24th September 2019 York – A time travel experience to old England Whoever visits Jorvic (the Viking name for York), has to visit the Jorvic-Viking Centre and the time travel starts. With a combination of historical accuracy, imagination, craftsmanship and modern technology, the Centre realistically conveys the sights, sounds and even smells of Viking every-day life of the 10th century. As thrilling as Jorvic has been at that time - we (Maja and Malu) enjoyed today's York. We walk the medival cobbled narrow streets (called "snickelways"). Tiny gaps and unique houses... ...can be found everywhere in this charming town. At the Shambles Market (every day) you can buy fresh vegetables, eggs, poultry, fish, flowers... ...and everything comes from places around York. Aiming to the Minster we pass Minster Gates - a favoured venue for street musicians. Crowded though it maybe, the roads direction Minster remain a great mixture of history and presence. York Minster (completed in 1480) is the largest Gothic church in England, indeed in Europe. The Minster is thought to contain as much as half an acre (2'2020 m2) of glass in its windows! Humbly we reflect that the construction of the Minster was the work of 10 generations (about 240 years); what a time travel experience!
