When I visit a new place I always think to myself could I imagine living here? When I visited Liverpool recently the answer was a big fat ‘yes’!
It has the metropolitan vibe that I am realising is much more me than remote country-side is (although I am happy to visit there, of course). I love being near people, even if I’m not directly interacting with them and Liverpudlians are REALLY friendly too – my reserved southern sensibilities were well and truly shaken by all the smiles, waves and chattering. (Plus, I’ll never get tired of hearing a Liverpool accent).
The architecture is a mix of the Victorian grandiose and the modern and new and it all works together beautifully – plenty to photograph.
And of course there’s the little matter of THE BEATLES to contend with whilst you’re there. You may have heard of them…
BEATLES, BEATLES, BEATLES! I bet it gets a bit unbearable if you’re have to live with it on a day-to-day basis – or maybe you get Beatle-blindness? As a ‘day tripper’ though (ha ha ha) I was rather taken with it all. We were way too mean to pay the admission to the actual Beatles museum, so we made do with a Beatles-themed Starbucks and the Beatles section of the (totally fab and groovy) Liverpool Museum.
So yes, a big thumbs up from me – Liverpool rocks!
