Christmas (mis)adventures in Newcastle!
In what was a first for my family, we decided to spend Christmas eve in the clouds, to spend our first Christmas abroad. We chose Newcastle as our Christmassy destination, thinking that it would be incredibly busy and full of people wandering around and celebrating the day in restaurants around the city.
When Christmas Day dawned, bright but bitterly cold, we realized we couldn't be more wrong - the city was spookily silent and deserted! We decided to wander about town until lunch, hoping to get some clues as to where everyone was.
...especially when it's feminist.
And went out to enjoy the still surprisingly quiet Newcastle by night. Although definitely not what we were expecting, being together on one of my favourite holidays of the year was more than enough to make my day!
