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...

May 6, 2013 - Liverpool

On Monday May 6 I had to bid my friend Judy goodbye. I'm so glad we had a chance to meet, since we've been corresponding for years and years. I hopped on the train in Birmingham and spent approximately 2 hours traveling to my next stop - Liverpool. I arrived in the afternoon with enough time to get checked in to my hotel and get settled in. I took a cab from the train station to Albert Dock where my hotel was situated. After unpacking I took a stroll around Albert Dock and peeked into some of the shops. The hotel (Jurys Inn) was very nice...

Jun 23, 2012 - Beatle mania!!!

I reached the land of the Beatles! Liverpool! Took the train from Milton Keynes central to Liverpool lime street. When arrived at the train station we took a taxi to a mansion of a house, where we will be staying. We are staying with the "Beaver" family. The house looks like a classic English estate. White Stucco with dark wood trim in the exterior, and dark maple everything in the Interior. The house is about 100 years old. It's beautiful! Today we went to mostly everything. Took a peak at the cavern were the Beatles once played, as well...

Apr 30, 2012 - England - Chester & Liverpool

22nd April 2012 (Bed No 22) A two hour drive and we were in Chester one of England's beautiful historic cities, located in the North West of England. A visit to the information centre gave us lots of things to see and do. As we only had a few hours we decide to spend the time walking around the Chester Walls which are the most complete circuit of a Roman and Medieval defensive town wall in England. The 2 mile circular walk around the historic city gave us a vivid reminder of what a medieval fortified town would have been like. Time had...

Apr 23, 2012 - Liverpool

Not a very successful day but I did satisfy my curiosity about Liverpool. I had to wait until 9:30am for the local library to open so I could send yesterday’s story which went off OK but I couldn’t get my e-mails, even through web-mail. Sometimes Bigpond is off the air for a while so I didn’t fuss too much. I’d thought of catching the train to Liverpool because I’d noticed there was a major station near the museum but the internet site said there was lots of parking in the city centre area so I decided to drive. I went the fastest way, down...
