Adventures in England…Day 6

I am currently blogging while sitting downstairs in the pub of our Bed & Breakfast with all the locals watching a football game (soccer). They have taken a break from watching the game to play a quiz game. I just got interrupted while blogging to give ย locals help with questions that are about America hehe.

Since we didn’t need to rush around for anything this morning, we woke up around 9:30am and just relaxed. Around 12:00pm we packed a picnic and went to a little park to have lunch.

After lunch we went for a long walk in the woods down the road from where we were staying

After we walked in the woods, we went to Heidi’s apartment where a cab picked us up and took us to the Durham train station to go to the Newcastle train station.ย IMG_6520.JPG

For the rest of the evening, we were just exploring around Newcastle.

Now, I am still sitting in the pub while the locals are still playing games and watching the football game ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow we are headed to Edinburg, Scotland. Not sure if I will have wifi there, but I will blog about our trip when I get back into a wifi zone.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July back in America!

Until next time,

Caitlin
