Seven Sisters

Date February 20, 2010

More than five years and I haven’t been to the Seven Sisters? [salbum=29,n,n,left] All change today: one hour after departing from Victoria Station, we found ourselves in Eastbourne and started a great 12km-walk along the coastline.

Actually, I am a repeat offender, as I […]
