For the past year I have been dying to get down to Brighton. I hear amazing things about the beach, nightlife, and shopping there. So I made sure that this year I would pay it a visit.

Unfortunately, it was only a day trip, and I wish I could have had more time down there. I felt so serene and at peace just lying there on the beach, catching some sun, feeling the cool ocean breeze blowing over me.

Brighton is a beach city on the south end of England. It was about a 2 hour coach ride out of London, so a day trip is very possible. There is a train that gets there faster, but it costs about twice as much as the bus, so I chose the more affordable option. What’s another 40 minutes, really?

As long as you have something to lay on top of, and sandals to walk from point A to point B, you’ll be fine! I kind of prefer it…no sand in secret places!
