On my second day in the UK, I took a train in the morning to visit Kristin and to visit the beach city of Brighton! I haven’t seen her in a long time so it was great catching up. It was a sunny day and great weather (although it did get a bit too hot at a point), and I enjoyed it very much. The gardens have flowers throughout in a mixture of pastel colors and I couldn’t stop admiring their color combinations. The area had architecture similar to the one in this picture, as well as the Royal Pavilion right around the corner. It was unexpected design, but fit in nicely with the garden.
After walking around this area, we walked to the beach and the pier. The pier was full of rides and ice cream and little shops, and there was even an arcade that not only had games for kids, but gambling for adults. I’m not sure why they’d put both in the same location where kids could easily confuse them. Anyway, we then walked around some more and then headed to Kristin’s flat. It was a cute little place and there, we watched some TV and napped since the weather outside was so hot.
Left her place, walked around some more, headed back to the train station and I was on my way back to London!
Nightlife in the city of London – thanks to some connections (or maybe Wendy paying for everything haha) we got in VIP status to Vendome, an exclusive club in London. It was a lot of fun! They played lots of the usuals you’d hear in clubs in the US, and of course, they had to play some Michael Jackson!
