4. Eye-rolling at Londoners who think the tube is rowdy when they’ve never been on Merseyrail.

Especially the run up the escalators at Liverpool Central when you've overdone the pre-drinks and need a wee.


6. Never properly enjoying a birthday again once you’re too old to visit the Crocky Trail.

10. Dealing with a lifelong fear of marshes because you’ve heard the horror stories of people lost forever after climbing over the wall at Park Gate.

It's like Game of Thrones* beyond that wall, for all we know.

*Actually, it's just Wales.


14. Visiting Central Park in New York and being less than impressed because you know the design is based on Birkenhead Park and it will always reign supreme.

Parks and recreational drug users FTW.

16. Choosing between Odeon Bromborough, Vue Birkenhead, or The Light in New Brighton.

But picking the trip through the tunnel and a £9 parking charge in Liverpool One if it's actually a film worth seeing.


17. Joining in with the Wirral's obsession with golf, particularly during the Open Championships at Royal Liverpool when the celebrity sightings ramp up.

“Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas were definitely seen shopping in West Kirby Morrisons, ask anyone.”
