European Escapade - Anfield Stadium, Liverpool!

Budapest apartments as low as €17.50 a night? That is truly cheap so while you go nuts over the low rates online, let me get excited with the fact that we have finally reached the last day of my stay in
England with B! Smiley

I know this European Escapade
is taking me forever to complete and I truly appreciate your patience and diligence in following my escapades. It means a lot to me so thank you very much and if you’re ready, we are going to Liverpool today! Smiley

Prior to this trip, B had visited Liverpool city thrice. This fourth time however was extra special because he got to share his passion for football and his beloved Liverpool team with yours truly.

Together in Anfield

We took a train to
Liverpool and our main agenda was to visit the KOP and experience the stadium tour. From the train station, we took a cab to the Anfield, home of B’s favourite team in the world! tepuktangan

Here we go!

Liverpool was a nice change from Manchester by the way. The sun was shining when we arrived and the people seemed friendlier too.

I ♥ Liverpool

Our stadium tour guide was fun and she made everyone feel at ease. The tour group that afternoon was small but everybody seemed lazy for some reason. In fact, B was the most enthusiastic and sporting of the lot, answering most of the trivia questions, each time correctly of course! ihikhik

The KOP was a sight to behold, especially for me. First time visiting B’s turf, I actually paid attention to the tour guide’s fascinating insight into Anfield’s celebrated past and Liverpool FC’s achievements.


Legendary Bill Shankly

The tour included enjoying the best view from the best seats in the stadium, an interactive experience in the Anfield Press Room as well as a visit to the same dressing room used by today's football icons like Stevie G, Luis Suarez and Jamie Carragher.

Go Liverpool!

B and his Captain!

No comment on Torres, next question pls!

Touch for luck!

Me too touch for luck!

Sitting in the KOP end

By the time we reached the museum entrance, my camera battery had died so we used our second camera. I really need to bring a spare battery on my next trip. Whenever I take the panoramic shots or shoot videos with my Sony Cybershot, it takes up a lot of my battery life.

Treasures of Liverpool

5-Time European Champions

This is the 2005 Champions League Cup that Liverpool brought home. Apparently, Stevie G brought it back to his hotel room that winning night to hug in his bed! ihikhik


Our last stop was the Liverpool FC Club Store where I treated B to a shopping spree! It was his birthday present from me and I ended up spending the most throughout this EE, right here in this store! B got the new Liverpool jersey, complete with printing and everything and a whole bunch of other Liverpool merchandise. I got myself an awesome LFC Tee in red, which I love! love

Bye-bye Anfield

We made our way back to the city to catch our train into Manchester and here are more pictures of beautiful Liverpool. I really can't remember the names of the buildings but the pictures are still worth viewing. senyumkenyit

Train Station

With this last picture, I am officially done with my European Escapade in UK! Being in London, Manchester, and Liverpool with B on our vacation was truly one of the most memorable moments ever! I do love traveling and it is great to be able share this passion with the real love in my life. Will you be heading for a vacation anytime soon? Don't forget to check out the affordable apartments in Budapest I mentioned at the beginning of my post.

Now that I am finished with the UK segment of my
European Escapade, you know what comes next right? Amazing Amsterdam! Smiley
