We keep going on about where we are going, what we are doing and such like but maybe we should start this story at home…..Where are we from?
The simple answer is Lincoln, it has not always been home for both of us but might has well of been. Lincoln is a cathedral city in Lincolnshire (surprisingly) playing home to 250,000+ people including the surrounding towns and villages, considered part of Lincoln to most. As far as the main city goes you can pretty much get anywhere in no more than 3 miles, so not massive by any stretch of the imagination.
Pictures speak louder than words…….
Lincoln University only came around in the 90’s but has had a massive effect on the surrounding area in the center of town. Student housing and university buildings now take up a large area of the city. The fact the center of Lincoln is so small makes it a popular choice for students as it’s so easy to get accustomed to and still has everything you could need.
The Visit Lincolnshire website says ‘The eclectic and charming mix of heritage against a modern city atmosphere makes Lincoln an accessible and inviting alternative UK city break destination.’The main attraction in Lincoln will forever be the cathedral quarter and there will always be a group of tourists staring up at the cathedral, castle and various other buildings in the area snapping away.
Lincoln is Lincoln because it is but to us its home because of the people here,friends and family are what make it home and without them it wouldn’t be the same. So of course we’ll miss the place but the people here are what make it our home.
