Destination Brighton

Brighton EnglandWhen planning my escape to Brighton I had hoped for sunshine and nice weather but instead I got chilly winds hmph…. However, I wouldn’t let a little bad weather get in the way of my big adventure so I carried on like a trooper and had a fabulous time.

There was even a version of the London Eye!

Brighton Pier EnglandWhilst on the Brighton Pier I got a total déjà vu of the first time that I visited Santa Monica Pier in California. Piers can be so much fun and it certainly doesn’t hurt that the view tends to be great.

Brighton PierYee-haw, my all time favorite fair ground ride is without a doubt the merry go round. Cheesy maybe but undoubtedly a classic! What’s yours?
