This year, Ron's Aunt Shelly and Uncle Eric stopped by to visit us as a detour on their international anniversary trip. And on top of that, they were also celebrating Aunt Shelly's 50th birthday! So needless to say, we owed them a fantastic time in Newcastle. This, of course, would have been incomplete without some authentic British pub food and a tour of the Newcastle Castle.
We also spent a day exploring the coast at Tynemouth, which included pub fish and chips and a tour of the Priory. On the way back, we stopped in for a classy afternoon tea at the beautiful Great British Cupcakery.
And then, it was game day: Newcastle vs Man United. We started the day with Sunday Roast at the Town Wall (which was actually the first place that Ron and I had the traditional dish 3 years ago too). After some pre-game drinks at Rosie's pub, we headed to the match - the stadium is conveniently located right across the street from our new flat. And then, we were thrilled to watch Newcastle pulled off an unfavored victory! (Aunt Shelly, however, was most shocked by the language of some Geordie children sitting nearby.) After calming down from all our excitement, we finished off the night with Indian dinner and a birthday cake for Aunt Shelly.
