Brighton's Most Spectacular Viewpoint

•••
Located on the bustling seafront, the British Airways i360 would perhaps look odd if it were anywhere other than ever-quirky Brighton, South East England. Perhaps the closest some of us might come to real-life UFO experience; the i360 tower is quite the spectacle towering 450 feet above the famous pebble beach, ensconced by a huge shiny doughnut and visi[...]

12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

The clocks have gone back, the days are getting darker and random celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to power up the Christmas lights across the nation. Yep, it’s official: Winter is coming. So when my girlfriends and I decided on a little, British seaside town for a much needed weekend away, we were aware it might be a tiny bit out of season. But [...]

Sand-tastic! The Sand Sculpture Festival in Brighton

•••
As one of the few Travelettes that is permanently travelling (aka homeless with a suitcase) and the girl who wrote this post about being a world travelling digital nomad, it was somewhat of a shock to end up back in Britain for a few months for a few different reasons (not least, I'm an Auntie for the first time, yay!).

Best of England - from Brighton to Liverpool

Travellers visiting the UK for the first time normally follow a set route; a few days in London, a quick visit to the colleges in Oxford or Cambridge, a detour to Bath to see the Roman Bath’s and Stonehenge. Then it’s a straight journey north via York to Edinburgh. And although all of these cities are great places to hang out for a few days, there are ci[...]

The Travelettes Guide to South Australia

•••
I may be slightly biased, being born and raised in this wonderful part of the world, but I stand firmly behind my statement that South Australia is one of the most underrated destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. It is astounding to me that this beautiful pocket of Australia is so often overlook by travelers who flee to the big smoke of Sydney or the beac[...]

I always took the EU for granted. I took the political stability for granted, I took the travels for granted, the invisible borders, I took the cultural exchange for granted, the festivals, the food, the music, I took the internships in Brussels for granted, I took the relative peace for granted, I took the freedom that spanned way over borders for granted.
