Enjoy the English summer!


Another week here and I did so many things! The week was so lovely with sun and warm weather and my French’ friend came for a long week-end in Brighton.

Between meeting new interns in Brighton, visiting the city and going to London, I didn’t realize that the flies so fast.

  • On Tuesday, I met two new interns in Brighton, from Germany. As, almost always, we went at The Crown to have a drink, enjoy the terrace and the live music.
  • On Thursday, with my manager Bella, we went to another intern’ company. The goal was to take feedback’ videos from the intern, Robin, and his manager. So, I hope in a really short time you will see these videos on YouTube (the time for me to create the video and edit all the changes on my computer)!
  • On Friday, with my friend, after a really good meal at the Lucky Beach Cafe, we went visit the Royal Pavilion.
    We enjoyed a discount on the ticket (£6, 15 instead of £12, 30) thanks to the Brighton & Hove Residents’ concessions (I asked for a council taxes paper to my host family before living).
    The Royal Pavilion was really great to visit and we really didn’t expect these two so huge and incredible rooms (the banqueting and the music rooms). So really don’t hesitate to visit it!

  • On Saturday, we enjoyed a really perfect English breakfast in a perfect place: The Corner. For my French friend who has never had an English breakfast before, it was a really great experience!

  • On Sunday, we went to London, the just-so-perfect city in the UK.
    On the National Express website we found not very expensive tickets for a Sunday. Instead of going by train, we went by bus (2h between Brighton and London Victoria) and we spend only £30 with return for both, buying the ticket only the day before.
    In London, we enjoyed a sushi restaurant, the Sticks n Sushi and after walked along the South Bank part, between the Big Ben and London Bridge. I really like this part of the city, with so many different atmospheres and place to seen.

  • On Monday, we tried the new big thing to do in Brighton: the I360 tower!
    For £12 as student, you can enjoy 25′ of incredible view on Brighton, Hove and the sea. It’s really worth it!

    After the I360, we tried another very English thing, the afternoon tea. We had it in a very luxurious, British and perfect place, the Grand hotel in Brighton. It was a little (not, very) expensive but the tea and the scones were just perfect. It something you really need to try if you come to the UK.

And so many many other things!
Almost all the pictures here have been taken by my friend, so if you want to discover more photos from her, you can go on her Instagram account: Manon_Sardin

See you next week, with I hope as much news as this week.

Bonjour jeunes gens!

Une semaine assez incroyable ici, ma meilleure amie française a eu la merveilleuse idée de venir passer quelques jours à Brighton!

Malgrès qu’elle soit arrivée durant un long week-end bien anglais – pluie, soleil, vent et pluie à nouveau – on a vraiment pu profiter de l’ambiance et la bonne humeur anglaise.

Maintenant que je suis ici depuis quelques mois, je connais suffisamment la ville pour savoir quelles sont les meilleures places à voir. Du coup, je vais partager avec vous une petite liste de mes bars / pubs préféré ici, si vous voulez découvrir des ambiances très différentes et bien anglaise:

A la semaine prochaine!
