cardiff bay

mermaid quay, cardiff
a couple of weeks ago i went down cardiff bay to take some photos. i’ve lived in cardiff for almost 5 years and i’ve only actually been down there a handful of times. the best time was seeing the wild beasts in the coal exchange. sadly it’s not open anymore, and i didn’t have enough time/battery left to get some photos of it.

way back in 2011 i went to barry island to take some photos for a university project. only now am i blogging about it, haha! not really, i just wasn’t into blogging at the time, but i was looking through old photos recently and came across these and wanted to share them.

i want to get out to different places and take more photos this year, so i’m essentially using these photos to encourage myself. i keep using the excuse of having no car/being unable to drive, but then i realise that’s silly because there’s quite a few places near-ish by that are quite easily accesible by bus and/or train, plus a bit of walking.

barry island, penarth, merthyr mawr, st fagans, and cosmeston lakes to name just a few. all of which i’ve been to before, besides merthyr mawr. it is an absolute dream to go to portmeirion one day, but that requires more travel and i would love to stay for a couple of days, so more money too.

if anybody reading this wants to come join me in some photography based travels at any point, you are more than welcome, and it would be ace to have a photography buddy.

christmas food in the cosy club

wooden wall in cosy club
quirky lampshade decor
i can bet a few fellow cardiffians have been here – the cosy club! i was asked to show a favourite place in cardiff for millennium hotels ‘bloggers guide to cardiff‘ project in which ..well, bloggers from cardiff show you our favourite places and things to do in the city.

as you well know, i love the charity shops here, as well as roath park, the museum, chapter arts and many other places, but i thought it would be nice to do something together and treat my boyfriend to a nice meal. we’ve been to the cosy club before, and have loved the decor and food so this was the perfect opportunity to go again.
