If I had to choose another city to live in, it would be Brighton. Ever since discovering it more through youtube via Zoe & Alfie, I fell in love with it's quirky and quaint character.

 I have a weird fascination with piers. It must be their history and their reason of existing. To make people happy. The skeletal structure above was an old pier that caught fire from abandonment. Piers were popular before airfares became affordable to the masses. People from the city were looking for an escape during the summer and would go to the seaside for entertainment. Now with air travel, they don't feel that it's the only place they can go to escape the city.

 The streets were small and narrow, winding around these funny looking houses lined up closely to each other. The people matched the buildings too. The atmosphere of the city felt chill and creative. Like a cooler Coney Island.

 We ate lunch at this hidden Mexican restaurant called  Carlito Burrito.  They had funny music playing that caught my ear. Not sure what the genre is called yet but it sounds like indie-electronic Mexican music. Totally into it now.

 I finally got to try Halloumi since everyone raves about it in the UK. It is literally queso frito. I thought it would be something else!

 They have an online store that ships anywhere! There's still something about magazines that you can't feel online. The limitation in size and page count feels more considered and inspirational.

 Local flowers. What a dream to be able to pick these up on the way home.

 This  thrift store  was v cool. The best part was this real photo booth that spit out film strips. It made some funny noises while it was developing and took a bit to come out. Analog technology y'all. Taught you patience.
