York is a beautiful city.
It was nice to travel there and to explore with friends. I don't think it was possible to visit all the beautiful archaic nook and crannies I desired (Betty's Tea Rooms, antique/thrift shops, second-hand bookshops, etc) so it is definitely a city I will hopefully return to soon.
It was in York, too, that I became even greater friends with my Diana - pictures which I am bound to post at a later date (the above are digital). She is an exciting and enthralling lady.
