Anyway, this post is about the last segment of our first part of break: Liverpool, England. I had been dying to go to Liverpool and it was a must see stop for me while I was over here. This is mainly because I have an amazing taste in music (if I do say so myself) and am in love with The Beatles. As most of you are probably aware, Liverpool is where The Beatles got their start, being the city where George, John, and Paul grew up and met each other. So obviously there are a lot of Beatles related landmarks to see whilst visiting the city. Unfortunately Becca and I did not have a whole lot of time in the city to see everything I wanted but that just means I'll have to go back one day.
We arrived in Liverpool at 9 in the morning. We were going to be taking a bus out of Liverpool back to Glasgow that afternoon so we managed to find a bus that took us close to the bus station we needed. Once at the bus station we asked where we could store our luggage so we wouldn't have to lug it around all day, the closest one was at the train station around the corner so we made our way over there and put our luggage away. Then we attempted to find a map of the city that was at all helpful, and were not very successful. I had written down the addresses for the main places I wanted to see, Mendips, Paul's house, George's house, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, The Cavern Club, and Casbah Coffee House. Unfortunately we were on the opposite side of the city than a lot of these places and did not have a whole lot of time to try to find a good map and find them. We decided to walk towards the dock because I had discovered that there was a museum there dedicated to The Beatles and the lives of their members. We were not entirely sure if it would actually be open since it was Easter Sunday but we thought that they might have information about some other stuff to see that related to the band.
