Dan & Leah's Excellent Adventure travel blog

Before leaving Swansea we head to Mumbles, a gorgeous seaside village up the road with boutique shopping - not that Leah had time to look at the shops!

We head back to Swansea to tour the streets in the rain before heading off for Cardiff. We arrive Cardiff, park in the Millennium Stadium, this £110m Stadium was built for the 1999 Rugby World Cup, and will also be used in 2012 for Football for the London Olympics.

For the quickest and easiest way to see the sites we take the Hop-on/Hop-off bus. With a great tour guide we learn about the history, buildings, monuments etc of Cardiff. We didn't bother to visit the Cardiff Castle as it did cost and we thought we had seen enough castles!

We take a walk through the beautiful streets and arcades, stumbling across a gorgeous girlie stuff shop.....with Leah pulling out the credit card!

It starts to rain again so we hit the road for Bristol, Dan behind the wheel and Leah searching for accommodation for the night. We find that there is no car parking or free car parking in the CBD, so we try our luck just out of the CBD.......but not having much luck, unless you want to pay big bucks - we don't! We are running out of time, its getting late, and we are tired and hungry, which then equals grumpy travellers! Leah finally finds a place, North Green Lodge in Clifton Hill, a three bedroom house - it's perfect. For £55 we get an ensuite, private conservatory with a fully equipped kitchen, all you can eat cereal, toast, yoghurt and fruit, which is in our room, free wifi etc, etc......it's amazing, it's a steal......to make it even better, we didn't have to pay on arrival - we just have to leave the money and keys on the cupboard when leaving in the morning.......can we be trusted?
