    Urban Ramble, part 1

    January 24 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    This urban rambles tales us to the beautiful medieval city of Lincoln. Next day was the occasion of my uncle's 80th birthday bash in nearby Woodhall Spa and we decided to make a weekend of it.

    After checking in at the hotel, we proceeded to Brayford Pool, a natural lake formed from a widening of the River Witham; the north side is very modern, but behind it on a hill is the magnificent cathedral. The south side of the pool is the home of the University of Lincoln.

    We walked west along the Foss Dyke, possibly the oldest canal in England, and then cut up north along the expanse of West Common which was the site of the old Lincoln horse racing track as well as being used to test aircraft in WW1.

    We walked to the top of the hill (Lincoln Edge) to see Ellis's Windmill, the last one that remains of five there originally. From here we went to visit The Strugglers Inn (a magnificent real ale pub), The Lawn (a Greek revival building), Lincoln Castle (built by William the Conqueror) and Lincoln Cathedral (nearly a thousand years old).

    We proceeded past the Bishops' Palace (closed at the time) and down to the Lincoln Arboreum, a Victorian park to the east of the cathedral; this was funded by property speculation for the large Victorian houses on the north edge of the park!

    We walked down to the River Witham, seeing the old Ruston & Hornby site, part of Lincoln's engineering heritage and now under the ownership of Siemens, before ending up at the High Street. The 16th century House on High Bridge is one of only three bridges in the UK with shops on them. We went underneath, down and through the Glory Hole passage, before finishing where we started. Another excellent walk - and still more to see in Lincoln....

    Den5 Lincoln

    May 16, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Dnes rano sme absolvovali pravy "Full English Breakfast". Po ranajkach sme vyrazili za Rebekou nabalit jej veci do auta (foto bude az zajtra, ked pribudne uz aj nasa cestovatelska batozina). Zbytok dna sme stravili vyletom do Lincolnu (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln,_England), prijemneho anglickeho mestecka s krasnou katedralou. Cele mesto malo super atmosferu, moc sa nam tam pacilo. Dlhu prechadzku po mestecku a ku katedrale sme prelozili najdenim troch geocaches a ochutnavkou miestnej zmrzky. Stihli sme tiez vyskusat pivecko (Zdenda whisky) v stylovom pube Magna Carta (http://www.magnacartapub.co.uk) a poniektori aj chutne karamelove vyrobky. Den sme ukoncili vecerou v lokalnej prevadzke Wagamama (https://www.wagamama.com/restaurants/lincoln). Krasny den nam nepokazila ani pokuta, ktora nas cakala na aute, lebo sme nemali parkovaci listok. Nemali, lebo to bolo zle oznacene a nevedeli sme, ze ho treba. Zaplatime a skusime napisat complain, ale velke sance tomu nedavame. No nic, nech si nasu pokutu uziju, aspon im napiseme, aby ju investovali do informacnej tabule ;-) Po vylete sa Rebeka isla este ucit na zajtrajsiu skusku a my sme stihli koniec hokejoveho zapasu Lotysov proti Nemcom. Nemci este minutu pred koncom prehravali, ale nakoniec vyrovnali a na samostatne najazdy postupili do stvrtfinale. Teraz uz ideme spat. Zajtra bude opat narocny den - rano sa zbalit, po skuske nalodit Rebeku a vyrazit na cestu do Nemecka. Hlavnym superom nam bude cas, nakolko nemame skoro ziadnu casovu rezervu na to, aby sme stihli nas rezervovany cas na Eurotunnel, ktory zase potrebujeme stihnut, aby sme stihli ubytko v Maintali, kde nas budu na recepcii cakat iba do 23:00. Tak nam zajtra drzte palce, dobru noc!Read more
