Fun birthday trip to CardiffFollow John on Social Media:
How lucky am I? It was my birthday recently and my lovely partner took me to Cardiff for a night away.
On the Wednesday (6th Jan), we arrived in Cardiff around 3, giving us enough time to check in to our city centre hotel, before meeting a Uni friend of my partners for coffee in the new John Lewis store.
The evening was spent celebrating at the amazing Viva Brazil restaurant, no menu, just course after course of meat, they should call it Meat Heaven. Very, very filling, great fun though.
Needless to say we didn’t fancy breakfast after our evening feast, so off we went down to Cardiff Bay. If you’ve never been, you really must, it’s incredible. The regeneration of the whole area is very impressive.
Brunch was a bacon roll à la carte in a lovely Bayside cafe, yes you heard me correctly, we ate brunch outside in January…..fabulous 🙂
Wanting to make the most of our trip, we decided on a nice walk in the sunshine, ending up at the recently built (2001) Cardiff Bay Barrage. Windy does not adequately describe it, but the warm sunshine certainly made up for it.
We’ll certainly be going back again and were lucky on the journey there. Checking the BBC on my partners phone prior to leaving, they said the M5 was closed as far as Weston, so we joined it further up and avoided a 5 hour delay. Don’t always check, certainly will in future….
