(Sorry to anyone who sees this crossposted everywhere)

I'm currently doing a research project for university on the impact of Torchwood on fans' perceptions of Cardiff as a tourist destination, and so I need as much help as I can get in discussing Cardiff and Torchwood and Torchwood in Cardiff and holidays. If this sounds like the sort of thing you'd like to get involved with, I have a poll and a discussion post up at [ profile] tw_tourists, and there's going to be more discussion posts and polls going up over the next few months.

Thank you in advance, and I look forwards to the discussions.

Please repost this if you can. The more people we get the better my results will be, but also the more fun we can have talking about holidays.

There are times when Cardiff looks very like Melbourne

Parts of today were times like that )

Things I learned today of note for Torchwood writers:
As late as 1913, Roald Dahl Plass was a lock allowing fairly large ships entry to a wharf where Lloyd George Avenue is now.
When the docks were working, before the barrage, there was a beach outside the TI office entrance. It wouldn't have been very nice, though, and there were boats pulled up on it.
Mermaid Quay was built up with warehouses and merchant offices. The first million pound deal is believed to have been struck in one of the offices down there.
There were some really interesting ruins at Grey Friars that were only pulled down in 1977. The friary was converted into a mansion.

And oh look, I'm back to being exhausted by travel. I could barely think last night, let alone write a diary entry.

Here be the story of why I was so tired )

If you would like a postcard from Cardiff, I will need your address. PM me or something.

I have arrived in Cardiff, safe and sound and more than a little giddy. The story of today is under this rather attractive cut.

Rather attractive cut )
