This life

Post parkrun
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.
