Had a great visit to Cardiff. Ruth & I are huge fans of the new Dr Who series as well as the spin off show Torchwood. For this reason we decided to include Cardiff in our travels so we could visit some of the filming sites. The No 1 place on our list was Roald Dahl Plass, at Cardiff Bay where a lot of the exterior shots of Torchwood and a fair few episodes of Dr Who are filmed.

hongkong_panorama1.jpgOn Sunday I crammed in approx 2-3 days worth of Hong Kong site seeing into 12 hours. It was thoroughly enjoyable but boy was I tired afterwards. So much so that its taken until now (Wednesday night) to be able to blog about it.

hongkongday1-004.jpgTonight I’m experiencing something new, Hong Kong. I flew in this afternoon for the very first time and i’ll be here till Thursday.

Flying up from Sydney today was surprisingly good. I’m not sure if I’ve just set my expectations too low or not, but the Qantas staff were great, i was given the seat i requested, the service was good, the food was ok and even the on-demand video service stayed working the entire flight. (btw – Zodiac is worth watching)

Arriving in Hong Kong while the sun was still up, i breezed through the efficient airport straight onto the Airport Express train, which promptly deposited me smack bang in the middle of Hong Kong city. From there what should have been a quick cab ride was lengthened due to the traffic, however I didn’t mind while i had a good gawk out the window. My hotel is in the Causeway Bay area.
