It is the third day here in paradise and I am going to visit the Sefton Park today. It is the biggest park in Liverpool and I have heard there is a huge wrought iron Palm House.
Wow! What a building! I have been going around in the park for a few hours and right now I am sitting on a bench under a wonderful tree. I have forgot to tell you that my mother showed up at the hotel this morning. My mother is turning 48 tomorrow and I had a wish to celebrate her birthday with her here in Liverpool. Guess if I were lucky when she knocked on the door... She had a surprise to me: She had booked a bus tour called "Magical Mystery Tour". It is (of course) a bus tour with a few stops in Liverpool - all based on the story behind The Beatles.
Let me tell you a little about the Magical Mystery Tour. The tour started at Albert Dock and during two hours we saw all the places associated with John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison & Ringo Starr. We saw all their childhood homes, schools and also visited some places like Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. It was an amazing trip because the guide told us a lot of funny and unexpected things about the boys in The Beatles and they played Beatles-songs in the speaker which increased the atmosphere a lot.
The Magical Mystery Tour were finished just outside the Cavern Club, were The Beatles once started their career. We listened to some of The Beatles resident musicians. Some of them sounded just like John & Paul - wonderful!
I will end the travel blog here by telling you that I am not going to go back to Sweden. I have just fallen in love with this city and I will stay here until I will miss my friends at home to much. I will sleep the last night in my bed at the hotel and then me and my mother will move into our newly purchased apartment within a stone´s throw from Albert Dock. The funny thing is that I did not bought a return ticket, and today my mother told me she did not either...
What a surprise, right? It will be funny to see when I am going to Sweden again, because Liverpool is my home now.
