Before i blog about Scotland and Liverpool, please allow me to introduce this lovely country side. This i must blog before i forgot the details.
Many may not heard of Whitby but the world biggest whaling activity was once here. Located in North Yorkshire, very near to famous Scarborough.
Captain Cook also set sail here before he found Australia. The remains of the famous Count Dracula was also believed to be buried under the grounds of Whitby Abbey. Hohoh..but i think it’s purely fiction. Most English people regard Whitby as the most beautiful seaside town in England. So i went along with the uni trip. A total of 5 coaches went, the most number in any trips it organized.
Anyway, it was a very frustrating journey there as we was stuck in a jam for 4 hours, which leaves us with only 4 hour to explore Whitby!! Blimey, we had to forgo the beach because there’s simply not enough time 🙁
Seaside places are famous for their seafood. Whitby is best known for their Fish n chips, scampi and oysters. This is Uk #2 fish n chips according to the plaque in front of the shop. Magic Chips. The # 1 is Magpie which is too full.

Took a boat trip that costed 2pd each. Consider cheap when they bring us out quite far out in the sea. As mentiond, lovely weather. Wasted we only had 4 hours. T______T *click for bigger image*
So long Whitby, if fate allows, we shall meet again 🙂 *click for my current wallpaper*
ps: I think all dogs goes to Whitby because i saw soo many different breeds here i was overwhelmed with joy. The people sure love their mutt. My camera was full of the doggie photo.
