Durham, UK


it's the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday!! :D :D Good Friday was a very nice weather compared to the other rainy days but i stayed at home so today i decided to get my ass out of my chair and movies and head out to Durham with Melanie and her friend, Iana

train tickets were £5.40..i know i know...damn cheap...CAUSE IT'S 12MINUTES AWAY!!!  hahahah! wanna walk?....walk yourself!
♥♥♥
♥♥
exploring Durham to enjoy it..! :D
♥♥♥
♥♥
Durham train station..it's a beautiful weather in Durham..at least much better than Newcastle =.=
♥♥♥
♥♥
about 5 minutes later minus the photo-takings, we reached the River Side from the train station

ahead was Durham City Chamber of Trade

 ♥Durham Cathedral...not a really nice pic though =.=
♥♥♥
♥♥
sunny eh? this was taken before we went in to the Durham Castle for a tour
♥♥♥
♥♥
pictures were not allowed in the castle so....gotta LOOK BY YOUR OWN~ heheh but seriously...EYES are, when i say 'are' means it's the best lens in the world to look at what you're really looking at no other lenses can see as beautiful as your eyes

however, another sad fact is that men don't always obey rules..breaking rules at least once lah...and i did snapped few pictures in the Cathedral... (;

awesome glass architectures.. @.@

if you're currently around UK..do visit Durham and this is their website  -->
THIS IS DURHAM

normally, i hate castles and cathedrals...because all the castles looks the same to me =.= and it's not used creepy but Durham castle is now used as student accommodation or hotel accommodation in holiday seasons e.g Easter break there was a wedding reception prepared today when we visited..less creepy then abandoned castles

so...i kinda like this trip..nice weather, great tour, amazing view of the Cathedral which was also used in Harry Porter movie as filming set
