The Beatles Story

If you are a music fan, when someone says Liverpool you think Beatles!

And that’s normal because they are probably the most famous band ever and also one of my favorite bands also.

So it was inevitable that we will visit all that has to do with them.

And in Liverpool you can visit all kind of things that have connection with the band – Cavern Club, John Lennon statue, Eleanor Rigby statue, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and of course The Beatles Story museum.  I mentioned just a few things.

We went to the museum in the morning and spend there a few hours.

We bought the tickets online through their web site, you get a discount if you buy online.

Tickets can also be purchased on the day of your visit.

At Albert Dock is the main exhibition where you can follow Beatles from their childhood, through the early days, to becoming famous in the whole world and their solo careers.

There are replicas of the Cavern Club,  Casbah and Mathew Street.

You can see a lot of photographs and memorabilia, Yellow Submarine, souvenirs from other countries – like Russian nesting dolls or nylon socks with the Beatles.

In museum is also FAB4 cafe with the free Wi-Fi, and the FAB4 store where you can buy Beatles souvenirs.

At the Pier Head there is another museum that is covered with the same ticket.

There you can see the Hidden Gallery – a collection of rare photographs documenting The Beatles’ 1963-1964 tour.

There is also a special exhibition there – now it’s the “The British Invasion: How 1960s beat groups conquered America “

When we were visiting there was exhibition called Elvis and Us   – about Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

It’s a great museum and definitely worth visiting.

The land of Ice & Fire

Finally a short vacation for me. Only 5 days but fantastic destination.

As I always say : Better to travel a bit but not to travel at all.

I went to Iceland!

It was necessary to save a lot for this trip but it was worth it.

The cheapest ticket we found was from Zagreb to Vienna to Oslo to Reykjavik.

Lot of stops, but it was the cheapest and the longest wait we had was in Oslo – 8 hours.

In Wien we had only 40 minutes layover.

When we came to Oslo airport we went to find a place to sit down and maybe rest a little until our flight, which was in the morning.

We bought a Beer and  we sat down.

In front of us was a big „penis statue“ which was very interesting, oddly  and funny, because lot of people came to take a picture with the statue in various poses. 🙂

After a while two guys came to sit beside us and we heard a familiar language so we ended up talking until morning.

The guys were very nice and interesting so the time passed very fast.

If they are reading this I’m sending  them big regards – Bojan & Ivan :), maybe we’ll meet again some day.

We came to Reykjavik around 09:00 AM.

We took a Flybus to the main bus station and from there we went with Straeto bus to our rented apartment which was in Búðagerði.

We left our stuff and went to Skarfabakki pier.

We bought a ticket to the boat and went to Viðey Island.

Viðey is the largest island of the Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland, near the Reykjavík.

It is the location of the Imagine Peace Tower, which is a “Tower of Light” built by Yoko Ono, in memory of  John Lennon.

The Church in Viðey is one of the oldest in the country.

There are also many birds there.

Island can be explored both on foot and by bike.

It’s great for a short visit.

After visiting the Island we took a Sculpture and Shore walk from the pier to the Harpa.

That was our first day in Iceland.
