English Countryside – Brighton, Bath and Beyond….

Brighton Beach. Southern England

Brighton is really the closest thing the UK has to a beach. Actually it is a beach but not like we know them. The sand is pebbles and they are large ones at that, but it is a nice coastal town that is worth a visit if you have time to get out of London. It takes an hour and a half by train but the cost of a return train ticket (approx £20 pp) is not much cheaper than hiring a car so if we had our time again we would drive therefore giving us more freedom….

UK – English countryside, Scotland and Wales

A lazy day of punting. Students earn a few quid taking passengers around Exclusive and beautiful Cambridge University

We were very keen to see the English countryside and then make our way to the neighbouring Scotland and Wales before we ventured overseas to mainland Europe. Did you know that Scotland, England and Wales are not technically independent countries. The country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain (but don’t make the same mistake Pete made and tell a Scotsman that). We hired a car and spent the next week or so driving around Great Britain. Cambridge University was our first stop which was an hour and a half north of London…

London – High Tea and Brunch, a bit la di da for a backpacker!!!!

Sipping tea from Paul Smith finest teacups

When visiting London, treating yourself to High Tea is a must. While Pete booked himself into a few Soccer games, Elissa enjoyed an afternoon at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge with Georgie Spring. Afternoon Tea at The Berkeley is described as mouth-watering Prêt-à-Portea delicacies with a fashionista twist.

Finally we are posting from the continent we are currently residing in…. (thanks for your patience loyal viewers)

Before departing Australia, we arranged UK holiday working visas giving us the option to base ourselves in London, find some temporary work, but mainly to be on the doorstep of Europe and take advantage of cheap flights and trains to as many cities as possible.
