January 15th, 2017

I had been here a year ago, and decided to come back.

A little village, nearby Rye.

Just about an hour and a half from Brighton, there is this little gem.

What makes it special is the sandy beach. Here, in the south coast of UK, you usually come across pebble beaches, so when – last year – Felix and I discovered Camber Sands, we instantly knew we wanted to come back.

Maya and Edgar loved running around everywhere.

There isn’t so much to do, in the actual village: you can see most places are closed, as they probably just open during the summer time. But coming here, for just a day, was what Felix and I were looking for.


It was extremely relaxing, and anywhere you look, is absolutely stunning.

All the houses are so cute, and make the village look so cosy.

I love walking around and seeing smoke coming out from the chimney, or at night, when most lights are off, but then you see one, shining bright, coming for a little cottage.

It warms my heart.

In the evening, we drove up to Rye, where much more is happening. We figured it would be a sleepy town during winter, just as Camber is, but we were wrong: all the restaurants were booked (good thing we ate dinner at home) and the cinema, which we booked in advance, was packed.

We watched La La Land, which we both enjoyed very much, and then made our way back into Camber, where we spent the night.


It was freezing outside, but somehow we managed to stay out most of the day, as it was so lovely to just stroll around.

I have also gathered a few clips, which I’ve just edited into a video that will go up later today – keep an eye out for that!

    That looks like such a lovely place! There are quite a few sweet little villages in the UK (particularly near the sea) that I always forget about. It just shows you don’t have to go abroad to find somewhere beautiful and charming!

    Sounds like a tucked away treasure! I found a beach like that with my family but unfortunately it was closed and became a building site for a museam. I don’t know of if the beach will reopen after the museum does but at least I still have a nice memory and photos 😊

    Hi, if you don’t mind me asking where was Edgar I didn’t see him in your YouTube vlog or in any pictures now, just wondered if he was okay or if it was my mistake.

    Love your blogs keep it up. ❀

    The fist photo is my favorite, looks amazing, the sunset with the house that looks so tiny…I love it.
    Hope you enjoyed your day in this little and cute town =)

    Your pictures are amazing as always ❀
    If you like cozy towns/sand/stunning view you would probably like brittany ( bretagne ) in France, that's where I live and it really look like Camber Sands πŸ™‚
    I also loved Yukon in Canada, I never saw something as peaceful and beautiful

    Your blog ( and yt channel ) is amazing, the photos are stunning, and it's always so interesting with it's various subject, amazing job !

    ( Sorry for bad english, I hope it's understandable )

    Marzia, I know that you never really get an insight with how or if your videos ever affect any of your viewers, but I just wanted to let you know how much it affects me. The past few months have been one crazy rollercoaster for me, and it’s been hard finding something to do to keep my mind off of my troubles. But one night, I decided to have a Marzia Marathon, and I ended up watching your videos for about 4-5 hours straight. It was one of the most relaxing nights I’ve had in a while πŸ™‚ I, personally, just wanted to thank you for putting all the work into what you do for us, because it definitely has been making a world of difference to me ❀

    Hey Marzia, I remember a few months ago I would read all your blog posts, and I haven’t done that in a while.. I have no idea why!! They make my nights so much better because all your posts are so nice and fuzzy feeling! I’m reading this as i’m about to fall asleep on my bad with good music and yummy tea. my heart is warm and happy, thank you so so much this was what I needed. Love all the pictures, (especially the Felix one!) kinda wanna go there now, haha.

    Much love from Panama,

    Karla! πŸ™‚
