1. As a complete Cardiff newbie, what’s the best way of finding out what this city is all about?

Starting a list of things to see, do and experience, of course – and then going out and doing them!

…ta da! #mycardifflist – my ultimate list of things to do in and around Cardiff

There’s just one problem!! By virtue of being a complete Cardiff newbie, I don’t know all the things that need to go on this list. That is, the things that all new Cardiffians should do, and the things that you can’t say “I’m from Cardiff” until you’ve done them, or just the awesome things which simply need to be experienced

So – help! Please comment below or tweet me using #mycardifflist to help me know what I should be getting up to

And don’t forget to start your own #mycardifflist for your adventures for 2017 and beyond!
