Friday Kath had a training day in York, so we took the opportunity and booked an AirBnB
for a weekend trip there. I met her in York catching the train after finishing work. I managed to get an advanced ticket in first class for only £18. I met Kath at the station and we headed to a Napalese resturant for some MoMos, yum! Our B&B was a converted garage, it had a comfortable bed and a good shower.
Saturday morning we woke up refreshed and made a short drive to York racecourse for York parkrun
. The course made 1.75 laps of the racecourse and was very well attended.
After ward we headed into York to the Jorvik Viking centre. I hadn't been since I was a teenager and had forgotton how good and pungent it is. Afterwards we found the excellent Polish restaurant Barbakan
for what turned out to be the best peirogi I have eaten in the UK.

After lunch we took a walk round the walls of the city, then popped up the Clifton tower then on to York minster. After which we had a sit on a boat taking a trip up and down the river Ouse. In the evening taking a walking Ghost tour of the city with a rather humorous actor.
Overall a lovely trip, we stopped in again at Barbakan for breakfast before heading off back home.
