I used to hear a lot about Blackpool from my siblings who studied in the UK. A friend visited Blackpool recently and told me how much fun it was. It had all kinds of crazy amusement parks and rides, yummy fish and chips with the all famous English mushy peas and the very special item that’s synonymous to Blackpool – Blackpool rock. He stayed in one of the nice Blackpool Hotels in that area that caters to the hordes of tourists who drop by every summer. He told me he was surprised that the hotel was so luxurious with much bigger rooms for a cheaper price compared to expensive London. Perhaps I should add Blackpool to my UK itinerary next year!
