Travel Blogs from York
York, of course has it's charm - the old wall, Minstry and its situation on the river - so there was plenty for us to do in the short time we were there. The Ministry (the largest Gothic cathedral in Europe was beautiful but we didn't venture inside given the exhorbitant price (around NZ$30 per person!!) instead choosing to walk about parts …
TravelPod appears to be back in business, so a little catch up or two. Not sure whether the problem of inability to upload photos was software or me the user; anyway working again. Drove from York through North York Moors with light snow, heather and cold. Deviated from my destination of Whitby to visit Goathland, AKA Aidensfield!! Spent time there …
... br> At the beginning of December we will cross (hopefully from Northern Thailand) into Laos. We'll have 30 days to explore as much as we can before crossing into Cambodia, for roughly the month of February. Then it's in to Vietnam.
We then plan to head south through Malaysia to Indonesia. Then....we'll let you know!
Checked into our Uber Modern B&B in the old walled city of York. The friendly owner has gone all out in redecorating our room in a Japanese theme and electronics and buttons galore (press button shower, smart 3D TV, silent fridge etc). The old city has a myriad of narrow winding streets and 14th century houses and, of course Minster Cathedral, a sprawling example of a 13th century ...
... another section of the wall, and also took a walk through town.
Back at the hostel, we met up with another Canadian! Vicky, originally from Taiwan, now lives in Vancouver! It was really nice to talk to another Canada. Our whole group, now 5 strong, decided to head out to dinner at a pub near our hostel. We chatted the night away, however I tucked in a bit early as I have to catch the train to Durham early in the morning.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel, while being within an easy walk of the town centre, was extremely hot and noisy and the rooms are very small. It's overpriced - unless you plan on using the gym etc - which we didn't given we stayed one night only.
The staff were helpful and the breakfast was better than average. Another plus was the blackout lining on the curtains which made it much easier to sleep.
We spent 1 month travelling around the UK and this was the most overpriced accommodation we experienced in all that time.
I wouldn't stay here again.
