Diolch yn fawr iawn - Thank you very much (also posted in Section VII)

To everyone who began, and those who contributed to the GoFundMe which was set up for me to take a trip to my beloved Cardiff...


It was the 29th May 2018 when I was surprised by this beautiful, generous, and kind gift. I ended up postponing the trip to coincide with a trip to London to see the concert version of Les Misérables (which my sister treated me to), but I finally got to Cardiff on Wednesday (6th November 2019).

I arrived home yesterday tired, a little sad at having left Cardiff behind, but incredibly happy. Not only that, but I also feeling exceptionally grateful to everyone who helped this to happen for me. I will never be able to convey just how important that city is to me (mainly because I have no explanation as to why it means so much to my heart), and neither will I be able to thank you all enough.

A short trip to Cardiff may not seem all that significant to a lot of people, especially in the grand scheme of things, but to me it means the world. You all showed my cynical soul that there are people in the world who are willing to gift happiness to someone without expectation of anything in return. I wish I could hug each and every one of you. Just know, I carried you all to Cardiff with me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you (ad infinitum).

There are ten pictures under the cut. (Those on my friends feed will have seen some of them.)
