3 January 18: Fantastic funfairs

Once upon a time, a friend told me she was scared of heights.

She later divulged that she’d pushed herself right out of her comfort zone and gone on a big wheel in Russia. Her reason for being brave? There was thick snow on the ground and she figured she’d have a soft landing if she fell off.

I love funfairs – the smells, the melee and, of course, the psychedelic colours. Row upon row of flashing, jewel-like lights and painted signs that break all colour ‘rules’ but manage to look so right. I find them deeply aesthetically inspiring.

What’s your favourite (or least favourite) fairground ride? Loving the waltzer (‘Scream if you want to go faster!!!’ 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻).
