Although the return train ticket cost 17 pound, I went to Manchester anyway. I took the morning train from Harrogate, switched at Leeds station and arrived to Manchester after 2 hours.
One thing I don't really like about the train station is that the train schedule does not reflect much on the sign board. It all announced by the control center, which I find it hard to know what platform/train should I be waiting. Seems like people in UK prefer listening than reading.

This article is rather late because I was busy on my wedding for the past couple of weeks. Anyway, I'll post my wedding photos later but now here are the photos when I was in UK (on business trip) and on day trip to the famous York Minster.
We rented a car and our plan was headed to Bayron bay, the most easterly point of Australia. But before that, we went to Honeyworld and Tropical Fruit World, except we didn't enter the farm. Why? Because we need get the ticket and we think the price is rather over our budget. Anyway, we stopped by couple of beaches on our way and in the end, we reached to the Bayron Bay lighthouse.

Unable to locate tropical fruit world? Look for the huge green fruit sign.

My favorite picture of the lighthouse. The dark cloud is just nice as the lighthouse is more standout in the picture.
Have I been to the most easterly point of Australia? Here's the prove.
South Bank has a park that's worth visiting because it has an artificial beach. There also some event has been held here, which I believe there is a convention center nearby. A circular stage that is also located just nearby the beach, where we found there are people practicing their performance.
For the animal lover, Australia Zoo is where you want to stop by when traveling in Queensland. The entry ticket is rather expensive (It's around AUD50) compare to other animal park. Nevertheless, it does has it's value like the animal show and the place is huge so there are more animal to watch for. Even animal is not your cup of tea, finding out the background about the famous "The Crocodile Hunter", who is one of the icon of Australia, proves to be worth while.
They said the zoo has fierce crocodile and what I saw was this.
Until I saw this.
The brochure in my hand sure attracts it to take photo with me.
It's a fake but the size of the jaw looks incredible.
