[on the road] Goodbye for now, Brighton.

I think my time in Brighton has officially come to an end. I thought it did when I left early October, but I got the chance to return to go to my graduation and see many of the friends I met there and the places I frequented. As I walked towards the beach as the […]

[photo of the day] Brighton, UK

This is the first in my series of photos of the day on the MapWanderer blog. I’ll try to post as much as I can, but we’ll see how that goes! I fell in love with Brighton. Living in this eclectic British seaside town was an adventure in itself. I had the privilege of living […]

The Seagull & the Remains of the West Pier, Brighton, United Kingdom

As Kristin and I walked along the beach, she mentioned to me the history of the West Pier (seen behind the seagull). After a series of unfortunate events, the pier is in its present condition, the framework for what was once a pier with a concert hall on it extending to land. It was built […]

[day 2] Brighton Gardens, Brighton, United Kingdom

I haven’t had time to update – finally doing it now! On my second day in the UK, I took a train in the morning to visit Kristin and to visit the beach city of Brighton! I haven’t seen her in a long time so it was great catching up. It was a sunny day […]
