Newcastle

2013-02-09 15.23.22

I’ve been in Newcastle this weekend for a friend’s 21st, and its entertaining reputation more than delivered. Met some of the most hospitable people I’ve ever met in my entire life, and had a wonderful night out. In the day we explored the Toon I was very pleasantly surprised with the architecture of the place. I had no real expectations, but I think I saw some of the most beautiful buildings and scenes I’ve ever seen by the Tyne. The Tyne bridge is also so amazing; that massive structure towering over you, skimming the roofs of the ageing buildings below. As I walked with my friend towards Quayside, he said that it seemed a lot like what he expected Manhattan to be like, and the buildings and bridges that loomed over as we walked up the street made me feel like a miniature person, as if I’d drank Alice’s potion. I was roaming around like a tourist taking so many photo’s my friends almost abandoned me, and I still feel like I need to go back and take more. One weekend was definitely not enough.
