a day of adventure.

Today was to put it simply, a dream. We woke up at 6:30 to be ready to leave by 7:30. I ate breakfast and made my lunch for the day of a croissant and chicken salad with grapes in it like we always eat on the boat, fruit and a muffin. We got on the coach and were off to Brighton to see the Royal Pavilion. It took us about two hours to get there but a two hour drive has never been more worth it to me. Brighton is most likely my favorite place that I have gone so far. The royal pavilion was a beautiful Indian and Chinese inspired house of George IV. The d├ęcor was so extravagant and very expensive. I wouldn’t mind having a house like that to vacation and party in. We also went to the Brighton Pier which was quaint and fun but also fringed and windy.

My lovely ladies an I.
Next stop was Battle Abbey in Hastings. We walked the grounds and had a little photo shoot with all the girls. My favorite part was watching Jenny and Calvin walking in the fields being sheep herders; it was quite a funny site.
Once we were done there we drove about half an hour to a tiny town called Rye, where we stopped for dinner. Audrey, Emma, Caitlin and I walked up the road and found the most adorable bed and breakfast and had a light dinner. I ordered a pot of raspberry tea, a bowl of fantastic pepper and tomato soup with a cheese scone all for six pounds. We all met back up at the coach and started the three hour ride back to London. It was a wonderful day!
I cherish all the memories I am making.

Things I have noticed:
The English are obsessed with black currant.
Everything tastes better with nutella on it.
I prefer wearing leggings over pants.
