Short break

After a week without access to servers, Mee and I started this week with three days off. These three days were the days that I could have and next week onwards will be hectic. Initially, we didn’t plan on going anywhere. But because I had too much time on hand when the servers were down, Mee and I realised that we could actually go to Hull, a place which we frequently talked about of going but never found a chance until now. Well, Mee went to University of Hull about nine years ago and she was quite keen on showing me the place. When we were about to book the hotel, Mee thought that a night in Hull would be sufficient and we soon came up with Manchester as our next city. It’s all very last minute and we’d only managed to book the both hotels like a day before our trip.

It took about 4 hours to drive to Hull and from Hull, it’s about 1.5 hours to Manchester. Somehow, it made me realise that I needed to find out my car’s breakdown cover details which I didn’t have it recorded anywhere. I then saw an email about life insurance no medical exam and realised that I had forgot about the travel insurance which I bought before Mee and I went to Australia for holiday early this year. I seriously need to find the travel insurance document. We might plan another short trip during the August Bank holiday.

Anyway, the trip to Hull and Manchester was good. Mee was quite happy showing me around the University of Hull. She even saw one of her academic lecturers. He didn’t recognise her but he didn’t mind chatting with us. A lot has changed over the nine years and Hull city centre has three shopping centres and a long high street.  Just the night before going to Manchester, Mee and I decided to visit the Old Trafford Stadium and go on the Museum and Stadium Tour. Manchester United is not the club that I support but it’s still a nice experience visiting the famous Theatre of Dreams. The tour was good as the guide brought us to the dugout place, the dressing room, the seating areas as well as the history of Manchester United.

I am not sure about Mee but I always thought that short break could be nice and relaxing just like the three days of Hull and Manchester. I will definitely be planning more short breaks from now on.
