As I told you in the last post I would like to talk you about my experience in Britain and for that I’ll explain you the very first time I went there.
It was two years ago, the 3rd of August of 2015. Don’t think I’m crazy I remember this because it was my birthday. I was turning sixteen the first time I took a plane to visit my favourite country.
I flew from Valencia to Manchester and my cousin Rocío was waiting for me at the airport. It was my birthday as I said so she gave me something like a badge (a really big one) with IT’S MY BIRTHDAY writen on it. I think it was similar to this one hahaha. It was enormous.
I was freaking out, I mean I couldn’t imagine I was finally in England. We took a train to Warrington and seriously, England is so green (ok it’s raining almost everyday, although it didn’t rain the time I was there, lucky girl)
You may be asking what I did while I stayed in Warrington. Well, I visited the city with my cousin when she was out of work. We visited the city center, some cathedrals and green parks which I felt in love with. One day I went with Tony to visit the river of Warrington and he explained me the difference between each part of the river that divides Warrington. He also told me about the ships that go throw the river and then we went across the bridge to see the other side of the city. It was pretty cool, Tony was born there so he knows a lot about Warrington and England. When we were having dinner he told me some curiosities about the country which were pretty interesting for me.
We also visited Liverpool. Rocío had been lilving there before so she knew what would be cool to see. We went to the library and it was huge. It had like little spaces to see films where nobody can bother you and also a rooftop and you could see Liverpool from there. We went to the Albert Dock and its museums and had a good time in the Cavern where there was a musician singing some different songs. I was shocked to see all that stuff, all the people dancing, some old guitars and music contracts. You all need to see this.
Rocío and I went to see Manchester but Tony was working so he couldn’t. It was more like a big city and I think I could not live there hahaha. We walked a lot to see as much as we could but it was worth it. We met some Spanish guys who lived in a town near ours, what a concidence!
Tony’s parents offered me to go with them to Blackpool for a weekend and I accepted. Blackpool is next to the beach so we could see the sea from our sofa. Blackpool has a fair in the pier. I though this only happened in the films because I have never seen something that cool here in Spain. We went to the center of the town and it had lots of shops and leisure centers. Blackpool used to be such a turistic place, but not anymore and it’s quite sad because it’s too beautiful.
I spent my last weekend there in Bristol visiting my other cousin who is Rocío’s brother. We didn’t get bored because my little cousin don’t allow you to so we went to visit Bristol with my cousin’s friends and we had lunch in my favourite place (it was a buffet with food worldwide, cool, isn’t it?) One of those days we went to Bath and visited part of the town which was cool. And then we went back to Warrington.
In the last days we were thinking to visit Liverpool again but I forgot my passport in Bristol so Rocío had to come back (I could never thank her enough) so I stayed at home. And after three amazing weeks I flew back to Spain.
I’ve forgotten to say that we also made some film kind of night with its food and drink and which I miss so bad (yes Rocío and Tony that’s an indirect)
