My first trip while being in the UK was to Leeds and Canterbury, in October.
The autumn leaves, the pleasant weather, and the beautiful castle made for an absolutely amazing day at Leeds. We spent our time walking through the gardens and wandering around the castle, taking pictures at every opportunity.
My favourite room in the castle was the Queen’s chamber which had the most beautiful window-seats. I’ve always wanted a window-seat in my bedroom, and it made me a little jealous, I’m not going to lie. Not the castle, or the other luxuries, just the window-seat.
We had a half hour before our coach left the castle and were walking to the parking area when we came across a maze and decided to make our way through it before heading back, confident that a maze would be no match for our skills. As you’d imagine, we soon found ourselves lost in the maze with less than 15 minutes before we were left stranded at the castle. But, as our luck would have it, we happened to stumble upon an employee who directed us towards the exit, and we made it back in the nick of time.
Next stop, Canterbury! Ever since I’d studied Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’ back in my first year of college, I’d wanted to visit, and I was pleasantly surprised. When we reached, we grabbed a map of the town and just walked around from one sight to another, until our tired legs could take no more.
The town was in full Halloween swing which was a new experience for me. In India, we don’t celebrate Halloween and so I celebrated Halloween for the first time this year!
That’s all for now, folks!
Hope you’re having a good morning/afternoon/night wherever you are!
