Do you know that feeling of glimpsing something interesting on a journey but not being able to stop? A number of times I've travelled by train from London to Edinburgh and seen a magnificant view of Durham Cathedral and Castle from the train window. One day, I kept on saying, I want to visit there.
Well, today, I am on my way by train to a conference and will actually get off the train in Durham and stay there for a time. The conference should be good and I am looking forward to learning from and contributing to it. But what I am childishly excited about is visiting Durham Cathedral - a place that has always drawn me, as it has drawn many tourists and pilgrims. At last I will get to visit and not just glimpse.
Will I be disappointed? I'll let you know in a few days.
