At the end of June, I visited my friend living in Birmingham. The trip by train coach was fun. Birmingham is quite a big city, and the Birmingham Canal and the cruise looked nice. Many people were enjoying drinking and chatting along the canal. The public library in the city was marvellous. It is a very new building, and its observatory overlooks the whole city. Like many people do, my friend and I bought pasties for lunch and went to Birmingham Cathedral and spent time on the grass.
I also went on a trip to York. Many friends of mine said to me, ‘You will love it!’ Yes, York is very a beautiful, historical and lovely city. I really came to love York. York Minster, the Museum gardens, so many small shops and the river, and a lot of restaurants along the riverside make it a lovely city. Four friends of mine and I had a meal at one of the riverside cafes and enjoyed the day trip. I would love to stay in York for at least two nights to visit the places we didn’t have time to visit this time!
