Day 7: Walking Newcastle
Newcastle upon Tyne Travel Blog› entry 8 of 60 › view all entries
Newcastle has a lot of hot girls. Like, everywhere. The town in beautiful. Woke up to find my only room-mate gone, but there was a drunk guy passed out in his place. Super. Apparently Sundays and Mondays at teh hostel are pretty low-key, because Saturday night my roommate couldn't find a single room in the entire city.
Take that back. The girls here are teh same as in the US, but they dress way cooler (leggings! flats!), and they're all skinny(-ish) from all that walking all the time. Their faces aren't always good. But, we all know I like skinny/fit. Over-ruled.
I'm starting to love Europe more by the second.
Saw the Newcastle Brewery and Newcastle Stadium. Didn't drink any beer. I know, how sad, right? I don't even know the difference between a brown ale and a traditional ale. Maybe I'll be a beer connosieur by the time I get back. By the way, 1664 is pretty good.
I'm gonna have to start getting outgoing here real soon or this trip is gonna turn me into a hermit. I sat drinking beer by myself last night until I HAD to say something an hour later. No one understands me the first time I say anything ("excuse me?"). I think I'm going to use a pseudo-British accent for the remainder of the UK. With a tinge of Err-rish to it.
Subway is the cheapest way to eat here. No shit. Get the sub of the day for 1.99 pounds, which is exactly the same price as a pint of 1664 at a bar. And it's healthy!
The BALTIC museum of modern art? Mmmm, not so much. The Tate Modern spoiled me. The buildings are cool, though. I think that's a requisite for a modern art museum.
I'm starting to realize I am in love with art books in the museum visitor shops. They're so stylish and sexy. And expensive. And heavy.
Actually, never mind. Not completely in love, anyway.
