New year, new decade and a new, new years eve experience! This year I spent my first new years eve in the UK. A few of us made our way to Whitstable, a small seaside town roughly 1 hour from London to escape the city.
I first visited Whitstable back in June of this past year. My friend Nat and I went for the day, to run the board walk, enjoy some delicious seafood (lobster!) and to do some shopping on the quaint high street. I liked it so much that I decided it might be the perfect spot to get away from the hustle and bustle in the city on new years eve.
Sean and I drove to Whitstable and were greeted by our friends (Sara, Louis, Roxane and Steph) who had been cooking up a storm all day. Delicious appetisers, lasagne, homemade apple pie – what more could you ask for? Of course…….. wine. We had a cosy airbnb with a fire place and welcoming home to hang out in. Even better, the owners had chickens in the garden so we had fresh eggs for breakfast!
On new years day, the boardwalk was arguably busier than it was that hot summer day in June. There were lots of families, dogs and kids out for a walk – despite the dreary grey weather. After a few hours of walking, some coffees and few pints later, we went for a tasty seafood lunch (lobster bisque – sensing a trend).
We could not have asked for a more chilled out new years! How did you spend your new years eve? Did you make it past midnight? Comment below.
