travel tuesday - Brighton, Eastbourne and Lewes, England


This weeks destination is a little bit of a combo. My Bf and I visited all of these places within a couple of days, all while visiting a family friend. Brighton, Eastbourne and Lewes are typical small English towns filled with heritage buildings, cafes on every corner and churches, oh the churches. It makes me want to stop and peek in every window and door, just to find out whats in there. While visiting with some of the best company in all of England, we went for a hike, we had a beach BBQ, played rock games, and watched fireworks. On our hike we visited a place called Beachyhead. Its apparently a common place in the area for people to commit suicide (jumping off the cliff), the local church continues to do drive-bys' to watch for lingering souls and offer a listening ear. I found it to be a very eerie, yet peaceful place. I heard a few of the stories, and well, theres no need to end this post on a sad note.Again, if/when you go to England, make sure to see the countryside and take sometime to trek through some small towns and villages. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.














p.s. You can still get sunburnt when its cloudy.
p.p.s.You'd be amazed what fun you can have with a pebble beach.
p.p.p.s. I love lighthouses.
