The new year brings with it new beginnings, new goals, new feelings and new adventures. It brings new opportunities, fears, moments we will one day look back to, memories, and much more…
I write to you today from a far away land in the UK. I left Vancouver before the Christmas holidays, and since January 21st I have began my own little adventure studying abroad in Cardiff, Wales. Cardiff is the capital of Wales and Wales is one of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom along with England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. It’s a small city only two train hours away from the fast paste capital of London. The main language is Welsh, but thankfully, English is spoken just as much and all the signs around the city are written in both languages. Cardiff is famous for its Welsh Cakes, its Red Dragon, the famous Cardiff Castle, (that’s 2000 years old and that now belongs to the Cardiffians, the people of Cardiff) Rugby matches held at the magnificent Millennium Stadium, and the city’s various “Arcades” where one can find anything from small restaurants to vintage shops, warm coffee shops, Parisian crepes, and much more, all underneath “canals” of old and beautiful architecture.
From now on I promise to keep this blog more up to date. Since I will be in Cardiff for the next 5 months until June, most of my posts will probably revolve around this Welsh city, the UK, Europe and everything that happens in between.
