Hi there again,
I’m in London again for the second time in ten days, and trust me you don’t want to know why I am here again.
But I was thinking of all the places in England I have been to and what took me there and what I liked most about them. Sadly the list is very short and as usual, I will keep it in bullet points…. enjoy
Ormskirk: small picturesque village, perfect for a uni town because its far enough away from distractions but near enough so you have somewhere to blow off steam when the studying gets tough. Not very much to buy except on the twice a week market days, sadly the town thins out horribly when the Edge Hill Uni is on vacation 🙁
Liverpool: nice city, very many sights to see. My personal favourite is the docks. There are loads of very interesting museums and art galleries if that’s your thing, you can even follow the life of the Beattles, right here. And then ofcourse there are the Liverpool FC and Everton football stadiums.
Manchester: one word..PERFECT. Metropolitan, picturesque, huge but not confusing like London which i will discuss in a bit, there’s loads of enormous universities so the city never thins out, not like that kind of city even needs a uni to be full. If I had to pick where I’d live in England, it would definitely be Manchester, as if that were not enough, it is the home of the greatest football club in history MANCHESTER UNITED!!!!
London: beautiful, splendid, wonderful sights, massive city with a very complex and expensive transportation system. Its the perfect place for the occasional holiday or the hard cracking business visit, but if and only if I had my say, I wouldn’t live in London. If you do come here however, you must see Trafalgar square, the Buckingham palace, London bridge, the Eye..oo i could go on and on but I’m sure by now you get it!
Bournemouth: was here on an away weekend with some friends, went clay shooting in a nearby town, wonderful place for a night out, a pebble beach even though I prefer the traditional sand beaches. All in all, it was a very ok kind of place…
SouthPort: I loved the beach and the pier. Southport is somewhere between a city and a town! Quite large and metropolitan, but without the hustle bustle of Manchester and London. Southport has lots of nice shops, interesting recreation, a park and many other sights. It’s the perfect place for a romantic getaway…if you know what I mean 😉
Well that’s it. I might be updating this list soon, possible with places outside England when I can manage!
Bye for now.
