Rediscovering Newcastle

Here are some snaps I took today – I bought a new Nikon D3100 so I had to try it out! ūüôā

Newcastle ¬†is famous (or infamous, depending how you look at it!) for wild nights out involving a flurry of fake tan, ¬†skimpy outfits and cheap drinks,¬†and it’s pretty much considered the drinking capital of the UK. To be honest, I don’t think many people outside of the¬†North East ¬†realise that the city has much more to offer than bargain booze and fancy dress nights out. One of my favourite things about it is the architecture – Newcastle, especially the city centre and the¬†Quayside (riverside), is a lovely mixture of 15th-19th century houses, crooked ¬†Medieval-style streets and modern ¬†buildings. ¬†PERFECT for taking photos! :

Just a few photo-memories..

Being back in England has its good points- I’ve missed Sunday lunches in Durham, going to the seaside for fish & chips,¬†and¬†it’s nice to be surrounded by people who appreciate the difference between Lady Grey and Earl Grey ūüėČ .

What I definitely haven’t missed is the cold, rain and the dreary¬†gloominess¬†outside (the price I have to pay for living up North!). On days like this, I really miss travelling and can’t wait to hit the road again. I’ve been browsing through photos I took just a couple of months back…They¬†really inspire me to plan more trips! Here are a few of them:¬†(I noticed photos look a bit blurry when I post them on here – if you want to see them in the original size, just click image to enlarge:)
