Once upon a time in my life, Edinburgh was home for about 3 years. I went back again one summer more than 30 years later — and rediscovered the city. Here is a list of the 10 things I remembered most on that visit.
My weekend visit to UK’s Peak District town of Bakewell — where you can find the famous pie, walk along a peaceful river and visit a stately home.
A mix of old and new, medieval and urban; the city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne exudes elegance and strength. With only 24 hours to explore the city, I wanted to take a walk into its olden times, while exploring its modern elements.
York is filled with an abundance of historical and cultural heritage; and it can be seen in every corner, every building and every street. It is like walking back into the medieval times.
Looking beneath its aging exterior, Liverpool is a vibrant city that is filled with cultural heritage; known for its strong love of football and for being the home of the world-wide sensation, the Beatles.
I love road trips! So while spending my summer in the UK, I went on a road trip of the English countryside with my family. We chose to explore the rolling fields, green meadows and farm fields of the Cotswolds.
Stratford-Upon-Avon is often associated with William Shakespeare. It was his birthplace, so the town is practically dedicated to him. We spent 2 days exploring Stratford-Upon-Avon, learning and getting to know his true genius.
I visited Oxford as a 3-year-old and told my parents that I wanted to study here one day. That dream is long gone; but fast forward 20-odd years later, I am back with them again in the same city– to visit for a day.
