Ooh, where did you live in Northern England? I was born in Ashington, grew up in York, and lived in Newcastle for a while too.

I did a semester at the Queen's campus of Durham U in Stockton-on-Tees. My first few nights in the UK was spent in York. I thought it was beautiful!

I love Durham. I used to head down there once a year or so from Newcastle to walk by the river and visit those lovely old pubs...
