People Underestimate the Value of a Good Ramble

The UK Trip...Doctor Who?

In case you missed's Part 1 and Part 2.

I keep trying to tell this story in a linear manner, but it's getting harder and harder to not wander off topic down quaint little alleyways of nothingness. I'm super good at that. 

Once in Cardiff, we drove around lost a while and accidentally found our way to the Doctor Who Experience.  

Oh, and it turns out that at some point, possibly when we missed the correct turn off into Cardiff off the M4, we got a speeding ticket.  So far we were only charged the £35 administrative fee from the car rental place.  Not excited about finding how much the actual ticket ends up being.  

I got the full swag at Doctor Who (stuff like a t-shirt, postcards, stickers - one is a sonic screwdriver! - and a certificate of completion), and we had a fun time, wandering around the museum area, taking lots of pictures and videos.  

Yeah, so that took a while.  

We had wanted to get to Stratford-Upon-Avon before dark, if possible.  Of course, it didn't happen, but because we wanted to pretend it might, we had to leave pretty much right after the Doctor Who Experience and so we didn't have time to really get to see Cardiff or tour the Castle. 

We probably wouldn't have been able to find a way in anyway.  

As it turned out, it got dark well before we got to Stratford and not only was it dark, it was raining.  Plus, there was a lot of traffic coming towards us on these little windy roads. 

I tried to make it fun by singing along (loudly) with the radio, but Jeff didn't appreciate that at all.  At all. 

Shakespeare's bones coming up next...

You certainly did a lightning tour, in fact I don't know how you fit it all in! Cardiff is one of my favourite places.

Me,'s definitely taking me much, much longer to tell about it then it did to live it.
