Im From DurhamI am proud to say i am from one of the nicest places in england .
I dont think there is nothing better than going away for a while and forgetting the little things that make your hometown special .
when i served in the army for a while. i remember when i got discharged. the feeling of coming back home was amazing.
as you arrive into durham you can see the heights of one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. situated around old cobble streets.
I think the cathedral is one of the main things that make durham a special place . Thousands of tourists come here a year just to come and see the cathedral . people from china, america , everywhere and i only have to walk for twenty minutes or 5 minute bus drive and im there.
On a night i often sit on the cathedral wall and just absorb myself in the silence surrounding it. its beautiful i could sit there for hours just filling myself with peace , observing the views over the city that are in sight.
Durham to me is definitely a special place with centuries and centuries of history . it has beauty , it has the vitality of daily life and its also got peace and tranquility within minutes of the hussle and bussle of the market place . I may leave durham one day but i know for sure it will be a place i will never forget and will miss deeply .
