eastbourne + beachy head + birling gap

our last stop in south england was eastbourne (sussex). we have stayed only one night in a really nice old hotel at the sea-side, but have managed also do the nice walk (3 hours trekking tour) to beachy head & birling gap ... and to swim in the ocean :)

eastbourne was very similar to our last stop brighton, just the tourists here were on average 50 years older then the folks we have seen in brighton. whole eastbourne appeared like an old age home to me.

our next stop? southampton ... well, you have to go deep into eastern europe in order to see a city so run-down as southampton => feeling like at home :-)

even at the sea-side the are almost no cafes, restaurants, no promenade for pedestrians ... just huge parking places in front of the ferries, traffic roads and much much empty space in superior location ... and what about the titanic, which left southampton for its first and final trip? you will not find any titanic ship / museum / model in the harbour ... just a titanic pub which we've found by accident and where i've had few beers with quite old local folks :-)

but anyway, we liked the remaining historic sites of southampton a lot: the survived parts of the medieval city walls, old city gates, few nice houses, the ruin of the church tower in the middle of the main street from arundel tower (arundel gate?) to the harbour ,,,

back to london / collector blog about our trip to south england

and yes, in southhamton we have had our most expensive accommodation in south england. probably because there are not many folks travelling there and thus there is not much supply and demand ... and no real competition (all hotels we have seen on the internet were similar expensive ~ 120 pounds per night without breakfast)

enjoy few pictures

after we have missed the entry to the windsor castle 2 days ago, we have decided to spent a lot of time in (the cathedral of) salisbury in order to satisfy our 'old england' cliche (london, ...).

our nicest memories of salisbury? the concert of phat bollard in the pedestrian zone as we sat there for lunch. even if i couldn't understand all of their lyrics i had the feeling that their music and their intention is about waking people up and move them from consumerism and obedience into a nice world of love, sharing and self-responsibility ... like #OccupyWallStreet two years ago => #OccupyAllStreets + #OccupyTogether and yes, the great CDs from phat bollard can bring the south england feeling to our living room in munich / germany any time we want to :-)
