So let me think what I can update you about. first of all I will be continuing my round the world features when I have a bit more time to collect images. The second of the Europe ones is almost complete so that will be up shortly. So this weekend I took a day -trip to the city of Cardiff, only an hour away on the coach costing me £6.20 return. I thought as I walked down to the bus station that I had made a mistake, it was grey, overcast and starting to rain, this kept up until I got off the coach. So debating what to do with myself for a whole day in terrible weather I concluded I would start with the indoor market. So after having a look around and purchasing a chocolate chip Welsh cake, I walked out into wonderful sunshine and a blue sky. This weather kept up the entire day although it was very windy. So then I went and purchased souvenirs for the family before embarking upon a wonderfully touristic day. I went to visit the castle which was wonderful and in which the war tunnels were slightly eerie, especially as they were playing radio recordings of music and speeches from that era. The habitable part of the castle was stunning, the library I wanted to claim as my own with it's wonderful lighting and then the leather seats and rows upon rows of books. After this I bumped into my two friends who were also visiting Cardiff this weekend, before heading down to the bay area and wandering about. This eventually led me to the doctor who exhibition, which I did go to. Rather expensive but a must do if in the area and a fan of the series. The most enjoyable part of my afternoon was the walk I took along the coastal path, although it mean I had to keep turning to get the hair out of my eyes to enjoy the view, being near such a large expanse of water had a wonderfully calming effect in the sunshine. I'm starting to think I need to move somewhere with a lake or by the sea, a nice sea not like the one near to my hometown which is brown and a busy shipping lane. The coach itself was rather pleasant, on the way back which was at twenty past eleven (I spent the evening eating in a restaurant and then going to where my friends were staying), had blue mood lighting which I thought was quite peaceful. However I was the only person onboard other than the driver obviously who didn't go to sleep.
I have also purchased tickets to go to Download festival in June so that is something to look forward to after my exams are finished. Originally I wasn't able to go due to an exam, however the exam has been moved and now after working out transport, a b'n'b and generally getting myself organised I will be going to sample the delights of a festival. I'm only going on the friday which I think a day might be enough for me. Before hand I'm going to a local music festival which might give me a small insight into what a big one may be like even though the genre of music will be very different. What else is there to say oh yes, the weather here in Bristol has been wonderful so today we embarked on an adventure onto the downs to have a barbecue. We may have chosen the wrong spot however as we were approached by a car and a man got out to tell us that we may continue cooking what we had on there but then would have to put it out. He was quite pleasant about it in a rather gruff way. It was nice just spending time relaxing outside with people here with some good food.
In other news I have also got a tumblr account, I don't know if any of you have one of those, if you do let me know and I can follow you etc. Right now I'm writing this whilst debating which bit of revision I want to tackle next. I've printed out a you should be studying poster and stuck it in a prime location near my desk to keep me motivated. Ah well only a three day week this week so plenty of time to revise. Hope you are all well and sorry for the long text journal with no pictures. The next one will be a continuation of the features.
