York - Yorkshire

On my most recent (last weekend) trip to England my sweet friends showed me York. Guess mostly because I´m swedish and York was once Jorvik and infested, sorry invaded by vikings.
I can now honestly say that I love York. All the history and impressions and the beauty of it really filled my soul. Sorry if I´m going a bit hippie-ish on you. Excuse photos, they are taken on mobile as camera decided to play dead that day :/





From York Designer outlet, apparantly I was not the first scandinavian in that building ;)



There had been some rain before we got there..



Restaurant that we found just after we´ve eaten somewhere else



Where many different kinds of people gone for shelter..



Old Merchant hall

Truly a lovely place and if you ever go you will fall in love just like I did.
But Chester is still my no 1 ;)

York is one of those places where I'd love to go, isn't too far away, have passed by on several occasions, but have never actually stopped to look around...Your photo's have made me think again about going this year...

Us people from Sweden invaded the right city ;D hehe.

Beautiful! (I'm jealous! We nothing that cool in Arizona. I guess we have the Grand Canyon, but other than that- nothing!)
