My English memories: Ipswich

Ipswich, England

Ipswich

I have been feeling rather nostalgic lately. Maybe because it’s ten years since my work & life experience in England. During that time I explored as much as I could of East Anglia which is where I lived. Ipswich was one of the first cities I visited. I went there by train for a day trip without a fixed plan of what to do and see. After this first day trip I visited Ipswich again to meet up with some new acquaintances but I haven’t really been to any museums or done any proper sightseeing. What I have done actually was to shop at Primark šŸ™‚ I know, I know, there are a lot of people who belittle this brand but I still have a top I bought for only 2Ā£Ā ten years ago.

Ipswich is the biggest town in East Anglia and it’s situated on the estuary of the river Orwell. The first thing I noticed on my day trip to Ipswich when compared to other smaller towns in Suffolk was the number of people in the streets and a greater feel of cosmopolitanism. I came across the Ancient House with its beautiful pargetingĀ  and the Town Hall. I liked the old houses on the high street and the choice of shops. I also saw Ipswich’s waterfront and the marina. It was a leisurely day trip for sure.

Squirrels, sheep, green parks, fields, tea,cute cottages, state homes, changeable weather, beautiful countryside towns, London, pubs, salt&vinegar crisps, cider, toffee, great shopping, friends, love, sadness, change…..
These are some of my English bitter-sweet memories. I’ll probably blog about all the different towns that I’ve visited in England but for the time being here are some of my photos:
