One of my most memorable moment in England was when we visited City of Lincoln. It was one sunny afternoon in July 2011 when we decided to visit Lincoln’s finest tourist spots and attractions. We first visited and invaded the very famous Lincoln Cathedral that was featured in Tom Hanks’ film, The Da Vinci Code. It is the 3rd largest cathedral in England covering an area approximately 57,000 square feet. It is known as the tallest building in the world for almost 300 years and one of the finest Gothic building in Europe. It is free of charge to tour round the cathedral but if you want to explore more like touring round the roof, floor and tower you will pay an extra entry charge of £6 each for adults.

The next stop was Lincoln Castle just in front and few steps away from the cathedral. Unluckily, we didn’t get a chance to tour around the castle because it was having a major structural developments and restorations that time we visited. We only took photos of me and riding the old cannon outside the castle. I had fun!

Anyways, the day-out didn’t end there! Of course, I wont ever let my trip end without trying to go down and climb the famous Steep Hill. It is a popular historic street in Lincoln and it has been named officially as Britain’s Best Place awarded by the Academy of Urbanism. On the top of the hill is the entrance to the Cathedral Quarter and at the bottom is the Well Lane and also the way to Lincoln’s High Street. They have this handrail to assist people from climbing and a bench in the middle for you to rest before finishing the journey way back up. It was fun yet so tiring!!

Final destination was the high street! Shopping Galore Venue as I call it. Seen lots of shops that I have never ever heard before which is kind of exciting for me. We also stopped in a riverside because I have seen some Swans (also a first time) approaching cos they are thinking I have bread for them to eat.
Me and the Swans (cute!!)
I did enjoy much my day out in Lincoln. We didn’t accomplish to visit all in one but ended very memorable.
Don’t forget to visit City of Lincoln if you’re in the UK. You will surely love it.
I am a music lover and as everybody does I also love to sing but I don’t have a talent (very typical, eh? ). I love dancing in a very festive tune, I always fall in-love with the mellow/love songs every time I listen to them and I think everybody loves old, classic music as much as I do. Take a look in these collection of mine. All of those were given to me by my boyfriend as “PASALUBONG” every time he visits the PI.
Collection of Records
Collections of Records (Backside)
These are my collections of albums, records or CD’s of my favourite singers that started early last year. I guess, I am not the only one here who got a collectible similar as this but not as small and minimal as mine. Mine is still growing and still hoping for more additions to come but I only collect records and albums of artists that I like and adore most. I also collect this type of stuffs because it is nice to listen to the compilation of musics and songs of your favourite artist whilst cleaning, relaxing at home or even while driving a car. Anyway, my top favourite is Mariah Carey’s Greatest Hits Album as it contains Carey’s old songs. She is also the singer/artist that I idolize the most since high school and still wishing to see her in person like in a concert or a tour some day. I also have Bruno Mars; Doo Woops and Hooligans. Records of Jay Sean and Lily Allen (both British artists) plus the very funny duo who shuffles everyday and knew that they are sexy; Red Foo and Sky Blu of LMFAO.
In fact, one of my wishes is to own an Eliza Doolittle Album, a RiRi record, Lady Gaga, Blue and a Jessie J album “Who You Are”. Bit ambitious me! How about you? Are you fond of collecting items like I do? What do you collect?
