Feeling rather English…

After a busy few days and work Maz and I are now half way through our first weekend in Brighton. Its been great so far!  After introducing our UK office to the concept of Friday afternoon beers we then headed down to Brighton beach for some fish’n’chips.  Maz also got a side order of Mushy Peas to fully Englishify the experience.  It was a beautiful summer sunset on the beach and a perfect evening to wander around for a while before heading home.

On our way home we attempted to pick up some beers to sample with our dinner but unfortunately we couldn’t find any that were cold to buy!  Whilst they sell alcohol in the supermarket, its just on the shelf not in the fridge!  We couldn’t find a bottle-o around here either so we ended up lining some brews in the fridge to try the next day!

On Saturday (today) we ventured out of Brighton for about an hour on the train.  Our destination was the village of Arundel which has an awesome castle!  Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take any photos inside but we got plenty of snaps outside.  It was sweet to wander around the village/town and it was once again beautiful weather.

Tomorrow we’re planning on spending the day in Brighton.  Our next few weekends are already booked up so it will be good to just spend some time in the city we’re living in.  We have a few memorable shops that we visited last time we were here that we’re keen to visit again so overall it should be a fairly relaxing day.

Anyhow – I’ve uploaded some photos to facebook of what we’ve been up to so far.  You can see the album here:

These photos will all make it onto Picasa at some stage but for now this was the easiest way to share them!
