While now frantically working on an essay analysing the relation of the media coverage of Watergate and Vietnam War (I never said it wasn’t interesting!), the only thing that distracts me from endless online archives and another walk to the local coffee bar is and has always been the thought of the sea. Is it just me or does the sound of waves calm you down too?
On one of the first days in 2013 I felt the same way and hopped on the train to Brighton. That day there was even enough time (and grey sky) to head to the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and the Royal Pavillon. The moment I spotted these two beauties I couldn’t believe I always pretty much limited Brighton to its beach.
Another lovely extra was the little café on Queen’s Road that I haven’t come across before. It’s called Sue’s Snacks and has a super cosy interior and the b e s t scones in town, I’m not joking! The owners were absolutely lovely as well and treated us like old friends… It’s places like these that make the atmosphere of Brighton so vibrant – even on the coldest of days.
