To be honest, Manchester is not somewhere that I really even wanted to go. However, with that said, I was pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoyed the city. I honestly love any city that we can easily walk around and explore, especially when I’m too nervous to drive not only in a different country, but on the opposite side of the road from what I’m used to.
One thing about Manchester that I’d always heard about was that it is dirty. But really, if you’ve been to New York, it isn’t all that different, lol. It really isn’t THAT bad. Not to mention all the people that we’ve encountered have been so nice, friendly and very helpful! It’s also kinda funny how everyone here is so fascinated by OUR accent, when I’ve always been so intrigued by theirs!
So if you are ever in the UK and just passing through, I would definitely recommend making a pitstop in Manchester and enjoying some of the unique and fun things that the city has to offer!

This is something that we were so impressed with! Primark is a HUGE three story building, mostly for women but a floor for men and children. The best thing about this is that it is great quality clothes for insanely cheap prices ranging from £5 to £25. We literally did not see anything that was more than £25. Seriously, amazing.
If you aren’t trying to ball on a budget, there is a huge mall just across the street with most everything you can imagine, ranging from H&M to Louis Vuitton. All located in the North Quarter, you can find anything your heart desires - well more like anything you'r wallet can afford, haha.
