Hello All, Today the University provided a coach trip down to York to visit the Christmas markets there. It truly felt like Christmas while I was there and there were tons of stalls selling food, unique items, and commercial items. For the sake of myself, I have attached the information page to the Christmas markets... Continue Reading →
Hello All, You are in for a long post this time so you will have to bear with me...as I actually took some notes while traveling this time. After about six times of trying to recount my trip by memory, I decided this may be a better way to go. So, without further ado, I... Continue Reading →

Since I traveled by coach from the university to the parking area, I do not have any travel tips; however, the roads... Continue Reading →
Hello All, The following photos are from the coastal area of Morecambe England. This shoreline is a great little town to check out, very family friendly, and close to the lake district / Lancaster.
While the university bars are great fun, for the more chill students at Lancaster University other parts of the city can be very interesting as well. Needing a night off from going out, I (along with some uni friends) decided to attend a Lancaster Castle tour. Our tour guide, Sandra, was an amazing resource of... Continue Reading →
