Formby sand dunes

We went at Formby – Sefton’s Natural Coast. Laura mentioned it and today we went there. Here is the parking lot near the sand dunes. It looks great, but it was a little windy and we didn’t stay too long. We liked the walk on the beach and the sand dunes are nice, so we […]

7 years

7 years ago, hubby (back then he was BF) asked me if I wanted to move with him. I love that period of our life, he was staying near Bucharest in the University’s dorm-rooms and I was clandestine, the doorman knew, but she didn’t care. We were both in the last year of the University. […]

Museum of Liverpool

Today we went to Museum of Liverpool with some friends. I wanted a picture with Lion railway locomotive, but it was too crowded, so I got a picture with the kids train. Hubby and I tried some Chinese clothes. Overhead Railway motor coach, the only example that survived is on display. This coach is one […]

Christmas and boxing day

My first Christmas in UK was very nice and very different. The only Romanian food I was able to make was “cozonac” (it’s similar to the Italian panettone, but with raisins, walnuts and cocoa). Besides this I’ve made houmus, mushrooms with mayonnaise, stuffed eggs and other appetizers. For the main course I had halumi (hubby […]

Museums

Yesterday we visited Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum. They are in the same building. I liked the Maritime Museum. The story of three ships that sank are very moving. In 3 years (1912 – 1915) three ships sank: Titanic, Lusitania, and Empress of Ireland. There is a depict of the people that died […]
