Day 52: Rest Day at Leeds

It is a rest day at Leeds. We were all tired, we had plans to visit Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland in next few days. We decided to take rest inspite of the heavy schedule to be completed before 12th July.

Leeds is a city in the northern English county of Yorkshire. On the south Bank of River Aire, the Royal Armouries houses the national collection of arms and artillery. It is about 350 kms. from London.

Leeds has one of the most diverse economies of all the UK’s main employment centres and has seen the fastest rate of private sector jobs growth of any UK city. It also has the highest ratio of private to public sector jobs of all the UK’s core cities, with 77% of its workforce working in the private sector.  

In 2012, we did a tour through Europe for about 11 days and traveled across 7 countries. Europe it is continent located entirely in Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Asia to the east, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It comprises western most part of Eurasia.

The population of Europe is 742 million. This is much lesser than 1.34 billion population of India. Europe is the third most populous continent in the world.
