packing my bags!

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!

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
