It all started on Thursday, we drove down to Edinburgh from Aberdeen and spent the night at Steven’s place, eating noodles (me) and crispy duck (him) Chinese take away.
Next day we work up early in the morning and with much excitement and butterflies in my stomach we took the train to Newcastle; the city I spent my years as an MSc student, the city I loved the most and the city I made some very good friends.
Two and a half hours later and we found ourselves in my favourite city, wandering around the Bigg Market before visiting the Kafeneon, a Greek restaurant that has the best moussaka in the city. For what it matters, Steven loved it!
Newcastle University campus is one of the best attraction to see if you ever visit this beautiful city. As a graduate with great memories from my time as a student I wanted to show Steven every single building and to my surprise things have changed a lot in the past five years. Buildings were renovated and many spaces were decorated with abstract art.
As we were walking via the main gate I couldn’t help it but have memories of me and my classmates spending our lunch breaks together, nostalgia hit me hard and so I took my time to cherish all these mixed emotions I was experiencing.
Newcastle, I am in owe of you.
