York, simply beautiful

We just got back from York, a walled city, situated at the confluence of the Rivers Ouse and Foss in North Yorkshire, England. The city has a rich heritage and has provided the backdrop to major political events throughout much of its two millennia of existence.

We spent 2days 1 night, one the 1st day we arrived at 7pm. I went out alone exploring the city until midnight to do some night photography around the Historical city of York. Well, York wasnt dissapointing at all. I simply love it. The town wasnt crowded and the atmosphere was lovely. Of course late night you can find plenty of drunk people all over the town that is typical european night life. But the cops were all over the place so i wasnt worried too much bout that.

On the 2nd day we all went to Jorvik Centre. Its a place where you can find out more about the history of The Viking. Basically York known as Jorvik in Viking language was one of the Viking Invasion long ago. The place was pretty cool, some of you might find the place is quite boring but to me its good to know how those people live, who were they and why they invaded England.

Again thanks to Kak ngah and abe ga for the trip..I simply love York!
