  • Day122


    January 3, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    The dog walker was scheduled to come in at 1pm today so I took advantage after my morning walk with the dog and took off to York for the day. 35 minute train ride to York and paid £17 return. Works out to about $29 for the day. The trains are super expensive here and no where as nice as European trains or as affordable. In fact they are in need of a severe upgrade based on the ludicrous cost of them. Nonetheless York was great and rich with history and quite lovely. I spent around 5 hours touring around but didn't go into the sites as everything was a minimum fee of £6 entrance fee. What ticks me off the most is that churches charge a fee to get in. I refuse to pay an entrance fee for a place of worship and so I turn right around and leave. The vikings and Thomas Cromwell were in York and do was Constantine and the Duchess of York. Remember her she was the fiery redhead that Prince Andrew was married to for short time. I enjoyed the Minster Abbey and found the Ghost walk interesting and also Clifford's tower. Found the library in Starbeck later on my way home and tried to plan my trip to Scotland. Will have to go to the bus company tomorrow to book a ticket as the internet sucks for information in the UK.Read more

    The rain comes

    July 27, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Englisches Wetter machte es heute schwierig. Regen, Sonnenschein und wieder Regen. Aber dennoch ist York sehr sehenswert. Vom York Minster über die City Walls (auf denen man einmal um die Innenstadt herum laufen kann) und die Snickelways (kleine enge Gassen durch die Stadt). Alles in allem muss ich sagen, dass ich York gerne noch einmal besuchen würde. Hier gibt es sicherlich noch mehr zu sehen. Einmal hoch auf den Minster Tower mit 275 Stufen musste natürlich sein.Read more

    You might think that I would be tired of old piles of rocks, but they are still fascinating me 😀 guess what you do with 1000 yr old crypts?? You make them into beautiful flower pots, lol 😊

    Winner Winner Dive Bar & Grill-York, UK

    June 14, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Because tea/coffee is good/useful (even if in the slightest) and apparently York's public, paid, bathrooms close!?! Where else can you get a bathroom and not booze... Well not at the Indian place that's for sure. Nice guys, atmosphere, and good drink as well as totally passable facilities. ;) Also great view.Read more

    Schlange stehen für ein Stück Magie

    September 29, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    In den Läden in der "Winkelgasse" gibt es alles, was das HP-Herz begehrt... so musste mein Portemonnaie ein wenig leiden. Aaaaber Ende des Monats bedeutet gleichzeitig Payday - also alles halb so wild!

    Auf den Spuren von Harry

    September 29, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Unweit des York Münsters liegen die Shambles - eine kleine Gasse mit uhrigen Geschäften, die als Vorlage für die Winkelgasse gilt... die Reise in die Zaubererwelt geht also in eine neue Runde. ✨
