Brighton for the Weekend

After having living in London for nearly a year and a half, I've definitely started to notice myself becoming a bit immune to the amazing places that I live near. When I visited the south bank recently I realised how little I actually get out and see the city I live in, and also to further that along, how little I've taken advantage of the brilliant travel links that living in London also provides. As I've recently met someone who is just as keen on travelling out of London, it wasn't long before we'd planned a little weekend away together. After several hassles with out sorting out accommodation (our Air BnB cancelled on us two days before we were due to go!), we booked into an actual B&B, took a much later train to Brighton than originally planned, and managed to survive the journey in one piece.

After arriving we had a little walk around, walked along the beach (I had to see the sea, I just miss it too much!), visited a few pubs and then found an amazing Mexican restaurant that served some seriously lovely cocktails while we were waiting for a table. Annoyingly the weather was pretty rubbish, and the only bag that I had wasn't exactly waterproof so I couldn't take my camera with me around on the Saturday, hence the disappointing lack of photos of anything.

On the Sunday it was more of the same, just some casual walking around along the pier and to see the Pavillion in daylight (after only seeing it late at night on our walk back to the hotel). It was just really quite nice to get out of London and away from university and all the stress that's currently waiting around every corner with revision and  coursework deadlines starting to sneak closer and closer. Even though I had a bit of a stress on the Sunday and we had to dash back to London so I could meet up with a friend to go and see Marina & the Diamonds, it was still such a lovely weekend. It is so underrated to just escape stuff for the weekend, and with exams coming up this was probably one of the last times we're gonna get to properly spend time with each other for quite a while.

Brighton itself is also the loveliest place, I just wish I could have spent more time just walking around enjoying it on the Sunday instead of stressing out like I did. The Lanes look like the coolest place, with lots of little cafes offering all sorts of foods, especially of the vegan and vegetarian variety. We're already talking of going back, we've just got to find somewhere in our busy schedules to fit it in!

Thanks for reading!
