**Just a little note: This post was previously published on my former blog. I don’t want anybody reading it then flipping out and thinking I stole it. I feel like the my posts about Liverpool and Wales are essential for having a whole picture of my travelling this summer, so I’ve decided to re-post them here.**
My second day in Liverpool started with a nice breakfast at Brasco Lounge. They have an entirely separate vegan menu, and I ended up settling on their vegan breakfast plate. This was my first time trying baked beans since getting to Great Britain, and I was pleasantly surprised that I liked these. I usually find the American kind much too sweet. I’m more of a fan of savory breakfasts, so this hearty plate was right up my alley.
The restaurant was conveniently located near the Liverpool Museum, which is a great free (!) place to explore. The best part for me was their large exhibit on the history and movement of transgender people.
Albert Dock is also nearby and holds a few entertaining things to see. My favorite of which was the giant Echo Wheel. Although I’m not a huge fan of heights, I rode it anyway and had a great time being terrified on the squeaky ride.
While wandering around the dock, I was drawn into a candy shop due to their amazing jelly bean portrait of The Beatles. Inside, I found some vegan vanilla-flavored Liverpool candy canes, which my inner tourist insisted I try.
As a bonus: here’s a yarnbombing I saw at St. John’s Gardens.
