Hey guys. Thought I'd mention that Ellie and I are planning a trip to Liverpool towards the end of the month. I've just booked to go to the http://www.casbahcoffeeclub.com/

As if that wasn't enough to make you all jealous, my dear old dad is taking me to Hamburg in December (because we haven't had a holiday together for years, and he's always wanted to visit Hamburg). I've got a Beatles in Hamburg book, and hopefully I'll be able to see the various clubs and sights. So far the must-do is to stand in the doorway where the Rock 'N' Roll cover was taken, and to visit the Beatlemania museum.

Obviously I'll return here with full reports after the trips. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions of places to see in either cities, please let me know. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Joe - jealous does not begin to describe my feelings right now. They both sound like wonderful trips. While in Hamburg, try to avoid this place...

I can't imagine you and your father burning a condom at the Bambi Kino (if it still exists), but then when in Rome...

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I've always wanted to go to Liverpool to see Beatles landmarks such as their birthplaces, the cavern club, St. Peters Church, Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. That would be amazing. I'm jealous of you Joe!

And in her eyes you see nothing, No sign of love behind the tears, Cried for no one, A love that should have lasted years.

I've been to Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and Mathew Street before, so I probably won't do it all again this time (we're only going for a couple of nights, otherwise our poor hungry cats will starve back home). But there's still way too much to squeeze in!

Sorry I can't take you all with me. If I win the lottery...

Mhh aren't those cat food dispensers to feed your pet while you're away? I know it's a useless purchase when you're away only for 2 days, but still it might be a good idea if you're planning a larger vacation.... just a thought a-hard-days-night-george-9

I will. Give me a chance – I got back late last night and haven't had a chance to sort through any photos or thoughts.

In brief, Wednesday: arrival, curry, A Hard Day's Night hotel bar.

Thursday: 251 Menlove Ave, 20 Forthlin Road, 9 Madryn Street, the pub on the cover of Sentimental Journey, Beatles Story exhibition, The Beatles Hidden Gallery and White Feather exhibitions. Cavern Club, where we watched The Mersey Beatles tribute band.

Friday: the new John Lennon Peace Statue thing (as horrible as it looks in the photos). Casbah Club, shown around by Roag (pronounced 'rogue' ) Best, brother of Pete and son of Neil Aspinall and Mona Best. Bought this book signed by Pete, Roag and Rory.

Then home, and some much-needed sleep. I think that's everything, in a very brief way. I have plenty of pics though – if you don't mind waiting a bit longer I'll sort them out. I've just been sent the new Band On The Run 2CD/DVD so I'm trying to put together a few words on that this weekend too.

Busy, busy, busy. I guess we can wait a little longer. I'll just cross the goofy John Lennon statue of my list of 25 things you must see in Liverpool. (I'm pretty sure it wasn't there to begin with...)

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
