The Shrine
fiwen1010 wrote in tw_tourists
The Shrine has come up in a few comments so far, and seems like a popular place to visit. So the question for this week is: What do you think of the Shrine? Have you been to it/do you want to go to it? Would you leave something or have you left something - and what is it/would it be?

What does Ianto's Shrine mean to you?

I went to Cardiff in January 2010. Had the trip planned since Dec 2008 when I bought panto tickets. I was SO looking forward to seeing the sites of where TW was filmed, but especially the water tower and surrounding area. I was excited to get a photo of me outside the fake tourist entrance.

Then COE happened and the fake tourist entrance was turned into "THE SHRINE." Okay, at first I thought that's a nice thing, I loved Ianto as much as anyone else, then it blew up into a ginourmous thing. I thought, maybe I didn't love Ianto as much as everyone else.

I was hoping that by six months later when I would be there "THE SHRINE" would be gone and I'd get my photo in front of the fake tourist entrance.

Didn't happen.

I smiled in the photos, read some of the things left there, but in the back of my mind was like, this isn't how I wanted the photo to be.

I would like to get back to Cardiff one day...and I hope I can fulfill my dream of getting my photo in front of the FAKE TOURIST ENTRANCE and not "THE SHRINE."
