ESCAPE | london/brighton/seaford

i travelled to the UK last weekend to visit my bff G, whom i hadn't seen for almost 4 months (crazy!). we were mostly in London, but we also took a short daytrip to Brighton and the white chalk cliffs in Seaford. i'd say that was actually my favourite part of the trip – seaside, sunshine, colourful houses, lots of food (limited edition strawberry Oreos, oh lord), and true relaxing time (and burnt nose, sweat and sore feet). i liked being in London too, but i only got reassured of what i had been thinking about it before: that it's too hectic, posh and trendy for me to live in. however, i fell in love with Barbican and £3 meal deals.

this was my first time travelling to the UK after 5 years and i have to tell you i had real problems with understanding the accent. even though English is the language i study/work in and use the most, majority of the native speakers i know are either American or Canadian, so i completely forgot about the British accent. i felt really embarrassed, lol.

the day before, i went to see the new Nick Cave film 'One More Time With Feeling', which was unbelievably touching, and made me get the new record straight after it was released in the morning. i listened to it the whole trip, which was strange knowing that so many places we were visiting played an important role in the making of the album. hmmm.

  2. For me London is beautiful place to visit not to live in.
    If you feeling London is hectic place, can you than notice big difference between London and Berlin? As I had no chance yet to visit it. I always thought every capital is hectic though.
    I'm really enjoying looking at your pics, burnt Brighton Pier is amazing!
