A Trip to Leicester

Hello! A couple of weeks ago I went to visit Reesha in her hometown of Leicester. It was so nice travelling there from Sheffield as it was a much shorter train journey than I was used to! I also realised that the trains to London have a lot nicer train carriages than I do when I travel home. I left a sunny Sheffield for a rainy Leicester and it was interesting to see the city that I could have gone to University in had I chosen to go there instead. I had such a lovely day despite the weather; one minute it was bright sunshine, the next minute it was chucking it down with rain! I met Reesha at the train station which was hard to navigate the way out of! Reesha then took me to her house and then she drove me into town. I definitely wouldn't have wanted to drive in the city- well done Reesha! We had a day filled with shopping and eating food, here are a few photos to share with you;

 We went to 'Turtle Bay' for lunch and the waitress was so nice! She chatted to us for a while about what we were up to for the day and then asked whether we liked spicy food or not (which I don't) and told us what would be best to order. I had a pulled chicken burger with fries, and even the fries had chilli powder on them!

 For dessert in the afternoon we went to 'Patisserie Valerie' and shared a chocolate mousse cake. It was a good job that we looked at what we wanted before we went in as they told us that they were all out of this one! I soon told him otherwise haha.
 For dinner Reesha took me to her favourite indian restaurant, 'Paprika' and I had my usual order of a chicken korma. 
These are just a couple of photos I took on a little walk that we took after our meal and before it rained! 

Thank you to Reesha for taking this photo! 

All in all I really enjoyed going to see one of my University friends in their hometown. She'll just have to come and visit me in Norwich now!

Have you been anywhere different recently?
