A Big hello from Celtic's Academic Intern

Posted by April Pugh on 15-Jul-2019 15:02:26

A Trip Around the World via Food in Cardiff!

Hello, my name is Gabrielle and I’m the new academic intern for Celtic English Academy! I’m from York, which is in the north of England, but I have just finished my English Literature degree at Cardiff University, so I’ve lived here for three years now! I love living in Cardiff; it feels like a second home to me.

In my first blog post I thought I’d tell you a little bit about my experience of Cardiff. More specifically, my experience of all the incredible restaurants and cafes on offer, as I love food! There’s an abundance of great places to eat in Cardiff, allowing you to taste different food from all over the world.
