When your friends have tickets to the Spice girls reunion tour and ask you if want to join them your first response is YES. Despite the fact that you need to travel to Manchester for it.
The concert was wet and rainy but an amazing atmosphere. Do you ever listen to a song and remember exactly what life was like when you first heard it? That is the exact nostalgic feeling we had when we sang along with these songs from our childhood memories.
The day after the concert we took a train straight into Liverpool to visit the roots of the other famous band from the UK. Liverpool and Manchester are only a 30 minute train ride apart. So once you visit one, do not forget about the other.
We booked a magical mystery bus tour to guide us to the famous sites the Beatles ever touched or sang about. Our guide and driver are the biggest fans and educated us thoroughly. Did you know that Strawberry field used to be a Salvation Army children’s home next to John Lennon’s childhood home which he used to visit in secret as a little boy?
A complete new perspective on a song.
The tour dropped us off at the famous Cavern Club where their story began. We had a couple drinks, (veggie) hamburgers and sang along with the music. It is what we do best. And nothing to get hung about.
Back in Manchester we enjoyed the best and most creative cocktails ever made at the Washhouse. A top secret spot disguised as a washhouse where reservations are a must. Ring the phone and they might let you enter the club.
Definitely worth your time!
