""You can take the girl out of Wales....."" AbbyL's Profile

Hi! Welcome to my page!

I'm new to this, so please excuse the fact that it's so basic. I'll attempt to make it a bit more interesting soon, once I've managed to take some decent pictures of my home city, Cardiff.

Yes, that's where I live. Cardiff is the capital of Wales, and in fact is Europe's fastest growing capital city. You REALLY should try to get here sometime - you won't be disappointed!

This photo was taken from the castle, in the middle of the city centre. You can see the Millennium Stadium in the background - the home of Welsh rugby (it's been a long time since I've said that and felt proud!)

I'm the one wearing the blue jacket. That's my Finnish friend Ansku, with red hair. She was visiting Wales for the first time in 2004.
