Brighton, UK – West Pier

I was a very happy visitor in Brighton, UK, in 2006!!! 😀 Oh my, I have no idea why, but this place was magical to me!!! Me & a few friends worked in Thistle Hotel over the December holidays… We had plenty of time to travel around & get to know Brighton & its immediate surroundings quite well!!! 🙂

I just loved the pebble beaches!! 🙂 South Africa is pretty well known for our white sandy beaches, so this was quite different from what I’m used to!!! I would go back to Brighton any time (& every time) that I have the chance!!! 😀

So, here is my Travel Lane memory for the week!!! Fondness galore!!! 😀 **

Whale Jaw on Schiermonnikoog!!!

It was taken December 2004 on the island, Schiermonnikoog!!!! Me & my mom visited our Netherland friends (Marieke & Marlies!!) for a few days & had a day trip to this small island North of the Netherlands. This is an authentic whale jaw – jaw-dropping right?? 😉 mind the pun!!! So awesome that it deserves this week’s spot for my Travel Lane journey!!!

France – Champs Elysees!!!

Good Evening everyone!! It’s been quite a few days since my last post!! & I am excited to share with you my Travel Lane memory for the week!! 😀

I find myself once again in the situation where I can’t decide which photo I like best – – – So I am sharing both!! Not for you to choose, but because both are special in a different way!! This is the Champ Elysees at night (9 December 2004 at 18h50!) taken with a Kodak Easyshare CX7310 digital camera! I love the christmas lights in the colour… & I love the movement in the B/W !!! I hope you enjoy it as well!!!

Champs Elysees truly is a magical place over the Christmas period. Although we were only there for five days, it was addictive!! Me & my mom were out and about every night… (there was a fabulous candy store… ‘Glup’… such sweet memories!!!) 😉

I hope to return soon!!! 🙂 **
