Bucket List Trip

I am planning a 'Bucket List' trip to the UK.

Among places I plan (hope) to visit in Wales are:

Swansea (of course!)
Conwy area of North Wales
Pont-Nedd-Fechan waterfalls

People I plan to see:

WWWC contacts
My (oldest) brother
My long-time friend and drinking buddy
Former University colleagues
Some of the gang from my old Swansea local.

(Some of the) things I want to do:
[It's the hiraeth driving these mundane things]

Eat a Wimpy burger
Get a bag of fish and chips, a rissole and a sausage
Compare - side-by-side: 1/2 pint of 'Bitter' and 1/2 pint of 'Mild'
Ride on a double-decker bus
Ride on a railway train
Walk around downtown (Swansea) and browse the shops
Get photos of each of my old Swansea schools
Walk on the cobbled beach at Bracelet Bay
Walk barefoot out in the 'grannies mud' in Swansea Bay - maybe!
Eat an Eynon's pie (or equivalent)
Visit Swansea Market (I worked on its reconstruction in 1960)
Try (maybe!) laver-bread (never had it before)
Attend a Gymanfa Ganu

- there may be more to add.  Perhaps some fellow Ex-Pats have ideas from their 'bucket-lists'
