IMG_0652IMG_0663It’s a pity that I haven’t visited this place sooner during my time at Cardiff university. St Fagan’s, ah I remember the days when I visited with school on a Welsh trip, this place is a perfect spot for family day out, educational tours for discovering the ancient Welsh life. I think it’s the biggest open air museum in Wales, and of course the best thing about this place to visit is that it’s free, besides the travel expenses which I paid £3.00 catching the bus from Cardiff Central station.

It is indeed a wonderful place especially on a sunny day, as you can see, there are picturesque sceneries almost everywhere you go. For nature lovers or photography fanatics like myself, this  is heaven.

 

 

Tour around campus

It was a lovely day in Cardiff, so I decided to take some pictures around campus like I promised! I love the university park because it’s rare to have a quiet space in the city, but in Cardiff we have the best park! As soon as you enter, the city atomsphere disappears and you can just get your mind wonder indulging in nature. I was born a city girl but having spent my 8 years in the welsh countryside, I realised the importance of having a good balance of city life and peace! So here, I feel like home.

Below is a picture of my hall from the outside, I love it! We also have a private garden and even a cat! Guys, feel free to ping back with pictures of your favourite spot at whichever university you attend! I would love to see them!

Life At University

As some of you probably know, I’m all settled in at University’s hall of residence, moved on the 18th (hence the reason why I haven’t post anything in the past few days.) But, yes finally I arrived at my favourite city – Cardiff and my bedroom is alot bigger than I expected which is another bonus! Oh and I love my hall so much since they organise their own little events with the girls living here, such as the night we had called pizza night where we had to play little games and socialise with each other over pizza!

So this is it, I’m starting to budget, doing errands, making new friends; all apart of growing up and being away from home! Even though the summer is over but I’m determined to make 2013 the best year of my life.

Yesterday’s update – mums birthday celebration!

It’s been a while since my last post and don’t worry guys, you are not forgotten! So I’ve been quite stressed lately about the upcoming exams and yesterday was mums birthday so I had some detox time with retail therapy and a delicious meal at Chimichangas. Here’s some pictures:

What I did yesterday – Update!

Hey darlings, its late sorry about the bad update. I promised to write about my day at Cardiff city yesterday so here it is.

The morning started in a rush, I spent too much time doing my hair so I nearly missed the train by 5 minutes!! SCARY THOUGHT. Finally I met up with my bestie Daniel who came down to visit Cardiff for the day, once again nearly missing our train to Cathays by one minute haha! We walked around the campus area for a while, you know pretending to be younger like we had no UCAS experience ;). We then settled at this beautiful garden to relax and chatted about what we saw mainly how excited we are for  September. With daffodils booming all around us, I am more determined than ever to being able to sit on this exact spot catching up with Dan over a coffee again. 😀

After showing Dan some of the major sites in Cardiff we ended our day with a long conversation at Starbucks, overall it was so nice meeting him in a lovely day , now let the hardcore revision session begin ;)!! I shall write again soon.

My evening

So Joe and I decided to go for a walk with our dogs earlier this evening, even though the weather wasn’t the nicest… you know the typical Welsh weather, you never know when there might be a dark cloud then next minute BAM soaked from head to toe. Yes, that’s what happened to us!

Oh and I couldn’t resist myself from shopping online… again, I got a pair of cute summer wedges and a top for my holidays this summer, pictures will be posted when they arrive of course! In the next few weeks I would be pre-occupied with exam revision and going to Cardiff to meet up with a friend too!! Stay tuned!
