Dec 20, 2015 - I surf now. On Couches

Alright y'all, This is going to (hopefully) be a quick update. I decided to try couchsurfing for a little bit around the holidays since I'm not working and it saves loads of money since, you know, I just crash on a couch somewhere. It's not as scary as it sounds and I'm only replying to people who have aquired a fair amount of reviews on the app and who actually post pictures that aren't obviously stock photos. My mom thinks I'm basically meeting strangers in alleyways and crashing in their cardboard box home alongside them, busking and...

Oct 13, 2015 - Beatles Magical Mystery Tour: Liverpool

On Tuesday, October 13th, Eric, Walt and I flew to Liverpool on Ryan Air for only Euro 20 RT per person. It was an interesting bus tour, and a nice way to see Liverpool too. Eric drove us out to the dock and the bus took us to the Beatles family homes, historic places, and historic nightclubs. It was again a beautiful day, and we were very lucky. The pictures tell it all, and these Beatles fans were very happy !!

Aug 19, 2015 - Liverpool-All Beatles all the time

August 19-Meet the Beatles We drove from Chester to Liverpool, heading for the Albert Dock where our Beatles experience would start. After a few false starts in downtown Liverpool, we found the parking garage and headed over to the Beatle Story. This is a museum that tells the story of the Beatles and many of the important people around them, contains a lot of Beatles memorabilia, and gives a real good sense of the chronology of the Beatles success. One of the most interesting things I learned was that the Beatles played the Cavern Club in...

Apr 27, 2015 - Liverpool & Peak District

Manchester & Liverpool 25.04.15 Vom 24.-27.4.15 bekam ich Besuch von meiner Cousine Sarah. Wir hatten vereinbart, dass ich sie an der Bushaltestelle abholen würde, an der der Bus aus London zu halten plante. Leider hatte aber dieser Bus eine Stunde Verspätung und entschied sich (um Zeit zu sparen), Sarah und die anderen Passagiere einfach an irgendeiner anderen Haltestelle im doch recht weitläufigen Loughborough rauszulassen. So hatten also weder sie noch ich eine Ahnung, wo in Loughborough sie sich befand... Danke NationalExpress :-)! Am...

Apr 10, 2015 - Liverpool

Well it was time to say goodbye to our fantastic Framily in Hereford and head out to the rest of the United Kingdom. We certainly have been spoilt by our hosts and there were a few tears when we left. Tonight we are in Liverpool after checking out the local Football grounds. Great to hang out where all the great players have been. Its great to be on the road with Rover who now has a few extra things - thanks uncle phill. We have a little fridge in the car but everytime you turn the car off the windscreen wipers go - lots of laughs. Hope...

Apr 19, 2014 - Liverpool

We did not get to visit much of Glasgow. We arrived early evening from the highlands of Scotland, had dinner at the hotel & were up, headed to Liverpool by 8 the next morning. We stopped at Gretna Green, an old blacksmith shop in Scotland that was popular with couples who would elope from London to escape their arranged unions and cross the border into Scotland with their true love to get married. On south from there, we left the freeway and drove into the Lake District National Park to the charming village of Grasmere, the home of William...

Sep 19, 2013 - Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever

We were sad to see Ireland fade in the distance as our ferry headed east to Wales. Ireland has been one of our favorite places. Our first few days in Wales were spent in the resort town of Betwsy-y-coed located in Snowdonia National Park. We hiked everyday often in the rain. We then headed north to Liverpool. Liverpool has gone through a lot of redevelopment in the past ten years with a new wharf and port area and vibrant city center. I was surprised at the number of tourists walking around the city with their city maps and cameras....

Sep 15, 2013 - First Fun Day at Sea

Sunday, September 15 Somewhere in the Irish Sea on our way to Liverpool Keep in mind that it is today Sunday, but I am writing about yesterday, Saturday - the same goes for all travel blogs. Edith and I went to bed and left our door to the patio open for the fresh air (air conditioner goes off when door is open). We fell asleep to the waves and the fresh air so Edith got up at 12:30 AM because she said it was too loud and shut the door. We both kept waking up every hour and finally after Edith reading the ships daily newsletter and her...

Jun 25, 2013 - Liverpool

I spent a day in Liverpool. Its as interesting as last time, but I think with even more to see, I did the hop on hop off bus (of course!) I was going to do the Ferry ride again, as it was raining the last time (2004) but for some reason the service had been cancelled for the day. So I went off to the top of Radio Tower instead. When or if the liver birds fall down, that will be the e3nd of Liverpool..so the legend goes.. Fantastic views, in spite of a bit of haze. We were told that on really clear days you can see Mt Snowden, and the...

Jun 5, 2013 - Kids: The UK starts with a BANG! August 2012

Kids Blog I have just discovered that I have a new talent!! I can type whilst Jem drives as we travel the motorways of the UK! Only motorways mind, as I tried it on some windy, narrow road in the Lakes District and soon found there is a difference! Suddenly I had a new car activity and I keenly engaged the kids to talk their travel diary to me. Below is what they said about some of the events they have experienced over the past 7 months. We have many more motorway journeys coming up so I hope to catch up on all my months of blogs but in the...

May 7, 2013 - The Beatles Story

On Tuesday the 7th I had my pre-booked tickets for The Beatles Story right on Albert Dock. The only difficult part was waiting for them to open their doors. In the morning I went out to the riverside and took some photos of the Mersey River and the dock area. The Beatles Story was beyond anything I imagined. It is a self-guided tour that you walk through with headphones on listening to narration that takes you through the major events of the Beatles' history and career. The museum is underground, so it spreads out and seems to go on...
