When I left the comfort of London behind for the first time after a big reunion, it was about time to board a coach that was heading towards Nottingham. One of my oldest and dearest friends started her first year of university and I had the pleasure not only to catch up properly with her and discover yet another English town, but also to live in student halls again… Who would have thought that!
It’s incredible how many things change within just one year if you let them and how you can turn your whole life upside down within such a limited period of time. I think that’s fascinating. However, I would still not want to swap with all the freshers. There surely will be enough other exciting episodes to come.
So, Nottingham. The first set of photos that you can see below picture the riverside – how would a canal ever not attract my attention – and some of the city’s nicer parts. The actual centre looks far more average and actually resembled some modern French or German city that completely lacks a soul. (Sorry, Nottingham.) However, our exploration got immensely beautiful when we caught some autumn sun among with the first falling leaves near the stunning castle. Keep an eye out for that one!
