A wedding & a visit to the UK

Day 1

On our way to Aylesbury we stopped to have lunch in Flitton at the White Hart. If you are in the neighbourhood, do pop-in, it is really worth your visit.

I absolutely loved Berkhamsted. This historic town is situated in the west of Hertfordshire. I really could live there! It is definitely worth a second visit.

We also visited Brighton on the coast of East Essex. Had a quick walk through the centre trying to find Ship Street.

We needed to visit Brighton as a Steamer Trading Cookshop is located there and, so far as we know, you can get the ice-cube tray’s that hubby loves. They are stackable! I have to admit, so that you know, hubby is little peculiar about his ice-cubes Eye-rolling.

Looking forward to our next trip to the UK.
