Britain: Liverpool

Our first night in Liverpool we cooked dinner and hung out at our hostel to make use of the wifi. The next day was our Liverpool city day. I went for a run and then we walked down to the historic docks, and then split up for a bit while Jared went to the Maritime Museum and I attempted to talk to an Apple worker about my phone. We met up for fish and chips at a pub and then went to the Liverpool Cathedral before cooking at the hostel for dinner. That evening we headed out to the to watch a Beatles cover band in the venue where that they got their start, the historic (and cramped and stuffy) Cavern Club. We had a blast karaoke-ing with the crowd during all of our favorite songs from the Fab Four.

Jammin' to some tunes.
Our next day was our Beatles day! We spent three hours in a fun taxi with a great tour guide who took us to all of the important Beatles sites of the city. We saw Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields (these are not, in fact, fields) and the childhood homes of all four of the "lads."

The hospital where John was born.
Sleepy me by Eleanor's grave.

 In front of Strawberry Fields, an old orphanage.

There was indeed a shelter in the middle of a roundabout.

We had a wonderful time and then went and bought a few more souvenirs before having a meal and going to bed early since we had to be up early to go to Bath via Beester Castle.
