A stroll along the seaside - Southsea, Hampshire

So in order to go somewhere, we need to start somewhere. The place that we start our journeys is Portsmouth in Hampshire.

Living by the seaside really has its benefits and we try, whenever we can, to get the kids down to the wonderful seafront.

Southsea is so much more than a seaside as well, it is is own microcosm of culture, food, art and more. I'd like to explore Southsea, bit by bit, for those either who want to come here (or even those that have been here a while!) to discover and explore it for themselves.

Blissful in Brighton

I grew up on the south coast of England. Brighton was a place that was always close by, but for whatever reason seemed too big and too far for my teenage brain to comprehend.
Last year, for his birthday, I bought my husband a night photography course along Brighton seafront.  And, as part of my new way forward to clear any FOMO from being a travel writer, I booked up a cheap room at the Jury’s Inn by Brighton train station.
The thinking behind it was that we would load the kids up on the train and go. Incidentally, we ended up taking the car for the 1.5-hour drive and parked overnight at the Trafalgar Street carpark for £16.
