Once we decided that we had to stay in the UK longer in order to save, we decided the only way we could handle it without going loopy, would be to get back to Brighton. So, no matter how hard it seemed, we would be in the place we love most in England and be near friends too. It has meant long, painful commutes, but it really is the only place to be. It continues to surprise me and make me smile.
Brighton is full of free spirits. Though it can quite rightly be accused of having too many Londoners moving in and over-gentrifying it, like New York, the change can be what continues to make it interesting.
It has lots of art, oddness, fun and tasty things.
Lots of new shops with cool and funky things to buy, but it really is the junk shops, charity shops and flea markets that have the most magical finds
There are always things going on and although it can be a bit of a nightmare in the summer, the beach is where everyone heads when the sun is out.
Some say a pebble beach isn’t a real beach. But what better for BBQs than being able to plonk a disposable one on the fireproof ground and hold your wine glass up by burying the stem in pebbles 🙂
Wherever you go in the city, you can find a senses of humour and a sense of fun.
You also find grandeur, often faded, where this party town has been having fun for centuries.
