The Scottish international couldn't have scripted it better when Rovers were pitted against the Bluebirds for the opening game of the campaign.
Conway spent two-and-a-half years with the south Wales club before joining Rovers last January and can't wait to face them.
"I couldn't have wrote that!" admitted Conway. "I'm really looking forward to it.
"I had two-and-a-half great years there, obviously getting promoted and winning the league there was fantastic.
"I played a lot of games, played a big part of it and I loved every minute of it, so I've got a lot of memories there.
"I'm a Blackburn player now and that is where my thoughts firmly lie so hopefully we can go and get three points in front of our home fans."
Conway feels the match against Cardiff City is the perfect game to get the new campaign underway and is excited that football is back at Ewood Park.
"It is good to get a home game to start with so hopefully we can get off to a good start against Cardiff and carry on that unbeaten run from last season," added the midfielder.
"Like the supporters I think everybody is excited for the season to start.
"Obviously we finished last season very well least year and we want to just continue that into the new one.
"Everybody is feeling fit, we've a good group of players - a young group of players, and everybody is looking forward to the new season starting.
"I can't really remember playing against one of my former teams so it will be interesting."
