As you may have gathered from my previous posts, I like to travel. So, now we’ve moved into 2008, I’m already planning the destinations I’d like to visit this year. The current favourites at the moment are Thailand, Italy and Germany. But, for those short breaks in the UK where somewhere closer is needed, I’ve been looking at Liverpool.
Last week Liverpool kicked off a special year for the city with its new title as the European Capital of Culture. Being a music fan, who wouldn’t want to go and see the Cavern club, where the Beatles started? Although, Rob, being more of a sports fan, would probably want to go to Anfield, where Liverpool FC play (although, he is from Kent so how he can claim to be a Liverpool fan, I don’t know!). The city has announced a full programme of events for 2008 including the end of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 07-08 and the MTV Europe Music Awards at the newly opened Echo Arena. I’m sure most people could find something that takes their fancy!
It’s easy to get to Liverpool as it’s serviced by major motorways and John Lennon airport. Avis has an office at the airport, located in the airport terminal and one in the city. Richard, the manager of both locations, says that they are all thrilled to be working in the Capital of Culture for 2008 and are really excited about this years events. He’s also looking forward to seeing visitors renting from Avis and giving them the opportunity to see how all the staff at Avis in Liverpool live up to the ‘We Try Harder’ culture.
