We were greeted by a partly sunny, but chilly morning again, After a filling breakfast here at the hotel we wandered down to The Shambles. Not many people about, so we got some unobstructed photos. That was because very little was open just yet.
What a fascinating set of …
After a very nice nights sleep, Dave and I awoke bright and early to a beautiful, sunlit sky. We were soon to find out it wouldn't last the day, however. We showered, dressed and headed downstairs for breakfast. I had eggs and toast and Dave had bacon, toast and sausage. Deciding to take advantage of the good weather, Dave and I set out on foot to …
The flight landed safely and without incident at Heathrow right on time. After a very quick security run, baggage claim and customs, Dave and AI were officially in London again. We took the tube/underground to King's Cross outside of London where we then had a lot of time to kill before our 11:30 departure for York. This was my first time in the …
So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
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).

How has this inn rated in the past?
We chose this little gem due to its close proximity to York Minster and location within the historic part of the city. It's in an historic...meaning OLD building, so if you're looking for a spacious, high-tech modern hotel, don't stay here.
However, if you're looking for an inexpensive, historic place with some character that's close to city boutiques, restaurants and historic attractions, this is it.
We were in room #9 at the front of the hotel with a view of the streets. Noise was never an issue. Again, it's an old building with thin walls, and creaky and uneven floors. You're in historic York! Take it all in!
No, there is no convenient parking, or elevators (lifts), or decent water pressure in the very tiny shower stall, but we knew that coming in. Our only real disappointment in the hotel was not having Internet access. Other than that, Galtres served its purpose: shelter, food, and convenience.
The staff was very helpful and the food was very good. It was all about location for us with this spot.
