There’s often great misconceptions about the US when it comes to visitors from other parts of the world. We’re so clued into their TV, their movies, even their news and politics that we think we know everything we need to and will fit in like a hand into a glove once we arrive. Yet when people visit, they often feel woefully out of the loop and realise that there’s SO much more to the states than what we see on MTV or Sky News. Before you go, there are a few things you need to remember that will definitely help you acclimatise.
The British Airways I360 is to Brighton what the London Eye is to London; a futuristic centrepiece for the city which provides a unique experience, boasts spectacular views, and bring in the tourists. Funnily enough, the architects who designed the I360 also designed the London Eye, you could say they’re doing a pretty good job designing at the moment! Opened in Late 2016 the I360 rises up its centre column to a height of 162m and boasts spectacular 360° views across the city and out to sea. The I360 is, in fact, the world’s tallest moving observation tower! The attraction looks extremely futuristic, glistens spectacularly in the sun, and is a great addition to any day in Brighton.
I remember going to farms as a youngster; the excitement of seeing all the animals, feeding them, and thinking I could actually talk to them. My favorite were the sheep and goats who nearly took your hand with them when they gobbled up the food you gave them. Now that i’m older I realize, to my disappointment, that I am no Dr Doolittle. However, the memories of visiting farms as a youngster are still very vivid and i’m sure I learnt a thing or to when I visited them!
“Can you take the service charge off the bill please?”
The idea of saying this probably fills you with dred.
Don’t worry, it’s very British of you.
