The first week in England ends...
In Activity we were going to Mini Golf, it was very funny, because it was Pirates Mini Golf ;) But I must say: German Mini Golf is better, it´s more interesting and difficult...
At the lessons we were watching "Captain America", now we have to write a review of 300 words for the movie....
... of stocks outside the door - no longer in use, perhaps because the clientele is more refined these days? We had a wander through the village and found a sweet little fruit shop selling delicious organic produce, and bought some raspberries, strawberries and cherries to eat on the way. We then drove to Friday Street. The approach is via a single track lane that cuts deep into the forest floor, with fifteen foot high banks and tree roots hanging down to ...
A beautiful sunny autumn day in England deserves a beach side day trip!
A group of 6 expat Aussies; Abby, Amanda, Brad, Josh, Kate and I made our way on the coach to the sea for the day. Meandering the lane ways and markets, sitting on the pebble beaches and for the crazy others, jumping in the 10degree ocean for a swim!
The day wouldn't be complete without a trip to the funfair on the pier and an off licence session in the park! What a perfect Sunday!
... br> We rode a few more rides before heading home. It was a lovely day, with the perfect weather attached! Blue skies, sun shinning and clouds off in the far away distance. As we walked back to the train station the town was coming alive for a Saturday night. I think I’ll have to return for a weekend trip next time.
We waved goodbye to the ocean and to the pebble sand, and Ferris wheel, back through the country and into the hustle and bustle of the big city once ...

- Vietnam: not a first for neither of us; the plan is to explore South Vietnam a bit more than we had time to do on our last trip. If time allows we'll go relax a bit on Phu Quoc island; if not we'll head straight to meander through the Mekong Delta before reaching Ho Chi ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grey's Hotel Brighton
My parents stayed at Grey's for 6 days and were totally happy with the accomodation. Terry was always very welcoming and served a very nice breakfast. Apparently the fresh cut fruit salad was the highlight of every breakfast.
On the last morning they had to leave very early in the morning, around six, and Terry got up and made them some coffee and again a delicious fruit salad.
The only little downside, the door of the room, king size room, was not sealed properly and so light was shining through all night.
Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.
Fantastic Few Day's
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at this lovely hotel for a few days. Terry, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly.
The hotel has been recently refurbished and extremely well designed, we stayed in room 7 which had a modern four poster, lovely bedding and inch thick carpets. The hotel itself has been put together with great attention to detail and is stylish without being too serious.
All of this and the wonderful breakfast (everything ranging from fresh fruit salad and pastries to the good old full English) meant that we had a great stay and would not hesitate to return or recommend the Grey's to others.
Mi novio y yo recientemente nos alojamos en este encantador hotel por un par de días. Terry, la dueña, era muy acogedora y simpática. El hotel había sido reformado recientemente, y extremadamente bien diseñado. Nos alojamos en la habitación 7, la cual tenía una moderna cama de 4 pilares, fabulosa ropa de cama y gruesas moquetas de 2.5 cm. El hotel en sí, lo han conformado poniendo gran atención al detalle, y tiene estilo sin ser muy serio. Todo eso, y un maravilloso desayuno (con todo, desde ensalada de fruta fresca y pastelitos, hasta el tan bueno y conocido desayuno inglés completo), quiere decir que tuvimos una genial estancia y no dudaría en regresar o recomendar el Grey´s a los demás.
Fab little hotel
My boyfriend and I stayed at Greys in mid July for two nights.
The hotel is in a great location within easy reach of the town centre and near some great bars and restaurants in Kemp Town.
The owner Terry was lovely as were the guys from London who served us our breakfast. (The breakfasts are good too!)
We booked a standard double which was very well decorated and equipped and perfect for a weekend away.
The parking is a bit of a pain in Brighton but we plonked the car down at the marina as we werent going to use it all weekend and then got the little train back to the pier.
Mi novio y yo nos alojamos en el Grey´s a mediados de julio durante dos noches. El hotel está muy bien ubicado, a una corta distancia del centro de la ciudad y cerca de unos fantásticos bares y restaurantes de la ciudad de Kemp. La dueña Terry, era encantadora, así como los tipos de Londres quienes nos servían el desayuno. (¡Los desayunos también están buenos!) Reservamos una habitación doble, la cual estaba muy bien decorada y equipada, y era perfecta para una escapada de fin de semana. El aparcamiento es algo frustrante en Brighton, pero dejamos el coche en el puerto deportivo ya que no lo íbamos a utilizar durante todo el fin de semana, y así cogimos el trencito de regreso al muelle.
Grey's is a really marvellous find. It's beautifully furnished, and imparts a real sense of luxury and comfort from the moment you walk in the front door. My en-suite bedroom was stylishly appointed, and the bed itself one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The breakfast was excellent, served by the affable host, Terry Sessions, in a bright and most pleasant dining room. All in all, the whole visit was a delight. I shall certainly return.
Grey´s es realmente un maravilloso hallazgo. Está muy bien amueblado, y ofrece una sensación de lujo y comodidad desde el momento en que entras por la puerta principal. Mi habitación con baño privado estaba diseñada con mucho estilo, y la cama en sí, era la más cómoda en la que jamás haya dormido. El desayuno fue excelente, servido por la amable anfitriona, Terry Sessions, en un comedor bien iluminado y muy agradable. En general, toda la estancia fue un encanto. Sin duda regresaré.
Fantástico lugar para alojarse en Brighton
Lo pasé genial alojándome en este hotel. La habitación en la que me alojé era impresionante, cuando entré vi unas ventanas que iban del techo hasta el piso, y una increíble cama de 4 pilares. La decoración era genial, el ambiente fantástico, el desayuno fue el mejor desayuno que haya comido jamás en un hotel, y Terry, la dueña, no podría haber sido más encantadora y servicial. Sin duda regresaré a Brighton y al hotel Grey´s tan pronto como sea posible.
Great place to stay in Brighton
I had a wonderful time staying at this Hotel. The room I stayed in had a real wow factor when I walked in with huge floor to ceiling windows and an amazing four poster bed. The decor was great , the atmosphere was great , the breakfast was the best Hotel breakfast I have had and Terry the owner couldn't have been more charming or helpful. I will definitely return to Brighton and Grey's Hotel as soon as possible.
Great, stylish little hotel
My fiance took me to Brighton for a romantic get away from London and he couldn't have found a better place. It's location is great, a minute from the sea and around 10 minutes walk to all the great restaurants and bars in central Brighton. The hotel had just been renovated (or just opened I think) so all fittings, furnishings, toiletries etc were of a very high standard and very stylish. Our room on the top floor had a gorgeous feature wall and lovely bay windows letting in lots of light and some sea views, a peek in a another room showed a beautiful four poster bed and a different style wall, so you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the finer details in this hotel. Finally, the host was very friendly and helpful; all in all, we were very impressed.
