Sandi Anne Borowsky said in an interview Sept. 16 that her recently published book, “A Trip of a Lifetime,” is to share her many memories of her visits to England.
“The purpose of writing this was to share with fans my experiences visiting many Beatle places some of which are now closed or torn down,” she says. “So many fans have not seen the places that I was fortunate enough to see. By using this book if in Liverpool you should be able to also follow my path and see some of the things I did. Hopefully you won't get on the wrong bus and end up at the airport!”
The book features some delightful eyewitness anecdotes and observations that give readers a close-up view. Early in the book, Borowsky describes her visit to Paul McCartney's house on Cavendish Avenue.
“At Cavendish Avenue I stopped and took a photo of the street sign. As we walked down the street, on the left hand side was Billy Fury's house and Paul has a house close by. Paul's house had no number on the front of it. What, did he think that we could not tell it was his house? I mean for real! His house had a high wooden gate where the rest of the houses had this iron works thing going on.”
Later, she describes a visit to Savile Row, the former headquarters of the Beatles Apple Corps offices.
“The only thing I can say is ‘Oh My God!’ as it was so emotional to be there. There, where so many decisions were made and where they played their last concert. There, on the steps where photos were taken. I had goose bumps down to my goose bumps.”
The book is available through Amazon.co.uk.
