The Bon Jovi gig was cool, probably 70 thousand people there? Unfortunately my expectation of having two options once the gig had ended hadn’t taken into account one thing – SUNDAY.

That’s right, t’was a Sunday, everywhere was closed long before the gig even ended, so I spent from 11 till 4:20 in Cardiff train station, and it was bloody freezing. But I’d say it was worth it for sure. Amazingly it was daylight for most of the journey – got back in Winchester about half six and went to bed for the rest of the day. Still feeling sick from spending the night in the station.

In two months I’ll be doing it all again – I just ordered a pair of tickets to see the manics at the Cardiff International Arena on the 23rd August, now that will be a great gig!
