York



By C.Elizabeth





Last weekend, Andrew and I went away for the weekend. We went to the lovely and very old town of York. I truly enjoyed its atmosphere. It's one of those place where you feel you're back in time... I was almost feeling like a Princess with my Prince Charming, walking around old and tight little streets where each (almost) building has a history.
Being originally from America, old ruins and castles are not common sights for me. Therefore, they fascinate me.


York Minster



We did as much as we could while we were there, including the Viking Center, the York Dungeons, Clifford's Tower, York Minster... and the Ghost Tour. That was intriguing. Walking around York late at night with a guide telling us stories of inexplicable things from a long or not so long time ago was fascinating.


Clifford's Tower

Erm, yes. It was windy.




Pictures you see in this post were taken on Saturday and Sunday. Since we were there three days, there will be more to come!


Our lovely Guest House"Tree Tops".

I love York. I used to go every year but haven't been in a while. It's so pretty. I was fortunate enough to perform in York Minster and it was soooo amazing. I could stare at the ceiling there forever x

How lovely it looks! Since I am Scandinavian I am really fascinated with vikings (of course you don't need to be if you're scandinavian... haha), so I've always heard a lot about York because of that!


You look so great with those white tights! They suit you so well :)
