A day in York | Photos

A couple of weeks back went on a day trip to York with some of our friends. It was the first time I’d ever been and I have no idea why I hadn’t gone before, it’s such a beautiful city.

As well as being a beautiful city with some beautiful buildings, they love cats! There’s a ‘cat trail’ in York, which you can follow around the city looking for cats on the fronts of buildings, there was also a shop for cat lovers which had a board game called Catopoly in the window. I’d love to play that.

Here are a few more pictures from the day.

A beautiful Italian restaurant, I can’t remember what it was called now though.

Have you ever been to York?

World Endurance Championships – Silverstone | photos

Some of you may already know I’m a big motorsports fan. When Mark Webber left Formula One to join Porche in the World Endurance Championships, I snapped up tickets to the British race as soon as I could. 

The race is six hours long and I was worried it might get boring, but it wasn’t for one second. There are four classes of racing going on within one race so there is always something to look at.

The race was red flagged and ended about 30 minutes before it was due to end because of torrential rain. As it was a six hour race though we didn’t feel ripped off.

It was a fantastic race and I wish I had the holiday time left to go to Le Mans.

Here are a few more photos.

On one of the rare sunny days we had earlier this year me and my Mum visited a reservoir near us called Chasewater.

We did some of our training for the half marathon here last year, so it was nice to return and not be running around it and tiring ourselves out.

Here are a few more pictures.

The National Memorial Arboretum | photos

We will remember themIMG_5903
A few weeks ago we visited the National Memorial Arboretum. It’s only about 20 minutes from my house so it seemed wrong that I’d never been before. 

The site was much bigger than I expected. There are around 50,000 trees and over 200 memorials and  I couldn’t believe the size of the Armed Forces Memorial wall, it was so much bigger than I expected.

The saddest thing for me was that there was a huge clean wall waiting for names to be inscribed on it and one day that will probably be full.

Here are a few more pictures.
