Most of you won't know, but I'm currently studying in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. I'm originally from Liverpool, and chose a city that I thought wouldn't be too different from where I'm from. How wrong was I! It is so different, but for all the right reasons. Yes Liverpool is great for shopping, it has the Albert Dock etc, but Newcastle has amazing views and places to go.
This is the river Ouseburn, which is 5 minutes away from my student house. It is my boyfriend and I's "spot" where we sit and chat on the edge of the river, eating our lunch. It may sound really cringy, but it is so quiet and peaceful, it takes you away from police sirens and the sound of cars 24/7.
You do get some funny looks walking around the area, as you see most dog-walkers and older couples; I don't think people are expecting two 20 year olds to be fascinated by a river.
Now little did I know, if I carried on walking for 5 minutes, you went into Jesmond Dene. It is an amazing park with a little "Pets Corner" with sheep, goats, rabbits etc! It also has this amazing waterfall which is part of the river. We came on a day where it wasn't that sunny (being February) and wasn't far from sunset, so I can't wait to go out in the sun.
I also love the Quayside. It has some hotels, restaurants and a lovely ice cream place!
I love coming here at night. It does get quite cold but seeing the lights makes it worthwhile.
If you ever want to visit Newcastle, or Liverpool for that matter, don't be afraid to ask me anything! I love being a city gal, a little town would be so different for me I wouldn't be able to cope!
Anyway I hope you enjoyed a little insight to where I live.
And thanks to the boyfriend for taking these pictures!
