Hello everyone! I finally got to a computer! I am sitting here at the mall in Liverpool, listening to a live band in the Virgin Megastore. What an adventure the past couple days has been. Here it is in a nutshell...
First off, when Jessica and I got to Canada, we forgot that the speed on the roads was converted to km's... Lets just say that that was really hard to figure out, 100 km/hr seems a little fast to us! :) But we got to the airport< with plenty of time to spare. \we officially met our first travel buddy, Loren from Vancouver. He was travelling with his family to London with us. Thank god he was around when we arrived in London, we wouldnt have known what to do! Let me just say that the 9 hours that we spent on the train were the longest in my life!! The seats were soooo cramped! I think that we got a combined 5 hrs of sleep between the two of us... it pretty much sucked.
But we safely arrived in London, and thanks to Loren, found the train ticket office and went through customs just fine. We parted with him at the airport, he gave us his card... weird I know. Anywhoo, we took the train to central London. From there I could see the London Eye, but nothing else. From there we had to jump on the Underground, SO FUN! I could immediately tell that Londoners know how to dress, they are very classy! But we got on the train to Liverpool, sooooo long!
Here's where the story begins... We arrive at Liverpool and take the coolest cab to our hostel. En rute, our cab driver tells us to beware that we are staying in a dangerours neighborhood.... fabulous. We pull up and it is the creepiest building EVER! With a huge big gate out front and everything> so we are pretty much freeking out> the inside isnt that much better... So bare and scary! When we finally get to our room, this creepy as heck lady peeks her head out of her door to see who is coming down the hall, then she comes out and asks if she can borrow my makeup!!! UMMM< NOO! :) i told her that i dont wear any, but I clearly do. Anywhoo, we decided to stay a night, holled up in our room and ordered a pizza through Dominos. We called my dad and he THANKFULLY found us another room at the Holiday Inn. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH DAD!!!!! But I had better get going, Jessica wants to make it to the museum. I will tell you all more when I get to London tomorrow. For tonight, we are headed to the famous Cavern Club for some fun!!
until next time,
