photos thus far.


I lived here. 
See that very tip-top room? That was mine.
{Bradford}


this is the place we saw a woman walking her ferret. 
it smelled. 
{Hilversum}


you turn left right at the shadow to get to our house.
{Hilversum}


this is the first house I lived in, in the Netherlands. 
we had the top floor, and 
see the little rectangle window, right behind the street lamp? 
that's where Abigail was born.
{Hilversum}


we visited a Scots church today. 
and after a short discussion, we decided that this was a fragment
of the bomb that blew up the original church 
during WWII. 
{Rotterdam} 


{Skipton}


fish and chips, of course. 
{Skipton}


I've been to Skipton Castle so many times. 
Beautiful, isn't it?

My friend Claire and I bought some rhubarb and
custard last week. 
It's now my favorite candy. 
{Skipton}


a little off on the focus (silly 50mm lens), but it gives you
an idea of how many bikes there are. 
{Hilversum}


this was the park directly behind our house on Laangstraat. 
so many hours spent there. 
{Hilversum} 


overlooking the Yorkshire area.

this is the pub in Skipton that we used to eat at. 
one of the places I remember well.

of course, the quintessentially British phone booth.

a refugee fair in Bradford. 
that's Sambalifax on stage.

downtown: charity shops, charity shops, and more charity shops.

this mosque is new and massive and beautiful.

we might have walked through a wedding/wedding photos. *cringe*

more of Lister Park. 
{Bradford}


we only lived in Bradford during the winter. 
consequently, I had no idea that you could play in this water. 
{Bradford}


the water is so green.  
{Bradford}


again, the boats were always in during the winter, so it was never like this. 
{Bradford} 


this was always my favorite swing at Lister Park. 
{Bradford}

so yeah. that's been my week. we're here in Holland until Sunday, and then we head on 
to Brussels. It's been great so far.

  8. It looks beautiful. I've lived in England all my life, but never ventured very far. Bradford looks beautiful though, and it's fun to see the similarities between there and my town--like, so many charity shops, the odd phone box, and lots of pubs.

  12. Great photos per usual, Katie. You are not helping with my wanderlust dilemma.

    That green water doesn't look safe! That's safe?! Green water in my mind = mossy water = slimy water = ew.
