiff with my friends, catching up, telling stories, laughing and just having a perfect time. It rained so much. We got soaked, and purchased ice cream while it was raining, like you do.
I visited lots of Doctor Who and Torchwood locations which did make me a little teary. Doctor Who is my favourite show. I have fallen a little out of love with it, but being in Cardiff made me remember how good my favourite show was, and how much I loved it. I also managed to visit the Doctor Who experience, which was very emotional and amazing. I shall save all this for another dedicated blog post. 
We had lots of yummy food and visited cute tearooms for cake. Even though it was still raining, we eat cake and drank tea and just enjoyed all being together.
I'm nearly hitting 10 years of friendship with my wonderful uni friends, and we are planning what to do in our 10th year. It's crazy to think next September it was 10 years ago I started university. Time really does fly when you are surrounded by friends that love and support you.
