Now I don't know about the rest of you, but I am one of those people that needs a little trip or adventure every few weeks or months, just to keep things exciting. Otherwise I generally become miserable and start hating wherever I am. Now that my life is in more of a routine, that revolves around working at Bench, Radio and Bring the Noise the excitement in my life had really started to dwindle.

After having a conversation whilst back home with my mum and brothers girlfriend Harriet about the above, it was decided that me and Harri would have a weekend away, I had most of the Bank Holiday weekend off work, so that was it, we were going, no matter what.

Why Cardiff? I've been once before and loved it, but never got to explore the city properly. Everyone I've ever met in Wales have been lovely, I've also made a few friends up there in recent months that I wanted to meet and I'm quite the sucker for a Welsh accent! We had quite the difficulty finding affordable accommodation, but eventually we found a deal with The Big Sleep Hotel, £99 for two of us staying one night & the hotel is in the centre of town so we couldn't really complain! 

 1. Train tickets 2. Hotel room 3. New York Deli - Best bagels in town! 4/5/6. Me and Harri being our vain selves before heading out 7. PBR - The night my friends DJ 8. Church in the city centre 9. Me by Cardiff Castle 10. The hat that received the comment "crackin' bobble that" 11. Frozen yoghurt with strawberries and blueberries - lush! 12. The Big Sleep

I had the most amazing couple of days away, it was exactly what I needed and I think it's fair to say I'm even more in love with Cardiff! Me and Harri had such a laugh and it was great to finally meet my friends and throw myself around a dance floor. We've already decided we're going back to do our Christmas shopping there and hopefully I will be up for SWN festival in October. Sod London, Cardiff is my favourite city!

Any of you got a place you love to visit when given the chance?
