After the wedding commotion died down, it was time for Tom and I to show my parents and aunt some of England.
Maria’s English co-worker wrote down some suggestions for places to visit, and when we heard that Brighton was on the list, we didn’t hesitate to plan a day there, especially since it had been quite a while since we’d been last.
The days just kept getting more beautiful as their visit went on, making me look like a drama queen for complaining about how wet and cold it always is here. I’m sticking to that story– they just got lucky this time!
We went for a stroll on the pier. It was a Monday but the weather was so nice that the city was packed.
After a nice stroll on the pier and along the seafront, we set out to find some food. Tom recommended we go to Bill’s, which he’s talked about but has never brought me to (how rude.)
If you’re ever in Brighton, I highly recommend a visit to this quirky place. The atmosphere and decor was fun and relaxed, the staff were nice, but most importantly, the food was on point.
My mom and I both ordered a Halloumi burgers (my parents and Maria had become big fans of the cheese by this point) that had sweet chili sauce and some other goodness on it.
And it wasn’t long until my dad, the king of ice cream, found this place, where you can build your own milkshake. A nice way to end the day in Brighton…
