We really do like Newcastle Upon Tyne, and not just because our daughter has been there for the past 5 years, firstly as a Netballer from New Zealand playing as an import in the UK Superleague team Northumbria, and then as a student of Law at Northumbria University (and still playing netball), but because it is a vibrant city with plenty to see and do, good streetscapes and roads (although I did get captured in the one-way system which was no fun), quality restaurants (and the girl tells us nightlife too - but we didn't venture out to see the Newcastle after dark dress code). All in all we found plenty to do and enjoy.
I visited the Laing Gallery which had a couple of interesting exhibitions and some surprising works in the collection.
The graduation came and went so swiftly for four years dedicated study to be almost obscene, however a great night out with her best friends and family topped off the reasons for coming this far. Now to renew a visa and to find a job are the priorities.
Congratulations once more. So happy to have been there on the day.
