Tales from the Far Side of the World: Cardigan!?!

Filed under: news of the day — lexifab @ 8:41 pm

(Damn, just typed up a post and lost it somehow. Don’t you hate that?)

So today we are in Cardigan, a small seaside town in South Wales where the main selling point appears to be, rather than the eponymous outdated item of apparel, Lord of the Rings-related tat. So far in the twenty minutes since we’ve been in town, we’ve passed Gandalf’s Workshop (a craft store), Helm’s Deep (one of the ubiquitous Games Workshop stores you find in the UK) and The Shire (not sure what that one was, to be honest). Can’t really ascertain what the obsession with the good Professor’s work is – perhaps he lived here at one point?

We’re all fine and jim dandy, touring about in the car. The airline crisis is a bit of a worry, but we’re hoping that things will have settled down to some level of equilibrium by the time we have to fly again at the end of the month). In the meantime we’re taking our lives into our hands by sharing the roads with Britain’s enormous population of idiots who think they’re The Stig from Top Gear. Honestly, people really do drive like maniacs on very narrow roads here. It’s actually quite entertaining once you get past the sheer terror of it all.


  1. outdated? Cardigans?? Never.

  2. If cardigans were good enough for Kurt Cobain, they are good enough for me.

    I’m so hardcore.
