England Day 5 – Brighton

Brighton, England - Kristie Jean

I had the most delicious bowl of porridge and fruit to start the day today. SO GOOD.

I stayed at the Motel Schmotel, a little B&B only a couple blocks from the beach. It is not a super fancy place but man do they know how to make breakfast. Plus the name, how you can resist a place with a name like that?

I spent the day wandering around Brighton and checking out all the shops. The lanes are a very cool area with tiny little streets going every which way. After checking out the lanes I made my way back to the pier and beach to snap a few more photos since there was fewer people around compared to the day before.

At the end of the day I had some time so I decided to check out the British Airways i360 which is an observation tower. You go up to 138 metres and it is apparently the world’s tallest moving observation tower. I am not completely sure it is worth the sixteen pounds it costs but you do get an amazing view if you have the money to spare.

Brighton is a strange mix of a beach town and a city. You go down by the seaside and you find all the fish and chip shops and little stores that sell flip-flops, knickknacks and other such things. Walk up a couple blocks from the beach and you all of a sudden feel like you are in a city with stores like H&M, Urban Outfitters and Primark. I suppose it is a bit like Los Angeles, though you’d be more inclined to be wearing sweatshirts and pants instead of shorts and tank tops. Definitely a place worth checking out if you are in England.

Tomorrow I head to a hotel near the airport so I guess today was my last day of England adventures. It is crazy how fast a week can go and there is definitely a lot of more England I wish I could see. I am excited to sleep in my own bed though!
