Suffolk Trip: Clouds And Lights On The Coast

Seven years ago in Kerala/India during a night out in the empty streets of Alappuzha I met Nicky from London. We had some funny days together and connected via Facebook where we shared our life and views. Some years later she came to Berlin with a friend but I was in Sicily with my mum. So I gave her the keys to my apartment and when I came back I found a pile of presents on my dining table.

This year she invited me to her ultra fancy glam birthday party which turned out to be also her surprise engagement party. We arrived some days early to make a small holiday out of it and we had a marvellous and heartwarming time in Nickys and Johns pink house in Suffolk. Thank you so much!

Location: Southwold – beach – along River Blyth northbound – crossing River Blyth via the small bridge – heading direction Walberswick – Walberswick – forest south of Walberswick – marshlands near the beach –  back to Southwold / Distance: 15 km / Weather: 7 °C, cloudy, rainy, windy, sunny / Camera: Nikon D90, 18-105mm lens / Don’t buy the local map 🙂

As we are kind of biased against English food (you know – Asterix et cetera :-))  we have been really surprised by the quality and passion of what we have found in delis and even in supermarkets. Go to Black Olive Delikatessen or – next door – to Two Magpies Bakery if you crave for sweet stuff.

We deeply regret our former attitude and hereby we apologize officially.

  1. Beautiful pics! The colorful beach huts really brought back some nostalgia of Victorian times. The friendship story with Nicky is wonderful. Traveling has always brought about great friendships for me too.
