Started out the day being pretty tired and groggy from all the late shots and pints - Graham is a terrible influence but I guess it's all practice :)  finally finished at 2 am (started at 730...) ridiculous but I love you all !
Crash landed in my bed with a glance at my backpack and was immediately snoring my face off. was thankfully rudely awoken by leannes personal wake up service and my eurotrip was off to a spectacular start.  Many trips up and down the stairs we were in the car and driving - oh wait Liezl lost her phone - back we went oh and mitts are a good idea as well grab grab grab - somewhere around this point I found 20 euros in a bag BOOM eurotrip officially off to a GREAT start. Driving driving driving to Calgary too much Dave Matthews and white snow makes everyone in the car sleepy pandas but we made it in one piece (my car being the biggest piece) a chugga chugga. Next stop Disneyland -er Manchester! flight was BADASS (Leanne win! get ready) pills bonkers and Indian food yay ( that should have said pillows and blankets) but those too I suppose since I was gulping down many gravol an tylenol to fix my hangover during 9 hour you're-not-aloud-to-puke on-your-chair plane ride. Alright we made it to Manchester the entire plane was full of the vacationing English ( our customs line -20 their customs line -200 ) I guess we didn't do much in manchester but buy a sim card and a train ticket .. Neither were very successful but we made it to Liverpool stashed our bags in a broom cupboard (harry potter style) and went out on the town. As I'm sure you know Liverpool is the birthplace to the beatles so we did a tour of many famous beatles locations d'honeure we saw childhood houses and beatle crazy fan fare around them saw strawberry fields penny lane Albert docks etc it was awesome strawberry field was my favorite being a bright red fence topped with upside down strawberries. Across te street a man walked over to comment on all the tourists around lately - we got to talking - he's from Alberta (badass). After that we walked and walked, found the biggest urban outfitters I've ever seen and a outdoor mall rivaling Vegas hands down (in Liverpool?) one of Jamie olivers restaurants and  walked about 10 more kms and finally found our hotel again (3 floors up) nobody could point us to an authentic or decent fish and chip shop and after wandering into some fairly sketchy frozen fried fish shops we settled on a very fancy organic restaurant blocks away from out hotel ( in running jacket and jogging pants none the ya ) 3 courses of food later mom was dying of lack of sleep and I was in a food coma we dragged ourselves back to the hotel and passed out tres early for our flight to Paris at 615 am :( ....
