north yorkshire.

after our hop, skip, and a jump to frankfurt we were on a plane to manchester, england. there we caught a train to harrogate (about 1.5 hours away), a quaint town in north yorkshire. we only had three nights there (one which was to attend the united states navy ball - oh, la la), so we wanted to take full advantage of the harrogate nightlife upon arrival. as soon as we arrived to our flat, we made a quick wardrobe change, met up with friends, and we were on our way.

let me tell ya something. harrogate people know how to party. the nightlife reminded me so much of my days in college (let's go mountaineers!). some clubs stayed upon until 4am and people were going crazy! we sure had a good time ;)

besides the nightlife, harrogate is full of culture and beauty with its luscious gardens, rich architecture, and fabulous shopping. while we were there we also took a drive to the city of leeds (25 minutes away) and to knaresborough (10 minutes away). i was going to post those pictures today but i'll hold off until tomorrow. this post is already picture overload and i didn't want to make it too unbearable :)

side-of-the-road view. not too shabby.

i had too.
p.s. taylors of harrogate tea is my absolute favorite! i believe you can find it here in the states too. i stocked up while i was there again in january :)

i was able to revisit harrogate again this past year in january and it was just as fabulous as my time here in 2009. if you ever plan to take a trip to england, or if you're in the yorkshire area, then i definitely recommend making a stop here. there is so much to see!
