Getting to know Caerphilly

Back in 2012 when I first moved to Caerphilly from Cardiff I hated it. There was nothing about it that I liked, I was thoroughly miserable for the 11 months I lived here. Now it's easy to see that it wasn't the town making me miserable...

Roll on 20 months and I moved back to Caerphilly. It hasn't been smooth sailing, it's taken me a while to settle back into living here. There's something about that mountain that makes me feel very far removed from my friends and family but I'm now pretty used to it. In an attempt to get to know my adopted town I'm going to try and find out more about it. I'm very lucky to live within walking distance of the town centre so last weekend along with some friends who live locally I walked to Bella Capri for dinner.

Bella Capri is an Italian restaurant I drive past every day to get back to my house and I've often wondered what it's like as it usually seems busy. It turned out to be a really good evening with us being there for nearly three hours. The menu is more limited than I'm used to but rather than finding this worrying it was reassuring to know that they should get each dish spot on. 

As a first step into settling into Caerphilly it was a good start. I've got a few more places planned so hopefully I'll be able to update the blog on what else is out there in the county.

That really is a massive photo of my cabonara isn't it?
