Hull
« on: 02 May 2019, 16:17:57 »

Hi folks.

Back on “world trip” 2.0. Had a great drive up through Spain and France. Third UK funeral this year. That was yesterday. Very good friend, only 69.

Anyway we have decided to hide for 36 hours to recharge our batteries before reappearing at family in Yorkshire and then going to  Scotland.

A member on here previously recommended Hull so here we are in the centre. Nice rainy day but won’t hold that against it.

I hope it is vastly improved over 20 years ago, then, because it was a ****hole then! ;D

.. or maybe they just didn't like you and wanted to get rid of you ;D

The people who recommended Hull obviously don't like you.

Yes, indeed, European capital of culture, and very deserving it was, too.  :)

Surely there must be some king of cultural event around your way? Turnip rolling? Who can shove a carrot furthest up their arse competition? Scarecrow baiting?

Carrot up the arse holds a certain appeal.

I shall look into this and get back to you with an update. :)

Early signs quite positive.

Lovely architecture. Regenerated quayside. Street food, free entertainment, had a look around Hull Minster. Marstons Pedigree. What is not to like.

Museums and art galleries tomorrow
