*This post is entry to ThinkMoneys Blogger 'Bank Holiday Staycation Competition'...
If you could go anywhere for you dream Staycation where would it be? I've been thinking long and hard and since I started writing this post it has changed a FEW times!
Alton Towers Resort?
And then I had a thought. What if my monsters could experience my favourite place as a kid? And that was that my heart was set on it! If I could go anywhere this August Bank Holiday it would without a doubt be Sussex, in particular, the hustle and bustle of trendy Brighton and then the quaintness of the old seaside town Hastings.
We, as a family have such fond memories of these places. Brighton been a place my Dad had always wanted to visit since his days as a scooter riding mod, and then when we visited? I fell in love with the place. The town is electric and just has a real cool vibe about the place. It may be a seaside but it certainly does not live up to the expectations and stereo type seaside town. (Sorry Balckpool, Sorry Skeggy!) You could spend a day on the pier (which has been in its place since 1823!) with its bustling shops, side stalls, an fairground rides.
And then Hastings, it may be good old seaside town but again it just has a different feel to you usual Seaside resorts. The old town with its sweet old buildings. The charming wooden Victorian coaches of the cliff railway pulling up the cliff side to give you the most amazing views.
Why would I visit these places?
Life is nothing if we didn't have memories. And I want my memories to live on. I want my children to sit back in 20/30 years and say ''can you remember that time on holiday...'' like me and my family do now.
