As a journalist I was assigned Roath to cover, and couldn’t be happier with it.
For such a tightly-packed community, the range of things going on is constantly surprising – if it happens in Cardiff, there’s a good chance you’ll find it in Roath.
In my short time reporting from the district I’ve barely scratched the surface. I’ve met some fascinating people, danced like a loon at the Globe, wasted Saturday nights playing cards in The Albany, hidden from my editor in Pen-y-Lan library, surveyed the many estate agents for opinions on house prices, watched American Football in Roath Park, and dragged myself out on a Saturday for organic sausages from the market. (But everybody probably says that one).
I don’t know how long I’ll be in Cardiff, but as long as I am, Roath will always be my favourite spot.
