Out Strolling the Neighbourhood.


Thursday, we got our package from the post office that contained out application form for our National Insurance numbers. We went to the library and photocopied the documents they wanted. Then we went home and filled out our applications and went to the post office to mail them.

After we went to the post office we went exploring to see what hotels were nearby for our friends and family to stay at. There were a few places they could stay. People could stay at our house depending on how many were coming to visit. During our searching we found a beautiful church. We stopped and took photos.

                                                     

Then we headed back home and had Linda McCartney’s veggie pies for dinner, they were delicious. These pies are something we don't have back in Canada so they were kind of a novelty.  Then we sat back, relaxed and read our books from the library. Make use of your local library. For awhile we were buying all our books but it seems pointless if the library already has a bunch you would like to read.
Friday, we made our way to our bank which was in a nearby town. Our route brought us through some of the trails in Harborne. We probably wouldn't have found out about these trails if we didn't need to go to the bank. We needed to pull some cash out of our Canadian bank account to put in our British in order to cover bills and stuff. We were hoping we would find jobs soon.

It would have been more convenient if our bank was a bit closer to us but it is hard to complain about the nice walk.




It took us half an hour to walk there. We did a little shopping and walking up and down the high street. Harbourne is a very nice little area of Birmingham. We were glad we were brought to this part of town. Harbourne High Street looks a lot nicer than the area around our house. They have lots of restaurants and pubs there and the neighbourhood is very clean.
Again, we saw another beautiful church. They are everywhere!



We also saw an old school. Then we headed to the library to chat on Facebook since we didn't have the internet at our house yet. Once the library closed we headed home for dinner and to read our books.

Thank you for reading. If you enjoyed this post and want to see more of our neighbourhood, check out our post on "Weoley Castle Walk in Harborne."

  2. It looked like a very nice day for a stroll. I wouldn't mind a veggie cake it looked good. Traveling to other countries is an area I lack in but, I would love to sample the food for sure when I visited.

  3. Looks like this was a nice, quiet sort of day - walking together and hanging out, spending some time surrounded by books in a library, then home for some quiet reading. What could be better?

  4. Churches are everywhere in England, it's insane. And they are all giant and pretty! It seems that, even though it's 30 minutes from you, the walk was nice and the street is even nicer!
