We spent the last few days in Liverpool, UK. Originally, we planned this trip because we wanted to attend a meet-and-greet with Michael Bolton, but a few days ago we got news the event was cancelled.
Having booked our Eurostar and Virgin trains tickets however, plus made a reservation for a hotel, we decided to go anyway. However you look at it, it's some days away from home!
And we were lucky with the weather. We arrived in Liverpool with hail and sleet, but the following day was quite sunny although windy.
As I've already written in my travel blog, there is enough to see in Liverpool. Beatles fans can do the Beatle experience, and there are some good musea too. There's a Tate Modern, a slavery museum, one about the history, ... You can make nice walks around the waterfront as well.
For those who love shows, there's the Empire Theatre, where most major companies will tour for a couple of weeks or even a few days.
And then there's the shopping! Liverpool One is one of the biggest shopping places we've seen already, and if you can't find it there, you won't find it anywhere. Of course we ended up with more luggage than we left home!
An additional touch was that it was Valentine's weekend, so everything was decorated with pink hearts and flowers.
