Us so-called millennials are all guilty of it. We’ve grown up in the age where having your head buried in your phone is the norm and with those little handheld devices being capable of so much it’s no surprise that we (and I mean ME) start to get a little tetchy when we can’t use them. WiFi is, these days, an absolute requirement before planning any kind of trip and it’s not just our phones that we’re obsessed with. TV’s, Laptops, Tablets and iPads; the digital revolution means it’s practically impossible to switch off and actually live in the moment.
Sometimes we take for granted where we live. It’s easy to do considering you see the same streets and landmarks day in day out. If you’re anything like me then you either walk along with your head in your phone or listening to music and completely zoning off (probably not the safest way to navigate the city centre of Liverpool.) Although it may mean that I get from A-B in record time I don’t tend to take in any of my surroundings. Liverpool is full of history and culture, it has some of the best looking buildings in the world (am I bias? Probably) and is a tourist hotspot for good reason. Therefore lately I’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to be a tourist in my own city and actually appreciate my surroundings.
If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would probably be pancakes. Thick ones, crepes, sweet, savoury; you name it, I love it. Finding the perfect place to satisfy my pancake cravings actually turned out to be far easier than I thought. Way back in my first year of university we stumbled across Moose Coffee on Dale Street and I haven’t looked back since.
We all start the new year with resolutions and goals for the year and The Adopted Scouser is exactly that..my resolution for 2017 (and beyond!)
After moving to Liverpool over 3 years ago I fell in love with the place and decided I never wanted to leave. From the architecture and cocktail bars to the buskers and everyday people, there’s something about the city that drew me in.
This blog aims to be my way of showcasing exactly what the city and the north west as a whole has to offer. Giving an insight into the life of an East Mid’s gal up north you can follow the journey of an adopted scouser navigating the city and beyond. Enjoy!
