A Ride on the British Airways i360, Brighton

Recently, we went on a ride on Brighton’s newest attraction, the British Airways i360 cable car. This is a vertical ride in a glass viewing pod, up to 450 feet with 360 degree panoramic views of beautiful scenery, reaching a distance of 26 miles on clear days! There are great views along the coast in both directions, the WestPier directly below and the Palace Pier in the distance. You can see across to the South Downs in the opposite direction and on clearer days you can even see the Isle of Wight! When I moved to Brighton four years ago, the Brighton Wheel offered great views across the sea. I was sad to see it go but was keen to experience its new replacement. I saw the British Airways i360 being built and walked past it many times as a work in progress. It opened on 4 August 2016 and has attracted countless visitors since.

Our Week in Wales

If you haven't already seen my Instagram page, we spent last week in beautiful Pembrokeshire, Wales staying at Bluestone during the week and the stunning coastal town of Tenby at the weekend. I will write full blog posts about both but wanted to list the highlights of our trip. I was offered our stay at Bluestone at the very last minute and decided to take up the offer and go on my first entirely solo holiday with Pip. Despite being in January & pretty cold, we had some beautiful sunny days and plenty of things to keep ourselves entertained. I can say, it was one of our best holidays to date! Actually when we left Bluestone, Pip cried! I think he thought we had permanently moved into our lovely little holiday cottage, bless him! It's always lovely to get away, have a change of scenery, relax and enjoy the new environment and this trip offered us so much natural beauty. I would love to return in the summer and do it all again! Here are some of the things we got up to.
