24 hours in Blackpool has been amazing 🙂 I was a little nervous wearing my niqab in Blackpool. However, the people here have been welcoming. Everyone has treated me with respect. Cafe staff, taxi drivers and local shop workers have all been kind. I have been stared at a lot, but that is expected. The people of Blackpool are decent and good. Although I am a minority here, I feel comfortable. There was an incident outside Primark when a man of colour turned around and shouted batman. It did not upset me but shocked me a little. I’m trying to get used to such comments, but it isn’t easy.
BACK TO BIRMINGHAM
I finally left Blackpool. I took a train to Manchester then Birmingham. I missed the last train to London Euston which was at 11.10pm. My own fault as I wanted to eat Pakistani food and took an UBER to Ladypool Road. I had to book a hotel for the night.
