Liverpool holds a special place in my heart, especially as it’s where I lived for the first four years of my life. My family still resides there now, and I return to see them pretty frequently.
I’ve spent many a day in Liverpool cafes, as they’re a great place to pass the time while waiting for friends or family members to finish their working days.
