Well, more like packing my small backpack… I’m going on a short 2-day-long trip to Birmingham (UK) in a few days! I have a small business commitment for a few hours early on Wednesday morning, which means that I get paid travel and accommodation expenses! Now, I learned pretty early on that business trips are not too much fun, they’re usually simply tiring and don’t leave too much space for fun, relaxing, and other activities we usually think of when someone says the word ‘travel’. However, this one should be fairly relaxed, and I have booked my train ticket for pretty early on the previous day – so I get a whole afternoon and evening to explore! I can’t wait! I’m envisioning reading on the train, a long walk, a nice tea in some cozy cafe when I get tired (or when the rain forces me inside – yes, it’s the UK, I’m counting on rain), a quick visit to a local gallery and maybe a pint in a nearby pub… And of course, lots of photos, so I can share my exprience with you! :)
Now, the only thing is – I don’t know anything about Birmingham. So, if you’ve ever been, or just happen to know about its attractions, please shout out! I’d like to know about nice places to walk around, interesting areas of the city, special don’t-miss cafes, cooky buildings and, naturally, all things craft and yarn related!
