Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 3: 18 May 2014

Sunday in York! Hostel check out time was 10 (REALLY?!) Buh-bye, hostel! I didn’t walk around the city on the York City Walls, but I did walk up up for a quick snap from a new perspective Always with the tiles… Clock outside St. Martin Coney Street/St. Martin Le Grand St. Wilfrid’s again York Minster […]

Saturday in York was just SOOOOOOO sunny yet pleasant outside. Back home, we don’t get a lot of sunny days that aren’t unbearably hot.  I couldn’t help but wander around, snapping photos at my own leisure.  This may be a photo-heavy and story-poor post.

I felt as if I accomplished a lot during my first few days in the country already! Knowing that I had a second night of meeting a Twitter friend for […]

Amanda Goes to England, Vol. 3: 12 May 2014 {Part B}

Picking up where I left off in Part A… It was a sunny-ish day, so I decided to just walk around taking pictures, as I am wont to do. That’s really my favourite type of photography to do, be it back home in Memphis or across the pond. After the British Museum, I explored the […]
