Once upon a time, Ali and I were separated in Europe. It was a weird 24 hours. She was in Ireland, but over in England we experienced our first sunny day. Alex, Courtney, and (a different) Alli and I took the train to Brighton Beach, just south of London. That’s another great thing about Europe- how easy it is to get anywhere fast. Among a million great things. On this day trip, I had some authentic fish and chips, a candied apple, listened to jazz music, saw a skateboarding brigade, felt the sun, and experienced how Londoners holiday. Twas a wonderful day, and I’d definitely recommend the town to anyone passing by.
