This past weekend I traveled to the coast of England to the incredible city of Brighton. It is a college town, so the whole place is very young. I felt like I fit right in.
Additionally, being on the seaside, it is a very touristy destination, especially in the summer. The colder weather meant there were fewer people than normal. This created the perfect ambiance for a first-time visitor. The tourist attractions didn’t overpower the heart of the city, and I immediately fell in love.
By the end of the trip, my friend Genevieve and I decided that we will do our best to live there one day. It’s still a city and has all of our favorite bits about city life, but quieter than London. It was full of cute cafes and charity shops (or thrift stores) and the vibe was just incredible.
We were lucky to visit on this beautiful sunny day, and the beach was quiet since it is the off-season. The water was so beautifully blue and it made the whole day feel like it was a meant-to-be moment for me.
