So. Day 2. Major woah!

Wednesday was hard. Getting up 4:15, flying 6:20. Arriving Stansted 6:55. You might think "Hang on! 35 minutes?!?". Er, yeah. 35 minutes plus the 60 minutes time differential. Woah...
Took the Stansted Express 15 minutes earlier and all the according tubes.
Man, can you feel underdressed on public transport or can you?
And my suitcase was heavy, so it wasn't fun either.
Arrived at Paddington around 9:00 or something like that. Made that photo for you planetkiller, though it's a modern day bench.
Got to Cardiff Central 11:48 (oh, was that the bridge Owen raced the boy in "Ghost Machine"), met Kati and Duke, took a taxi home, had lunch, played a bit with Duke, switched on the TV and saw an advert for Torchwood "2x12 - Fragments" tonight at nine on BBC 2 (freaked out a bit), and crashed about nine.
And, oh! OH! You know what I saw when we took the dogs for a walk in the afternoon? The island from "TW 2x11 - Adrift"! Just across the water from the cliff... *dies*

Woke up early yesterday, had fun. Everyone was out after lunch so I had the afternoon to myself. Had a little nap.
We went out to Cardiff in the evening, means Kati, Regina, Laura and me.
Dear Lord, a Dalek!
I was grinning like a madman when I saw the lifesized, red thingy standing around next to a restaurant. *giggles*

Today was hard so far, cleaning up. We took a good 1,5h for the cleaning, another 1h for sorting out Duke's toys. Man... I have a headache now...

I really hope so too but at the moment I'm still very green :D

I absolutely love your icon :D

Glad you got where you wanted to go! (And where pretty much everyone else wants to go too...)
Get well soon!

I seized the chance I got and I'm loving every minute of it. I wouldn't have had the chance to live this, to live here if I'd gotten the job with the military.
Though I miss my hard bed.

I'm alive and one hour closer to you, if you want to fire up YIM some time. XD

Ah, I can't wait to venture to Cardiff Bay and share all the great stuff with you!

Will. Do. Mwah! It's all so new and exciting and I get the talk English to everyone, not just to myself in a weird moment or when I'm drunk! MWAHHHHHH! *bounces*

Great to read that you have a good time! Can't wait till august to see you again. I'm thinking of staying a little bit longer and making a stroll to Cardiff to visit all the cool places.

Btw, you know that the guy who got sucked into the rift in "Adrift" was from Penarth? Saw it on his file last time I solved the riddle :-)

Is Paddington the only way to get up there?

Re: Hiya!
In took the cheap route. Via Stansted and train.
It's probably not the only way, but was the best for me.

Yup. Noticed that. I think I could go right to Cardiff Bay by walking over the Barrage (haven't seen it yet, apart from the ep) but I was "Eeeps! Penarth!" (and the "Eeeeps! Mulder!"). So, he wasn't that far from home (woah, I was grinning like mad when I walked the dogs this morning alongside the cliff...).

Can't wait for the summer to come around. I miss all of you!
