Greenwich Park, London. April 2017. I’m all about the parks whenever I return to the English capital.

Travel Report: Hard Days Night Hotel.

Hard Days Night Hotel, Liverpool. May 2019. As a diehard Beatles fan who’d come to Liverpool to conduct as much Beatlesy business as I could, there really was only one place to stay. It just had to be the world’s only Beatles inspired hotel.
