Much as I'd love to make it, I am already taking the first weekend of January off to go to Amsterdam with a bunch of internet randoms (I can see it ending so badly, if I don't return after the 8th, you'll know what happened) and as such I think I'd struggle to also take the last weekend of January off. If not, I'd offer to drive.

With that terrible news, I assume the whole party is cancelled. [Frown]

ETA: Though it does fall two days before my politics exam. Maybe I could write it off as a study trip?

Just looking at trains, are we going to go for the usual mid-day start, or for something earlier or later. I know it sounds a bit early, but it turns out the dirt cheap tickets are still availible, allowing me to get a return for 14.50 instead of 45.

(Or I could always book an early ticket and spend a couple of hours wandering the streets of York)

Gahh can't edit my post. Thought I'd clarify that early refers to my booking, not the start time.

Well SilkenRay and Chloe came last time, and I think that between them they count as at least one "crashing Yank" (... er, since SilkenRay is American but lives in the UK - hence "Yank", and Chloe is British but lives in the USA - hence "crashing", I mean) so it would not be unprecedented.

"Cheap" doesn't go well with "Eurostar tickets" but you might be lucky. It would definitely be good to see you if you can make it!

Quite right. You'll be in the heart of Yorkshire - so it's cricket caps to wear, Yorkshire Tea to drink, fish and chips to eat and flat vowels all round. (OK, that's my stereotyping done for today.)

Are the chips still cooked in fat (as opposed to oil) in York? - they were last time I was there and that's about the last time I had a decent bag of chips - not that there was much to see - the Ouse was enjoying it's annual flood [lol]

Bets thing about York of course are the possies of scary Viking women roaming the streets on a friday night looking for alcopops - daughters of Jrvk indeed [Wink]

O.K. Dave, you can cut all that fancy 'merci boocoop' talk. If you're going to Yorkshire you have to pass the entrance exam.


Good luck. Your time starts now.

A Bit Yorkshire

You are NOT SURE if you're from Yorkshire! And neither are we!

Are you a Yorkshire lad who's lost his way? Or are you a non-Yorkshire person who's fallen in love with our glorious region? Only you can know!

Not too bad for someone who's never been to York, I'd say. By the way, did y'all know there's a NEW York? [Big Grin]

Uncannily accurate. I thought I was going to be a dog at one point...

I think you should get "Yorkshire points" for the roast dinner option, though - surely a proper roast dinner includes Yorkshire pudding. That's the best bit.
