A few more pictures from our break in Manchester.
My sister Serin travelled up with us to Manchester as she had been staying at ours for a few days previously, viewing a Uni close to us and hanging out with Wilf and I. It was super useful to have an extra pair of hands with our luggage and buggy and I kept thinking 'how do people travel with more than one child??' Immediately you are outnumbered (if only one parent is traveling) and if you have a toddler like mine that loves to run FAST then what would you do whilst looking after the other? Parents of more than one, hats off to you!
We stayed at the Youth Hostel, something my parents love to do. They are a lot more fancy now than the backpacker type image they had in previous years and Wilf and I got a family room for around £70 for two nights. We have a YH card that was on offer when I renewed our family rail card, something else I would totally recommend if traveling by train a fair bit. You can get a third of your ticket price which really does help and we travel by train a lot!
We didn't get to try out a tram whilst we were up there, I actually had never seen one before and my dad laughed at me when I told him I thought they were unable to stop (I figured they were just like scalextrics and had no break capacity..) but I think it would be quite a novelty if we visit again.
It's fun going on all these trips to places I might never have before on my sisters uni visits. I'm really eager to find out where she picks.
The pictures above are of my dad, younger brother and of course Wilf. My brother Madog and Wilf are only ten years apart in age, they could almost be brothers! My dad insisted on letting geese eat out of his hand, even when one bit him!
