    The last big City for a while

    August 1 in the United Kingdom

    Große Städte sind einfach zu groß um alles an einem Tag zu sehen. So muss man halt wählen was man sich anschauen will. Ich entschied mich für den Angel of the North, Gateshead Millennium Bridge, South Shields und das Earl Grey Monument. Ansonsten ist hier auch Abends gut Betrieb. Selbst in der Woche sind die Bars bis spät gefüllt. Morgen gehts nach Alnwick immer an der Küste entlang.

  • Day94

    off to Edinburgh.

    July 18, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Edinburgh today as a final destination. Stop off on the way at Hadrions wall. Northumberland after that. So onward and upward to Scotland. Hadrions wall - a bus shelter and footbridge! Wall built between Glasgow and Perth. Second wall built 12AD. Northumberland. Photo taken here of wall.

    Destination - Newcastle Upon Tyne

    December 24, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Newcastle upon Tyne is a university city on the River Tyne in northeast England. With its twin city, Gateshead, it was a major shipbuilding and manufacturing hub during the Industrial Revolution and is now a centre of business, arts and sciences. Spanning the Tyne, modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge, noted for its unique tilting aperture, is a symbol of the 2 cities.

    Drive to St. Andrews

    December 27, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Left our hotel at 6:30 a.m. to drive to St. Andrews. It is about a 3 hour 40 minute drive. Instead of taking the A1 again, we took the route that included the A68 though the Northumberland National Park.

    Roadtrip

    September 16, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    So I went to bed really late cause I was busy chatting but had to get up at 8 boo hiss. Packing took a while because Jaxon moves all our stuff around and Jess is anal about leaving the place immaculate even though we also pay for a cleaning fee when we book the place.
    Headed for Hadrians wall/ a relevant museum (Roman Army Museum) . It took 2 hours. Jax slept for 1 but was a poop for the second one which ruined my napping plans.

    Will and Jess had a argument in the car about directions which made things really awkward.
    We did eventually find the museum..
    there was a very awkward silence between us all for a long time.
    Museum was actually pretty good. The information on the walls was what it should be - providing basic knowledge along side more detailed stuff. Too many museums have skipped over the basics because they must have assumed that if you are visiting you must have ground knowledge when often we haven't.
    It had a few statues here and there and some stuff they had found but the best bit was an archery game thing where you had to pull the string and it was calculate your shot and tell you if you are too weak, hit the energy or over shot.
    Bloody jess and Jaxon 😒 wE wanted to watch the 3D movie in the museum but no.
    We couldn't could we ..

    Learnt about Romans vs "savages" (Scottish) and about Hadrian as a person.
    My heart melted. Outside the museum is a patch of grass dedicated for assistance dog toileting 😂😂😭😍❤️
    We drove around the corner from the museum and me and Will got out to see a section of the wall in the distance that everyone else was hiking. Again, we are really disappointed we couldn't too.

    We went to find food. We had maccas to assure Jaxon reached his daily nugget quota.
    This kids diet is ridiculous.
    Jaxons face is always disgusting. I feel so awkward I try to make it obvious I'm not his mum. 😂

    I had a good hours nap on the way to York.
    York full of drunks and hens
    Oh and whores.

    " there are only 2 types of mammals that don't feel the cold.
    Polar bears and sluts"
    Heh 😏😏😏😏

    Fist time in Britain we have had to pay for a toilet and it wasn't even nice.
    Didn't like York at first but liked it more as we walked closer to the centre. Still don't understand why 2 separate family members recommend it.. (Jac and Helen)
    It's surrounded by a big Roman wall.
    Seriously though everyone was off their face and it was 4pm.

    So many sweet shops
    We stopped in at Fudge and cat shop where Jess bought stuff.
    In the middle their was a Big ass Cathedral that we were gonna go in but it had a service starting soon.
    Again, I would have liked to have gone to church if Jess and Jaxon would have 😂 3/3 today.

    We listened to convos as we walked past and we couldn't understand anyone.

    We walked back to the car past a man pissing in the street (still only 5pm by now)
    We drove past the castle on the way out - unimpressive. More like a big room.
    Headed on to Leeds
    Jason likes to spit which he amused himself for like 20 minutes doing.

    We Checked in at our holiday inn. We got a double bed and a sofa bed. We got the big one - lucky! - Jess changed Jaxon on the sofa bed and left like a poo mark.....
    We went to dinner next door to the Calvary.
    I had a very British looking meal of roast and vegetables.
    They didn't have a single kids menu option - 0/10???! Like really??
    While we were waiting for the table we amused ourselves and played the arcade stuffed animal claw game. We failed haha so rigged!

    This place had Terrible service and no instructions on how to work the self service bit. Great prices though! I was stuffed and it was only 6.45£
    Jaxon threw some of his food onto a mans lap 😓
    Home and showered.
    A lot of Ryanair flights have been cancelled for the next few months (50-60 a day) but I don't ours has. I bloody hope not!
    Everyone fell asleep so quickly and was snoring.

    Oh and the museum had to COOLEST toilet wallpaper

    Andddddd Will got annoyed at dinner cause he ordered a beer and halfway through he realized it wasn't alcoholic hahah.

    Motel One - Newcastle Upon Tyne

    June 15, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Great modern-trendy decor with awesome lounge and a very thorough and beautiful breakfast while still a "budget". Ron are a bit small but have some interesting conveniences tucked away. Slept quite well, and without noise even though the night life was fairly active outside (on a Tuesday).

    Motel One Decor

    June 15, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    See, modern-trendy?...(This is a German chain and is reminiscent of the Aloft chain, but seems to everything a little more quality. Although they are stretching the simple here a little more - only small bottles of body-hair wash but no soap, conditioner, washcloths, etc. Available upon request: phone, alarm clock, iron, ironing board, and umbrellas).
    As a note, after probably too much time in hotels and some debate, Tim general really likes bar soap and washcloths but we both hate the waste of the hotel industry. So we both agree that the permanent containers (including hanging in the shower) of refillable liquid seems best... Although, as Tim puts it they are "tacky" and you still need a washcloth, or something, to efficiently use it. This explaining our convention with some 'minimalist' design. :)

    ... sorry for so many posts; a downfall of this app/program is a limit of six per "footprint".

    Day two

    April 16, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    We went to the botanical garden with birding pal Gilberto.
    Our visit was lovely as the botanical garden was closed due to it being a bank holiday, but Gilberto was allowed in as he had a pass. As a result we were pretty much the only people there and the birds were around as it was quiet.
    Gilberto was very patient with us, showing us the birds, allowing us to stop and photograph even the commonest ones, and finding them in the field guide.
    Walking through the gardens, there were two lakes, one surrounded by jungle vegetation and trees, and the other one with a more open aspect. We spotted some rare wood rails around the first one, but the second one was full of turtles which was entertaining.

    Eventually we had seen what there was to see and Gilberto was keen to show us a marshland near the airport. When we got there we were warned about some people on bikes up the track who we should avoid as they may be robbing people. We had our expensive photo kit and new binoculars with us so this made me very nervous and spoiled my enjoyment of the area. We did however see some parakeets nesting, which was a highlight.
    We went back to the hotel for lunch and bought lunch for Gilberto to say thank you.
    That evening we dined in the hotel with some other folk attending the conference.
