Brighton had been on my ‘Places to visit’ list for quite some time now, in particular the Brighton Pier was just one of those places that seemed to equal complete and utter happiness. Now I can finally confirm, that it is true, although the fact that only a couple of wood pieces separated me from the (deep?) ocean made me feel bit squeamish at first, the Pier is the place to be!
As my mom and I only went to the seaside for the afternoon on, luckily, a lovely day, we didn’t get to see much else. That, and we literally spent so much time on the pier because we enjoyed it so much! In fact, we didn’t actually go on any of the attractions (because we were already terrified of being above the sea, let alone going on an attraction above the sea). But we did enjoy watching everyone enjoying the attractions 😉
All that fear and observing gave us an enormous appetite, which is why we decided to share a delicious (and huge) portion of traditional fish and chips. My stomach actually started rumbling as I was typing that… My oh my, was that delicious. Who knew that fried cod fish with fries would be so yummy?
You simply cannot leave the Pier without having some of the (also famous) doughnuts. Naturally, we were craving a traditional dessert after that traditional meal. However, when we arrived at the donut stall, we were informed that they were only sold in bags of half a dozen… Not to worry, we went ahead and had three doughnuts each instead of just one. I even dipped mine in nutella 😍😋
With our bellies filled, and the lovely sunshine (and the fact that we simply couldn’t walk anymore because we were literally so stuffed), we decided to enjoy the last bits of bright sunshine, right next to the beach, before hitting the shops quickly. It was so lovely being away from the city for a while, there really is something special about fresh sea air.
It was such a lovely day in Brighton, and I am sure I will go back soon. For now, it is only a train-ride away!
Lots of Love,
