June 15th @ London & Liverpool, UK

Morning jogging in Central London! Whoo that was fun. First time using Strava to track my route, and it was quite a struggle to run on the street. Much harder than doing it on a treadmill.

From SoHo, to Buckingham Palace, through Royal Parks (St. James), then Churchill War Room all the way to Big Ben (not so far actually). And across the bridge, it ends at London Eye.

这一路上我简直不停的停下来……说起来真的好丢脸,但是既然已经决定让运动成为这一路上的常数(constant),那就应该坚持,持之以恒。希望明天能在Liverpool有所进步!

【This was really hard for me, I stopped for several times just to think that I cannot do this. Even though, I have decided to make exercise as a constant during my trip, so I won’t give up. In Liverpool I will jog more and find a better/more iconic route】

Still, it’s an amazing city. Do I belong here? Studying or working here is kinda dream I have all the time. I don’t have a good accent, or extraordinary skills. Minor setback. Living expense is also quite high. Now I’m so jealous of that guy who worked at Barclays’ before.无论如何,我还欠着那一次坐伦敦眼的机会,我还会再来的!

下午坐汽车去利物浦,十三磅就够了。比火车便宜了好多。虽然晚饭时间才能到,但是无所谓啦~对于利物浦,我实在没有太多了解,只知道足球流氓很出名,还有甲壳虫乐队。所以应该会去哪个pub坐一会儿吧?~

——————————————————————————————————————

一路坐车去利物浦,看到了好多畜牧场,在伯明翰接客的时候正好目睹了接上一群警察围堵小偷的画面!小偷直接被按在了街上,看着都觉得疼!后来又遇上大堵车,晚上七点才到利物浦。Hostel也只剩上铺了……不过没关系,下铺的男生并没有和我聊天,隔壁的两个男生倒是很友好,一个住在爱尔兰的芬兰人和一个韩国人。我随口夸了一句芬兰小哥的纹身就聊起来了,他也经常一个人出去玩,后来我就没管他们,直接出去找pub准备嗨了。

Liverpool city centre has bricks and stones as street, which makes feel very cozy, just like hometown – West Lake. After the pouring rain, not many people went on the street. With all the landmarks on the signs, there was no difficulty to find Cavern Club, where Beatles started.

Well, it’s my first time in a pub, alone! And that was when I felt something as cons during a solo trip. In the club everyone has date/company/friends/family, while I myself, alone, feeling like an outsider. Thanks to the guitar player and singer, whose voice made every minute of awkwardness less obvious to myself.

More than that, the fish and chips here are so cheap that I cannot believe it. 3 pounds which I need to have two meals to finish. Worth it. Bet that’s what I would rely on for the next two days!
