44 hours later...

Last weekend three of my girlfriends and I took a speedy trip to England for, as they would say in England "a bit of a holiday" ;) One of the girls I went with (Erica) had family in York, so we decided to visit!  Ideally we wanted to leave Friday night, fly into Manchester, and take the train (which is stationed INSIDE the Manchester Airport) to York, England. On return, we hoped to find a flight that would leave late Monday evening since we didn't have to be back for classes until Tuesday. This premeditated itinerary would have giving us a grand total of 3 full days to enjoy the countryside of England! Well unfortunately... things didn't turn out as we had hoped.

We left town Saturday at 11am, flying into Liverpool, England. Though this city may have been popular for the Beetles and their yellow submarine, it wasn't our first choice. Mainly because it's about 2 hours away from York by train (which is stationed a good 15 minute car ride from the airport). Now Mom dont freak out... but we may or may not have gotten a lift to the train station from a random man I sat next to on the plane...  I know, I know, and yes I have seen the movie Taken, but we were safe and he was harmless and very nice to drive us to Lime Street:) Luckily we booked our train tickets in advance, but for sake of saving money (shopping money;) we chose the cheapest tickets. We later found out, through Erica's Uncle, that our bargain seats might be on the roof of the train! We were relieved when we found out this wasn't going to be the case.

We had 44 hours to explore the city of York... and I think we did I pretty good job :)
