Probably the hardest decision Jason and I made the weekend we were in Cardiff (after choosing between coffee or tea over breakfast, of course) was which of the castles we wanted to visit on Sunday. Choosing between Castle Coch and Cardiff castle was tough stuff for Ultimate History Enthusiasts like us. In the end, we decided to head over to Caerphilly and visit the pint-sized 19th Century fairytale-esque Castle Coch, so as not to have a history-overload what with our trip to the Tower of London coming up this weekend. Oh, and speaking of Castle Coch, I learnt the hard way this weekend that ‘Coch’ is actually supposed to almost rhyme with ‘cork’. Just FYI…

Here are a couple of photos from our last day in Cardiff, if you’d like to see!

So this past weekend, we took a little trip to Cardiff! Jason spent the journey over there trying to convince me that we needed our passports, plug adaptors, and ‘Welsh money’. I wasn’t fooled by the idea of Welsh money (three years working in a foreign currency exchange’ll do that to even the most gullible of girls) but I was about five seconds off googling ‘Passport checks on the Severn Bridge’ when Jason stopped teasing me…

after a couple of days of exploring our local town and soaking up the sunshine in lake garda, my ma and i decided to do some exploring! ma convinced me to take a cable car about a zillion metres up the side of a mountain, and although i did protest loudly from start to finish (i’m not the greatest fan of heights!) the view was totally worth it! it was pretty peaceful up there, what with the sound of the bells round the cows’ necks, blue butterflies flitting about and the clear mountain air. you’d probably still have to pay me good money to go in a cable car again though- that on top of two flights this holiday was too much for this scaredy cat ;)
on our last day in italy, we took a paddle boat up to the very north of the lake to visit the town of riva. riva is much larger and more city-like than other towns round the lake, and was so incredibly airy and pristine. the town squares were full of little market stalls, and had i not already purchased some fancy caramel scented soap i’d have bought the sweet vanilla cat soap pictured below in a heartbeat!
all in all, my holiday with my ma was pretty perfect :) our hotel rooms were right opposite one another, and pottering back and forth between the two whilst we got ready each evening made it feel like we were on a week long sleepover! so, so fun :) thanks, beautiful mum, for an absolutely wonderful week. i love you one hell of a lot!
p.s. in case anyone was worried, jason managed to survive the full week whilst i was away ;) he lived on frozen pizzas, fish fingers and oven chips, and yet still managed to lose weight!? how that’s possible,  i will never understand!
