Welsh Language Translation Fail – Take 2

Language Translation FailWales seems to be the favourite place for translation fails in road signs.

Last year Swansea made a big mess-up when it came to translation of English text into the Welsh language.

Now it’s Cardiff’s turn.

This roadsign was spotted in St Mary St. in the centre of Cardiff’s busy shopping area.

The BBC reports that the sign says “pedestrians look left” in English, but that the Welsh “cerddwyr edrychwch i’r dde” translates back as “pedestrians look right”.

Maybe trying to catch the tourists out?  🙂

Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve

St David's Hotel, Cardiff Bay from across the Cardiff Bay Wetlands ReserveThe Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve is an area of piece and quiet right in the middle of Cardiff Bay.   It was formed from the salt marshes and mud flats on the edge of the Bay in front of Windsor Esplanade after the bay was permanently flooded.

There was some concern that when the Cardiff Bay barrage was built that the wildlife would all leave but the Wetlands Reserve has proved to be a popular area.

Although totally man-made it has become a haven for birds in the Bay.

It also provides a quiet place to walk or cycle just away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay. (more…)

Gareth Mason stars on Graham Norton

Graham MasonGareth Mason from Barry was recently the star on the Graham Norton show.  Even though he’s a “big lad” he does some amazing dancing to the James Bond theme.

Go for it Gareth, and well done Mrs Sparks!!!!

Here’s Gareth’s appearance on Youtube –
