I have never seen my boyfriend so happy as I have once I saw him standing on the sidelines. I know he would have loved to get a ball and go for a kick on the pitch, but they had very specific signs telling us to not do that. He didn't stop smiling til we left, and I think he was still ridiculously happy just being that close to the home of the LFC.

After the tour of the interior of the stadium, and seeing the infamous sign proclaiming Anfield, we headed out to the pitch. Tried to figure out where our seats were and we managed to narrow it down pretty well.

Saturday morning was up early for breakfast and then game day! There wasn't much else to do besides get ready and head to the field, so we walked around aimlessly for a while before finally finding the bus station. Lots of sign with no real information in Liverpool. Nice enough as a city though. We got dropped off next to the stadium and found a bar to go in a get the first drink of the day. I think we would have drank more had we been in a group, but it was a nice experience anyways. I even had a beer! (big deal for me). The game was better than I thought it would be, even though they lost 2-1.
|liverpool threw up on us and this is what came out lol|
|"lots of room in the outside bar"...should have seen the inside!|
|the match day lounge our tickets gave us access too. surreal.|

On Sunday morning, I had managed to sleep better but the time changed, so I was still out an hour of sleep (yeah, the time changes later here. weird, right?) Got up and showered to head out to my choice of venue, the Beatles Story museum.
Not too much to write about it without telling you all about the Beatles, which you should know about. There was lots of information about their formation and backgrounds, which was really interesting to see. I realized I haven't seen their movies, which I plan to do soon. It was really inspiring to see how they were only together for 8 years but accomplished so much in that time span.
