35. Visit the National Botanical Gardens of Wales

I only live a few miles down the road from the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and yet had never been there. I have always thought that sometimes we forget what we actually have on our own doorsteps, which was one of the main reasons I added a visit to the gardens to my list of things to do and it has taken me until now to actually fit in a visit to these gardens. I went there on August Bank Holiday and was glad that my student card still allows me discount as I did not think a lot of the actual attraction, in fact at times it felt as if a visit to a local garden centre would have been cheaper and just as interesting. Okay I did get to take some good photos but felt that the people running this attraction could have done a lot more to make the day enjoyable for all. As a garden they grow a lot of produce, which they mention can be sampled at the various restaurants/cafes what would have been nice is for some of the local produce to be available for free, even if this was only at selected times of the day. In fact I think this venue is best for people with an interest in plants or people who just want to pay to get close to nature.

46. A night out in Cardiff/Swansea

Well another item crossed off my list, as last night I went out for the night to Swansea. It was with friends from work and it was a great laugh.
