Me, Myself, a Renault Clio and the Road…

It all starts with that damn car.

A little Renault Clio that I can probably push with my little finger.  We look long and hard at each other, this Clio and I.

The Ultimate City Guide on Liverpool, UK…

I have lived in my city for three years, where I lived in Liverpool during my time as a student.

My city is best described by the five words: lively, friendly, cultural, nightlife, and students.

The most famous thing about my city is its culture. The history and music of The Beatles remain at the forefront of Liverpool’s music scene, with The Cavern pub being a popular place to visit.  For the sporting fan, Liverpool F.C., Everton F.C. and Aintree all stand as famous Sports clubs and racing grounds that are well known for their reputation nationwide.

The best way to explore my city is to walk or by bus, because once you’re in the centre of town, you can walk from A to B incredibly easily.
