When I think about all the places I’ve been lucky enough to travel to in the past, it always hits me: I don’t travel that much around the UK itself. I’ve lived in this amazing country for 7 years now, and I have only visited a handful of places. There is still so much to see and do! That’s why I have consciously been trying to arrange more road trips, weekend breaks and excursions to various sites and cities here.
Brighton is such an easy trip to organise from London – it takes just over an hour on the train to get down to the coast and bury your toes in the sand… well, pebbles to be painfully specific, but it’s still a beach!
As my fellow adventurer Pavel (check out his site Curious Pavel) wisely noted, there are people who come from all over the world to see the UK, and those of us lucky enough to live here are often guilty of overlooking it for faraway destinations. So next time you have no plans for the weekend, jump on the train and have a spontaneous trip to a place you haven’t explored before! You’ll be surprised how much wonder is just waiting to be discovered!
Hope you enjoyed this brief tour of Brighton. Did I miss any major attractions or maybe a secret local cafe? Let me know in the comments! Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog for more adventures around the UK and worldwide.
