Manchester Trip Day-1: 24 Dec 2018

Bismillaahirrohmaanirrohiim,

Finally, I can continue blogging our winter break trip last year. The last two weeks I have been busy doing daily challenge from my online parenting class. I have about two weeks time to finish this documentation before facing another daily challenge next month 🙂

We finally arrived in Manchester by 8pm and went straight to our booked apartment. We stayed here for the next following four days. This was our second time coming to this city, so we kinda had idea what and where to go.

Good Morning Manchester

Today we decided to explore the northeastern part of Manchester, as some bloggers suggest in their blog.

We planned to have our lunch in Cafe Lahore, a buffet restaurant that has very good reviews, somewhere in Oldham. But we forgot that as today was Christmas eve, they had their arrangement and by the time we reached there, there were not open yet. But alhamdulillaah at the end we had our all time family fave lunch, Subway 🙂

Next stop is Saddleworth. A civil parish of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham that comprises of several villages and hamlets, including Uppermill and Delph, villages where your eyes will be spoiled by breathtaking views and comforting surroundings.

We decided to walk down to Saddleworth High Street to have a cup of coffee and feel the festivity vibe.
