In November last year I extended a business trip to a weekend trip in Liverpool. The weather was just starting to get very cold but there was no rain and the sun was shining most of the time. It was a good weather to explore the city.
And because it was almost Christmas already, the city centre had a big open-air market that comes alive every night, with colors and lights that will you back to your childhood (think colored candies, warm soup on a cold night and colorful lights).
Shame that I was not able to explore the city as much as I wanted to because I got sidetracked by the many beautiful products laid out for my eyes at the market, Primark and Liverpool One shopping centre (I am a girl after all – I love shopping too).
But of course when in Liverpool, one cannot NOT visit The Beatles Museum which has an entrance that can easily be missed. The museum is actually called The Beatles Story and it is located in Albert Dock. (http://www.beatlesstory.com)
Prior to visiting Liverpool I don’t know anything about the Beatles except that they were behind some classic hits and that they earned the ire of some fans because of comparing themselves to Jesus. Three hours of staying inside the museum and I had new idols, four musical geniuses who are too young to handle success and the life that comes with it.
