    York is a wonderful city.
    Trains, other than a visit to the museum, hold little interest for me, save for the odd photo of people doing silly things on them.
    The railway museum is worth a visit, even for non anoraks.

    I spend about 4 hours in the NRM each time I'm in York. Also the Castle Museum - love the Victorian Street. At The Minster, a half hour or so watching the stonemasons and then a visit to The Orb inside to see the latest progress on the stained glass.

    Out of York, Yorkshire Air Museum to step back into the World War II era. Also, if time permits. Ripon for a full day at Fountains Abbey. I'll be up there for two weeks later this year - staying in Ripon and doing day trips to Coldstones Cut, Thirsk, Skipton, Richmond Castle, Middleham Castle and a few more. Bus service out of Ripon is very good and lodgings are about 1/3 to 1/2 the price you pay in York.

    Not yet, Unkotare. I have only been here 30 days as of tomorrow, and I am still getting my bearings in the city where I am at. So much to do here, and even more opportunity. I will look into this Wuxi, though. Is that the Penying spelling, by the way? Just want to know I am Googling the right place.

    I did make one climb on May Day, since that is a holiday here. That was in the park at Tien Tai, in Zhejiang Province. I was expecting nothing special, but once getting there, I was amazed at the magnificence. It was harder than I was prepared for, and even more awe inspiring.

    Try Malham, if you enjoy walking.

    Camping with morning walks at first light are best.

    Then it's Australia for you! well outside or Florida, Arizona etc that is.

    No real need for Americans to travel overseas to anywhere, America has it all.

    Sun, sand, surf, snow, plains, mountains, forests, major theme parks, Hollywood etc etc etc.
    Snow looks great, but it's so cold, and wet...and has to be shovelled off driveways etc.
    Icy roads...bad news.

    Stockholm's a nice city.

    It's pretty weird walking around a city at 10pm with the sun still shining but nobody in the streets.

    Try July. The entire month there is no true dark at all. You get up at three in the morning for a 6am run, and realize your mistake. It's three o'clock, and it looks like dawn.
