Our second visitor of the year has finally arrived! He had to get a passport specifically for the trip as he hadn't been out of the country in a lot of years and it was the first time traveling completely by himself... and of course, we couldn't make it easy on him and had him drive to Chicago from St Louis (which resulted in a broken down car and a rental car), train from Heathrow to Paddington and then Paddington to Cardiff. BUT we met him at the train to start our adventure. What a good birthday present to be reunited with my friend :)
As you should know by now, when you land in a different time zone, you must stay awake until at least 7pm in the new time zone or jetlag will take you out. So he landed and we went straight to the bay for a food festival. So much food. So good! OH... and he brought me American food. He's my favourite!!
Now off to bed so we can get an early start in the am. Tomorrow we start our trek to the North!
