MY LITTLE TRIP TO EASTBOURNE

Good morning my friends!! I have many stories to tell us, I love my job 😊. I hope you know who am I, yes, Rocío.

Well, first of all, It is a sunny day today while I’m writing this post, that’s why  I’m happy too. The latest Friday, I’ve had to travel to Eastbourne due to my job and I took an opportunity to visit this gorgeous place.

As I live in Hove, I had to take a bus from Hove to Rottingdean and then change the bus there to go to Eastbourne. Yeah, I think one day I told there that it is awful for me to travel on the bus, but it must be like that, and the worst is that the trip lasts 3 hours one way and 3 hours back. During the travel to Eastbourne, there are a lot of green areas, including sheep which are grazing. It’s sincerely beautiful.

Well, when I arrived in Eastbourne, the first that I did it was looking for Eastbourne Pier (While I saw several churches such as The Holy Trinity Church or The Central Methodist Church, but they were closed and I only took some pictures) Yes, I know seems Brighton Pier, but every pier has them attractive.

 There weren’t many people because of it was an ordinary day and everybody I suppose It was working. Then I walked down the long promenade.

How I felt like drinking a coffee, I decided to look for a cafe shop, and I visited the main street of the shops called Terminus Road. I had a drink a coffee in Nero Cafe and charge my phone, it surprised me the socket was put on the benches.Then I returned to the promenade.

I wanted to see the famous beaches huts that I saw on the internet. I knew these huts were in Marine Parade, but I was walking the wrong way and a lovely man told me the right way. It was funny, despite the fact that, I was walking a lot of time looking for the huts and I did not see them.

I decided to ask another lady, she told me that I had to walk a little more and that I could go to those huts, in fact, she offered me she could accompany me. She walked quickly because she had stayed with her sister in the seaport.

During our walk, she asked me many things, he definitely seemed very friendly. Finally, I saw the famous beaches huts and I took some pictures. In addition, I asked for many Swiss girls if they took me one picture jumping!! It was amusing.

On the other hand, when I was walking, I saw an enormous park called Princess Park and I took an advantage to visit when I came back through the promenade. I loved Princess Park, It is an enormous park with a duck pond including children areas for play. There, I sat about half hour seeing the area and thinking that I’m living a good experience and I must take and advantage of it.

As it was late and I was afraid if I would miss my bus so that I decide took my bus in Eastbourne pier and returned to Hove.

And…What did I do on Saturday? Yes, I believe I’m telling all my life here ha – ha, but I think It’s a fantastic idea to do this if you are planning visited Brighton&Hove and his near areas for work or studies, the information is an important instrument that everybody must know.

On Saturday, I visited North Laine with an intern friend like me.

We saw a lot of vintage shops there and a unique environment, it was a novel situation because there aren’t a lot of vintage shops where I live in my country and this type of environment.

It was fancy to see one Spanish shop, where it sells Spanish products. In my opinion, maybe it doesn’t sell typically tinned preserves of Galicia, and it’s a shame because it is a very famous product handmade.

That’s all by the moment!!

SPENDING A DAY IN BRIGHTON…

Hi everybody,

Rocío is here again 😊. How is it going? Today, I want to talk about my second Saturday in Brighton. Yes, I don’t know a lot of outstanding places now, but everybody can look for one of them in many pages such as Trip Ad visor or guide pages, and this is that I did.

And I thought I must visit the Royal Pavilion. If you are thinking in visit Brighton, I suggest it is a lovely place to go. I took the bus near my host house and I stopped in North Street (this street is a crowded road where you buy a lot of things, and there are many shops, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, fish & chips, and everything that you need). (I stopped here because The Royal Pavilion is located in North Street).

Well, I continue talking about The Royal Pavilion, this place has amazing gardens outside, and if you visit inside it is impressive (the ticket cost around 15/16 pounds with audio guide).  The Royal Pavilion was the residence where George IV spent his time in Brighton. And it becomes in the favourite place of George IV to live due to his wonderful areas and his intense social life. What I liked most of The Royal Pavilion was her dining room. It is indescribable, there are a big dinner table and enormous & gorgeous lamp in the ceiling. You must visit yes or yes 😊.

In addition, the afternoon arrived, and I decided I must visit The Brighton Pier. There, there were a lot of rides for children (and not so children), what it is more, it was very funny because people were raised by one of them.

Then I was walking on his longer beach, the waves were fantastic, and I spent a lot of time saw it. I took some pictures because I believed It was a good moment for this. In general, the area is cosmopolitan that’s why I love it, including different types of races, people, cultures, that is, different lifestyle who is otherwise where I live in Spain.

Finally, I’m going to do a mention of the public transport, yes, another time too 😊. Certainly, I miss my car, I’m not used to taking a bus every day, furthermore, people and I must change the bus on the Marine Gate stop 2 day ago, because the bus has had one problem that I don’t know what happens, consequently, people and I must wait 15 minutes for another one.

So… that is my experience about this weekend!!! See you for the next week so I’m going to write my experience living in Brighton during my internship here!!!

 

Bye, bye, my friends!!

P.S: You can leave a reply if you like my post!! Cheer up!!

 

 

 

 

My experience as an International Trade Intern

Hello people!!

How are things!! Let’s me introduce myself.

My name is Rocio and I’m a Spanish International Trade Intern. I’m coming to Brighton to improve my English and develop myself (living alone without my parents or something like that) and look this amazing area too. I arrived at Brighton 4 days ago and I’m living with a host family, I think is the best way to practice English, what is more, you must speak a lot in spite of the fact you could do it wrong, the fact, you don’t have afraid of if you commit mistakes.

My host mother is called Tina and she is a lovely person. She has two children, Cassian who is 14 years old and Millie who is 17 years old. When I have planned this internship, I’m afraid of my English because I believed I will understand nothing, but I realise that I know more English than I thought. I understand everything, although I need improve my pronunciation.

 

 

This is the street where I’m living. It called Lloyd Road.

 

I have not been able to visit many places now, but I want to see many things like Brighton Pier or Royal Pavilion that I’m going to go there.

Another point that I want to comment is the public transport. I must take a bus every day, and It surprises me bus drivers drive so fast including doing strong stops that you must care if you are standing. 😊

On the other hand, people are lovely. The firstly day I went to the Hove Park near where I’m living, and I asked many people a lot of questions about interesting things that I watched, and people answer pleasantly.

If you are reading this post I want to say everybody it could do it, and It will be a gratifying experience.

Finally, I leave some photos that I took that I believe there are interesting.

Regards,

ROCIO REY.

 

I took this photo because in Galicia there isn’t this type of vans where serve coffee.

 

I took this photo to show the difference between a college and university.

 

I took this photo because it’s interesting that this park bench has a description of an important person who died.

Exploring Eastbourne

Hi 🙂

The bus system in Brighton is really great, and there are many places to visit with your bus tickets. With a citySaver ticket you can take every bus between Shoreham-by-Sea and Saltdean, as you can see on the picture below. But the networkSaver ticket takes you even further away. I explored the limits of my networkSaver ticket last Friday and went to Eastbourne. Next Friday I will go and visit Lewes, and next Tuesday I’ll see Shoreham-by-Sea. If you want to know more about the many different ticket offers yo can click on the picture below. Continue reading
