E: Scarborough

IMG_4183While in the last few weeks of this year at York, I decided with some other flatmates to visit out flatmate Emily while she was at home in Scarborough. I was keen to see what it would be like as I’ve heard so much about it. Phrases I had heard in the past to describe Scarbs were somewhere along the lines of ‘line at the job centre,’ ‘shit hole’ and ‘too touristy’. Having been there and back I can tell you Scarborough is wonderful. There wasn’t many people when I went but the two shores are beautiful and there’s plenty of greenery. I mean take a look at the pictures and judge for yourself. Thank you to Emily I had a great day, especially renting the paddle boat at the chinese themed park.

The Coast on the North was even more beautifulIMG_4471

I think ‘lush’ is appropriate

C: Summertime

d6f2d290e8a111e2be6b22000aa80214_7Yesterday Amy and Rach came round for some hang out time in the garden, I hope this weather keeps up, we don’t get much sun in England.

E: Harrogate

IMG_5122The last ‘House 8 Roadtrip’ (House 8 was the name of my university flat) was to Harrogate, a very posh spa town. Being a spa town means that it has Roman like baths, and was were people would be sent if they were unwell to get better supposedly due to the charm of the place. It wasn’t my favourite place we visited probably due to the nasty weather. However if driving by it’s definitely worth having a little walk around as there are some beautiful buildings. I really liked the main park with a pine forest and the gallery which changes it’s exhibition. It’s free to get into both of those.

C: Sunset

Went and saw a beautiful sunset on my last evening in York before heading back home to eat some delicious home made cake. I will miss the place, I’ve had a brilliant year and it breaks my heart I won’t be back there with everyone I met next year. I went out and purchased my York hoodie so I’d have something to remind me of my ‘university origin’ if you wish. How I’ll get through labs next year in a room full of educated second years who don’t know me, who knows.

S: York’s Never Ending Winter

IMG_8048

Every chance I get to go into York on a nice day I take. Nice days are rare to come by weather wise, yet you do notice the north usually has clearer skies than the south. One of my flatmates friends came to visit and we thought we’d give a small tour and it would be a chance to use my camera. I principally wanted to film but taking photographs got a hold of me.

C: Food whoring done correctly

Why, how and when do people ever say no to food? International food market was a nice treat a few weeks back here in York and as my mother would say ‘The only thing you shouldn’t feel guilty about spending money on is food.’ I take that saying quite to heart and let myself go. I had tried the Moroccan food before and it was brilliant yet I didn’t want to play it safe a second time round.

I tried a Kangaroo burger, which I have to say I was slightly disappointed with. My Paella which was for seconds was a real surprise and in a different league to any of the ones I’d tried when I was in Tenerife last summer. Of course I have my flatmates (Michelle to the right) baking goods weekly. All this and I still feel famished all the time. Foods ranged from British to Caribbean and was a feast for the eyes even if your pockets were empty. I’m glad I didn’t have any more money on me because I may have proceeded to buy as much of the market as I could afford.
