Keryn's Travelogue: Day Trip to York, England


IMG_8558

Today's post will be on the day trip to York with sis. :) 19/07/2015 

Throw throw throwback to when I was back in UK and sis came to visit me for my graduation. We planned a day trip to York because I've heard lovely things about the town but have not the chance to visit. This post has been on my blog list for the longest time so I figured its time to get it out of the way. This is also dedicated to sis who texted me one day asking me to update LOL here you go!


York

York is only around 30 minutes train ride from times and the first thing that welcomed us after alighting the train was one of its magnificent city wall gate. One noteworthing thing about York is that the town is surrounded by city walls since the Roman area *ahem wiki*.


1. Visit York Castle
