The past two weeks have been crazy busy and exciting. My dad came to visit me for a lovely two weeks (his first time across the Pond!). We travelled to a TON of places and did a TON of things! I started my brand new job as a teaching assistant. And my man is now back from Africa, and I am LOVING having him home 😀
Here’s a super quick recap in photos, many blogs to follow 😉
Peterborough Cathedral. Where Katherine of Aragon is buried (Henry VIII’s first wife). Also the former resting place of Mary Queen of Scots (She’s since been moved to Westminster Abbey).
Ely Cathedral, Octagon Tower tour. We got to stand on the roof of the Ely Cathedral, it was equal parts stunning and terrifying.
As it turns out I’ve been eating improper burgers all my life! Who knew?
Manchester! Here we did the Transportation Museum and the Coronation Street Tour 😉
Going for a couple cheeky ones at the Rover’s Return
After seeing my photos of Chatsworth House dad insisted I take him there. The fall colours were lovely in the Peak District and at Chatsworth House.
Me and dad being silly and taking photos in the first class train car (just before we were kicked out). We thought maybe they wouldn’t mind us sitting there as there were tons of seats on the train. Then we started looking at the menu that said “complimentary sandwiches” and thought, perhaps we will get in trouble.
Before we knew it a lady came by and asked if we’d like tea or coffee, so naturally, we said “sure! fill them up!” We are first class citizens after all. But alas before we were able to gulp down our drinks a ticket man descended down the aisle. Oh shit. He informed us we must move three cars “that way!” and we didn’t even get to finish our drinks!
We did laugh all the way home though ;). Dad said he may try this again on the plane :p.
And to top it all off… 😀 Look whose home!!!!
As we had to drop dad at the airport (for a teary goodbye) we stopped at Brighton which was nearby for the day and had a lovely walk around :). I definitely wanna go back and check out Brighton in summer time. It’s such a lovely beach!
What’s the most favourite place in England you’ve visited or always wanted to go? 🙂
