Good Morning World!
Visiting new places is always something I find most enjoyable, and I have spend many a day out trying to explore as many new places in England as I possibly can, drawing in its culture. This hobby then becomes especially pleasing when it means I can visit some of my favourite people as well. A few weeks ago I went to visit one of my very good friends who lives down in Brighton for University, I hadn’t seen her for months and nor anyone else from back home, so it was a lovely idea that myself and 2 other friends went down to visit her in this beautiful seaside town.
Saturday morning began the start of our jam-packed weekend, and with great hunger and anticipation for the day ahead we began with breakfast at “The Breakfast Club”. I had heard about this restaurant before, but had never eaten here previously but just from looking at the menu I would right in saying that I would love the food. I treated myself to delicious fresh berry pancakes covered in golden syrup and freshly whipped cream. The other three girls all had wonderfully prepared hot chocolates and were far less naughty than me by choosing a more savoury option.
After a very filling breakfast we decided to explore not only the beautiful and eloquent lanes of Brighton (which dare I say are home to some of the most appealing little shops, and a massive selection of jewellers), but the beautiful town of Lewes just a couple or so miles outside of Brighton. This was a wonderful adventure as this little historic town was filled with gorgeous independent shops lined up row to row, gorgeous mountain views and tiny traditional bakery’s with homemade bread and pastries.
Our afternoon was very jam packed, girls being girls, we decdied to check out Brighton’s huge shopping centre. I will admit I spent more than my fair share of money on clothes which I seemed to convince myself that I needed but ultimately didn’t. I think this was true for the four of us. This was then followed by an evening back at my friends house eating pizza on the sofa and watching Moana.
SUNDAY then started off with us getting DUM DUM doughnuts for us to eat on the beach. For anyone that knows me they are aware that my sugar consumption is higher than that of the average human being, so the idea of having doughnuts on the beach for breakfast was something I was jumping for joy over. However, the beach, especially in British winter isn’t the nicest place to be on a cold windy Brighton morning, but I guess I can’t win at everything.
We spent the remainder of the day on the Pier, and for those who have been to Brighton before knows that the pier is filled with arcade games, fair ground rides and slot machines, the perfect place to go and waste an afternoon. To which I did and managed to change a vast amount of pound coins into 2p’s for the slot machines. I was surprised at how long I was able to last judging by my history of notorious bad luck.
Let my know what your experiences of Brighton are like?
