4 Hours in Brighton & A Beach Heavy Photo Diary

4 Hours in Brighton | Essential Twenty

Despite it being one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, until 2 weeks ago I’d never hit the south coast town of Brighton. I’m not a big beach lover, despite the chilled out vibe of a seaside town, so I try to avoid them as much as possible. However, people rave about how much they love Brighton so I had to give it a shot, especially when I only paid £20 for a train!

2 Hours In Kirkby Lonsdale

2 Hours in Kirkby Lonsdale | Essential Twenty

Over the summer I spent around two weeks in Lancashire. Just touching distance from The Lake District, it always seems rude not to head into Cumbria for a day or two. Although if you ask Jack, South Lakes are still part of Lancashire (even though they haven’t been for his entire life).

11 Hours in Edinburgh | Essential Twenty

Whilst I feel that I am fairly well travelled, in reality that’s a total lie. I’ve spent a lot of time in Spain, a few weeks in America and, besides a few other trips to Europe over my 22 years, that’s it really. In fact, until last week I’d never even ventured north of Cumbria. That’s right, I’d never crossed the border into sister Scotland. But being invited to see An Act Of Kindness at the Edinburgh Fringe gave me the kick up the bum I needed to take a trip to the capital and spend a mere 11 hours in Edinburgh.

The Scotch Whisky Experience, Edinburgh

The Scotch Whisky Experience | Essential Twenty

I’m going to start this post by saying I’m not a whisky drinker. I don’t like the smell, and the one time I tasted it I thought it tasting like I was eating a tree. I just don’t like whisky. However, Jack is. And whilst killing time in Edinburgh before we saw An Act Of Kindness, we popped into The Scotch Whisky Experience. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but boy am I glad we took the trip.
