Where I Live Now

If you read my recent post on finding a graduate job, you will know that I have moved! I have now been living in Chester (Cheshire) for one week and have completed my first week of my new job.



Things are going really well so far; my housemates are really nice and I'm enjoying my job, though it's a trainee position so I have a lot to learn!

Not my street - I just liked the doors



Chester is a really lovely, if small, city. It is steeped in history, with walls surrounding the city remaining from the Roman Era which you can actually walk all the way round, and the frontage of all the shops in town dates back to Tudor times. It's unfortunately been pretty miserable weather so far but today the sun has come out and I have had a lovely stroll around town.



And perhaps best of all, there is a huge number of restaurants and bars that I am very much looking forward to trialling.

Have any of you been to Chester? Any recommendations for me?

    I've heard Chester is lovely, and who knows, you might meet the cast of Hollyoaks ;) x

    1. Thanks Emma, yeah I'm enjoying it so far :)

      It is really nice, and that was one of my first thoughts too haha. Had to look up to check if my memory from watching it years ago was correct!
