    Wow, PERFECT timing! I'm off to York tomorrow morning and I'm staying until friday... I'm going to visit a friend, but now he'll think I have an ulterior motive for the stay! haha

    I love York, one of my favourite places in this country so it's always nice to visit. It should be even better this time, if I can get involved in any of the events. I'll try and make it to the minster for the fly-past, armed with my camera! Thanks for sharing this Nick.
