Out and about…

Last weekend the hubby and I decided on a day out. After not feeling my best over the last few months it’s been easy to stay in and wallow but I have finally convinced the hubby that we need to get out more so off we went! 

We decided that a day in York would be a nice start as not too far down the A1 and I have great childhood memories of days out there. We didn’t realise that it is actually very similar to the little city we call home, but we enjoyed it all the same. 

After parking in a massive car park in the middle of no where we caught the park and ride bus and got to see the city sights as we wove our way down to our first stop. The hubby is such a rule breaker! 

   
  
We then enjoyed a little walk through the town and down The Shambles. 

   

  

  

 

Before the obligatory pub break where we watched a bearded, fire eating street performer wearing a tutu and workman boots! (Sorry no pics of this one guys, you’ll have to use your imagination!)

   

 

We then walked up to York Minster and didn’t pay to get in (paying to get in a big church 😮) but stood and looked at the burning candles and windows. Such a beautiful building.

   
      
After a bit of rain that led us in to a fish and chip shop 😋 we headed of to the outlet centre where I spent too much on some trainers, a skirt, top and scarf! 

We had such a great day together we are planning more adventures soon. Where is your favourite day out? Give us some recommendations below that I can add to our list!

    York is one of my favourite places, great history, lovely town and the evil eye lounge is great for drinking.

      We walked past the evil eye lounge but never went in. Will have to pay it a visit next time we go! We live in Lincoln so very similar to York with the history and old town.
