On Saturday morning, we woke up to these clouds. Dark and looming and a very different view from what I’m used to seeing from our balcony. Little did we know what was to come! Just last week I wrote about how … Continue reading

Water is essential to life, yet too much or too little becomes the opposite. Many people take water for granted, while other’s day-to-day lives evolve around trying to obtain it. Water is often associated with relaxation in the form of … Continue reading
Isla del Sol, Bolivia
You know that feeling when you climb up a lot of stairs, like a lot, and you’re out of breath but that’s ok because it was a lot of stairs… well, when you climb up three steps and you are … Continue reading
The Bluest Blue :: Cambodia
When booking a flight to Cambodia, I knew it would be monsoon season. I’d experienced it before in Nepal and was prepared for the flash rain and the humidity. We decided to spend five days on the coast, even though it … Continue reading
Walking the Regent’s Canal
Canals make Venice famous. But, did you know there are miles of lovely canals crossing London? I certainly forget that sometimes! Earlier this week we walked 5.7 miles of the 8.6 mile long Regent’s Canal. The canal winds from West … Continue reading

Jet d’Eau, Geneva
When arriving in Geneva I had no idea what it had to offer. But I did know one thing. I did know there was a huge water fountain on the edge of Lake Geneva and I knew it would be … Continue reading
Day Trippin’ to Brighton
I woke up and peeked outside… the cars were covered in splashes of rain. ‘Oh no! It can’t be raining on a day trip day’ I thought so I grabbed a light jacket and headed to London Bridge, where I was meeting my friend. We jumped on the train and chatted for the hour long train journey to Brighton and smiled as we saw the Welcome to Brighton sign. We were here… and so was the sun! There really was no need for the light jacket! I ended up having to carry it round for the whole day.
What’s the first thing you do when you arrive in Brighton? Head to the sea! We spotted it, which is always a lovely feeling and were soon greeted by the unforgettable smell of the sea; salty and fresh. We walked on the pebbles, until there were too many pebbles in my sandals. By this time I was regretting not bringing any suncream so we headed back into the shopping area to grab some factor 30 before heading to The Lanes. The Lanes is a small shopping area of curving streets with mainly jewellery shops.
Then it was time for lunch. A trip to the beach is not complete without fish n chips for lunch with a beach view so that’s exactly what we did. We then headed to Brighton Pier and had a look in the arcades.
Then for another sit on the beach while watching the hungry seagulls gracefully swooping for people’s fish n chips. And lastly another look around the shops before heading back to London.
Have you been to Brighton? Did you forget your suncream too?
It’s a beautiful, fresh spring evening. Let’s see what we find on an after-work walk… How was your Monday? Marcella xx
