T Stands for........

 Planes Trains and Automobiles

It's the school half term holidays here and a few months ago I booked a few days away for Wee Man and I to go to Wales to meet for the first time, with a gorgeous lady I met online about three years ago - I can't believe it's been that long! Helen is a prolific crocheter, most of which she makes for charity. She even shaved her hair off for charity earlier this year, so how cool is that?! She is so inspirational to me; I was very excited to have this adventure.

The countdown began on a scale I knew Wee Man could cope with. 
And as Wales is approximately 560 miles from us, flying was the preferred mode of travel.
With a good tail wind we made the journey in about 45 minutes and as Cardiff was still about an hour from the airport we got to go on a shuttle bus

and a train as well!
When we arrived in Cardiff Helen collected us from the train station; so it really was a Planes Trains and Automobile Adventure. 

We stayed in a Premier Inn Hotel which was, clean, fresh, quiet, warm and welcoming. 
With a fine view

And fine food
Apologies for the untidy look of the food, I was nearly finished when I remembered I needed a photograph to share with my T Buddies over on Elizabeth's blog hehe. 

We had such a wonderful time in Wales; Helen and her family made us so welcome and it was all so relaxed, we could have stayed. I hope it won't be too long before we can return.

I hope you have time to return to Elizabeth's blog and perhaps visit some other T for Tuesday suppers

Until next time............
............thanks for popping by to say 'Hi' ((hugs)) :o) x

  2. Your train stations are SO much more beautiful than anything we have here in the states. This was a fantastic trip and voyage for you and Wee Man. However, if you came to visit ME, you would NOT stay in a hotel, no matter how lovely the view.

    So glad you had a good time, and thanks for taking us with you on this adventure during T this week.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed my little tale Elizabeth. Stayin in a hotel was most convenient all round, especially for a first visit. Now a visit to the States, now that would BE an adventure of a lifetime :o))

  8. What a nice little holiday! And how nice to meet up with an online friend in person. I bet wee man enjoyed all the adventure and new places too. I agree with Elizabeth that the train stations in Europe are SO much better and prettier than they are in the US! Happy T day to you!

  9. Plane, bus & train, what fun! Train travel is so limited around here that I'm always interested in travels that include trains :)

  10. How nice to get to meet a special blog friend and spend some quality time together.
    Your planes, trains and automobiles trip sounds all around lovely!
    We spent a couple of days in Cardiff last year and enjoyed the castle and all of the animals on the wall around it.
    Happy T Day!

    1. Thanks so much Patty :D It was such a treat to meet Helen.
      Cardiff is a beautiful city, but awful wet the days we were there so we didn't 'partake' of the castle. It was fine to see the animals as we drove around tho'. Something to look forward to next time ;)
