2 Days in England

This past weekend I traveled to Liverpool and Manchester, England. I had previously only been to London, so I was excited to see a different part of England. It didn’t disappoint! The main attraction in Liverpool is that it is the Beatles hometown, so we took a 2.5 hour taxi tour around the city that stopped at all things important in the formation of the Beatles. For some reason, I was expecting Liverpool to look really industrial, but it was actually beautiful and has lots of other attractions other than seeing Beatles landmarks. It didn’t hurt that it was incredibly warm-by far the warmest weather I have felt since Texas.

Manchester is the home of Manchester United Football Club (that’s a soccer team, for all you Americans ;)), and we toured their museum and stadium. I could have lived without the museum, but touring the stadium was fun and interesting. Manchester is also a lively city that I wouldn’t have minded spending more time in.

Here are some photos of my weekend:

Some of the Olympic soccer matches were played here

My favorite part of the museum was seeing Ronaldo’s gear…

What a pretty stadium and pretty grass

Manchester had cool buildings…

…like the National Football Museum…

…and this pub. Looks like it was Happy Hour!
