Travel: Liverpool (UK Day 2) - Photo Diary

Friday, May 26, 2017


Before I start with the photo diary I want to say some words about the events that happened a few days ago.
It is really strange that my first post about my UK trip went online on Sunday and the day after the attack followed. My heart broke when I heard that mostly teens and children died. I know, people are dying everyday, everywhere, every second. It's just strange that it happened at a place I have been before. I still remember how my sister and me wandered around Victoria Station and how we were disappointed because we could not enter the Stadium. And now 23 people are dead right after I have posted about my first impressions of Manchester. I struggled about writing my following posts because it would be totally disrespectful to simply go on without any kind of acknowledgement.

I guess all I want to say is that we should not be afraid of the places where things happened. We should not stop ourselves from exploring, spending time with each other and enjoying ourselves. But we have to be aware of things that could happen and that actually happen. 

So. After our first day in Manchester my sister and me took a coach and drove to Liverpool for a day. We guessed that one full day would be enough but in the end we concluded that we should have spent another there to explore the outer regions. Due to our limited time we could not even look for the zebra crossing of The Beatles. In sum, Liverpool is simply a beauty and so worth visiting. In fact I enjoyed it there more than Manchester. But let's start with the photo diary.

Walker Art Gallery



I just love the fact that museums in the UK are free. Little did I know that the Walker Art Gallery has one of the largest art collections in whole England. I was nearly overwhelmed with the loads of pieces by Waterhouse, Seurat, Rubens, van Rijn, Cézanne, Gauguin, Picasso, van Gogh, Warhol and so many more! We spent over two hours there and only left because we needed fresh air and had limited time. You have to check the gallery out, it is a must!

City Council (Municipal Buildings)



Moose Coffee



Britain is expensive, at least before the Brexit took place. But thanks to my sis we were able to hunt down the best inexpensive places to eat where the quality of the food was still high. If you're in Liverpool definitely look out for Moose Coffee's blueberry pancakes. They are so fluffy and filling. I had a hearty dish of toast, bacon, hash browns and fried eggs. Friends and family know that I loooooove hearty brunches and I was so in heaven.


Central Library



St George's Hall



Liverpool Cathedral



Liverpool One Mall



Pier Head: Three Graces



Pier Head with its Three Graces was so impressive! It's definitely a must for lovers of renaissance and baroque architecture and simply for people who like to take photos with clean backgrounds, haha. But beware you wear weatherproof clothing. The wind is unbelievable.

Albert Dock: Tate Museum



We didn't spend too much time at Albert Dock because it was freezing and we were hungry. We also skipped the Tate Modern due to entrance fee, haha.
Well after we strolled around the harbour we went back to the coach station and waited for our bus to get back to Manchester. Liverpool, it was a blast!
