Minh and I took a last-minute trip to Liverpool (Home of the Beatles… though we didn’t do any Beatles related touristy things while there… ) over the holiday weekend. We’re still sifting through the thousands of pictures that we took while we were there… but in the meantime, I thought I’d tickle your tastebuds with photos of all the food we ate over the weekend.
