After 10 years living in Cheshire, I'd kinda forgotten about the clean air that smells salty and stays with you all day. I'd forgotten about the pebbles and activity of our Southern gem.
This weekend, my boyfriend (Bob Barley) visited Brighton, my homeland. Originally, the trip was planned for the purpose of seeing relatives, but as soon as I stepped out of the car, I knew I would have to visit all my favourite hotspots.
On Sunday, we decided to visit Brighton and I suddenly realised why I had missed it so much. I felt as if I fitted in there, because so many people there come from different places. The sunshine helped refresh my memories of long, sunny days on the beach.
My favourite aspect of Brighton is the shopping! The lanes, especially are so quaint as well as having all the high street stores. Everything there is a little more expensive than here in the North, but I'm willing to pay for that type of atmosphere. There people there are so friendly and laid-back.
Brighton is also home to my football team (who got promoted this week!), so there's also a place for sports fans.
All the friends I have in Brighton say it's one of the best places to go 'pubbing and clubbing'. I've been there for a night out a couple of times and I'd definitely agree. Restaurants such as the Cactus and 'Ask' are two of my favourites and there are clubs down every street.
I suppose it's the atmosphere and cleanliness that makes Brighton different from any other city. The beaches have won awards for cleanliness, and the pier and attractions are a welcome break for everyone. We're already planning to go back.
