Never did I think I would fall in love with a city as I have fallen in love with York in North England. Although the streets were bare on Christmas day it caused a feeling of nostalgia and wonder lust within me. Everything is so pretty there, whether it is York Minster, the old wall of the town.
The small allies were my favorite. Somehow they got me wondering what would lay behind them. Stores that we are used to were all around York but they were hidden within the old aesthetic. Trust me, it took me some time to get use to looking at old buildings with signs indicating that there was a Urban Outfitters or Starbucks located within.
The town has so much history, being the old viking capital. Yet, there is so much potential for the future. To say the least, this was not the last stay in York. It might even be the beginning of a new obsession for me.
