You know, you read a lot of interesting books!

And you've got a Royal Pavilion print! Isn't that just a stunning building? Did you go there yourself? I went to Brighton and to the Pavilion last summer.

thank you ;) they are for my mayor/ magister paper :D so it's more in the work related direction, but interesting, so ;)

yes, it is indeed. a bit extreme at some points, but just to look at it is pretty stunning :D I was there last year, too!!!!! end of August :) I've bought some prints of the inside view and some postcards ♥♥♥

That is a ridiculous coincidence, I was there at the end of August as well! For all we know we walked past each other!

I'll answer to your entry tomorrow, because my concentration is non existent at the moment ;)

Oh, I just looked it up. We can't have met each other, cause I left Brighton again at the 26th... Still, rather an interesting coincidence!

yes, they are a bit unpredictable from time to time ;)

I only was in London, a day in Oxford (LOVE) and 4 days at Brighton. A wonderful week and I'll have to see the rest of England and eventually Scotland (and at some point Ireland) too. Maybe if I saved enough and have the time I'll do it after my graduation ;)

lol ;) such a bad habit ;)

you're welcome and I'm looking forward for your answers :D
