Do not forget to purchase picture postcards of the city since they are they best way to remember memories by. These postcards, sometimes, tell many stories. Did you know, for instance, that the name `Cardiff’ is derived from the Latin words `Caer’ & `Didi’ which means `Fort of the Didius’.
This is not surprising for those who know about the history of the city of Cardiff, which started with the invasion of the city by the Roman general Aulus Didius. Though the weather of this city is not what one would call the best, the climate is generally temperate and will not hamper or dampen your stay in the city. For those who love impressionist works, a visit to the National Museum & Gallery is strongly recommended. One should also check out the Cardiff Bay which is a hub of social activity. If you prefer shopping in the streets rather than in the costly malls, do bargain, since it is an accepted practice in the city of Cardiff.
