My Year on the Metro: A Review

Since starting the blog I've always been looking for new and interesting things to write about. A lot of the local stuff I've done like the Newcastle upon Tyne walking tour and Ouseburn pub crawl have both done consistently well and I enjoy creating content that people find useful.
