Trips // Cardiff, One Direction and 5SOS

Last weekend my dreams came true and I finally found myself in a room with Harry Styles. See, people, dreams can come true. Okay, so maybe I was also in a room with about 70,000 other people and I had to really squint in order to see Harrys face but still, we were technically together. 

Last weekend my pal and I had a weekend in Cardiff as we had originally booked to see the band 5 Seconds of Summer at the Motorpoint Arena. We thought we we would have a nice relaxing weekend and go shopping but then One Direction announced they were going to play the Millennium Stadium and, well, the temptation got the better of me.

I have been looking forward to this weekend for so long. It is all I have been talking about at work for weeks. I had a countdown app on my phone.. I was excited. Obviously the jokes came. "You will be the oldest one there" "People might ask you where your child is" etc etc. It was totally worth it. And actually, we weren't the oldest people there. There was 4 grown men opposite us having a fantastic time with their beers in their hands.

Queuing up to go into the stadium was rather overwhelming. I have never seen so many thousands of girls in one place before. It was really eye-opening. Whilst we may have not had the best seats in the world, I literally could not see a bloody thing, it was still a great show. I knew the majority of the songs and quite happily jumped up and down like the 5 year old girl sat across from me. She won't admit it but I don't think my friend had as much fun as I did which I think is a shame. Not only were we excited to see 1D, we were also really looking forward to seeing McBusted. I was a massive Busted fan when I was younger - I convinced myself I was going to marry Matt Willis - so being able to see two of my favourite bands in one place was pretty damn cool. Air Hostess really took me back to being 9 years old and listening to it in my little bedroom on my CD player after I got home from school. 

I wasn't sure how great One Direction would be live but seriously, they were incredible. They sounded just like they do on a CD which I think is really rare for an act to do. I think everyone should experience a One Direction concert at some point in their life, ha ha.

The next day we hopped on the train from Cardiff Central to Cardiff Bay. I really wanted to see the, what I can only describe as the building with the Welsh writing on, which is in fact called the Millennium Centre. We then went to see the Torchwood Memorial by the Bay and we had a little sit down and watched the boats go past like the old-fashioned people we are. 

The evening bought as another concert in form of 5 Seconds of Summer at the Motorpoint Arena. Unlike One Direction, we had great seats and we could actually see the band on stage which was a real treat. Again, I sang along and jumped up and down with real enthusiasm - I had a great time!! Also, Michael Clifford and Harry Styles are even hotter in real life.
