The London & Brighton Trip 2016

Travelling is one of the things that makes me incredibly happy, even though this means I visit the same city over and over again. There is something about London that I can't explain. When I step one foot on London ground I get all excited and the weird thing is it never stops. While other people are in love with Paris, New York City or Rome I can't get enough of this British city across the pond.

Now this time around I wanted to do something different and visit another city while I was there. I've always wanted to go to Brighton and since it's only 30 minutes away from Gatwick airport I thought this was my chance to visit the seaside.
I started the day with a stack of pancakes at Café Coho and visited the Brighton Pier, Pavilion and The Lanes right after that. I have to say it was a bit lonely being on my own with a heavy suitcase following alongside me, but once I took the train to London all those feelings disappeared. I had never really traveled alone to another country before so for me it was a whole new experience.

In London I went to a small hotel in Paddington, took a quick nap – I woke up at 3 AM that morning- and shopped till I dropped. For me a London trip isn't completed without the following things:
- Going to Whole Foods to get the Guacamole and tortilla chips. They are the best late night hotel snack!
- Same goes for cake from Lola's. I had the salted caramel cake -it was as good as it sounds- and the guy behind the counter even gave me a bigger slice because they were almost closing. I love him for that! :)
- Trying out new places. I have a London food list in my phone with places where I want to eat. A bit sad maybe, but they just have way better things over there. I am happy that I can now cross Shake Shack, Joe & the Juice, Monmouth Coffee, Bluebird Tea Co. and Café Coho of that list.

As you can see I love food way too much haha!

I also went to the National History Museum with Laura. I met her through blogging and it was so lovely to finally meet her in real life. The museum itself was also very interesting and it gave me a magical Harry Potter vibe. For the rest of the three days I shopped, drank many juices from Joe & the Juice and strolled around the city. I also took a lot of photos along the way so you can enjoy the London vibe with me!

And to top it all off I’ve booked a new trip for January, so I will be back before you know it!
