So it’s nearly the end of my first week here, and in spite of being rather uneventful I’ve been having a lot of fun exploring the medieval parts of the town, chilling out in the park, finding out where the good pubs are and wandering around the markets (there seems to be a different kind of market on everyday).
The Cathedral is pretty amazing and I’m hoping to get some photos of it soon but for now I’ll make do with one or two of the gates, and some other old buildings.
So far my favorite part of the city is definitely the park and the walk way along the city walls, parts of which have been the since 270 A.D. (which is delightful to the history nerd in me). Walking along here you have the park on one side, and the main road and industrial parts of the town on the other, which look like they should be miles away from each other. As well as that there is a fantastic view of the city and the Cathedral.
