Since I started ‘Travel with Kat’ last September, with just a few exceptions, I’ve rarely written about the area I live in. With so many beautiful places nearby this seems a shame so here is my first post dedicated to the beautiful county I call home in the West Sussex.

I was born and still live on the south coast of England and apart from the three years I spent living in Bristol while at university, I’ve always lived close to the sea. When I was young (and the weather permitted), my sister and I spent the summer holidays on the beach. I recently took full advantage of the sunny weather and walked along the beach ending up at a lovely little café, The Lobster Pot.

The sea which is sometimes rather gray was a beautiful shade of blue and the view from the café was particularly lovely with a group of yachts sailing past.

Although I’ve visited The Lobster Pot several times before I’d never had more than a cup of coffee but seeing as it was lunchtime we decided to have a meal. Boy was it good! I had a home-made lamb and mint burger while Neill had the typically English, fish and chips – and it was one of the largest pieces of battered fish I’d ever seen. My burger was seriously tasty, served with some lovely homemade coleslaw and the chips were just how I like them – chunky, fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The prices were a little more than you would pay in some places in the area, with our meals costing just under £9 each but the quality was superb. The portions were too big for either of us to finish which does seem a shame. I have noticed some places lately offering smaller portions for a cheaper price and I do wish more restaurants would take-up this initiative.

Apart from the food being delicious the service here was also superb. All the staff, and there were plenty of them, were extremely friendly and polite plus we didn’t have to wait long either to place our order or for the food to arrive. Sadly we were way too full to try one of the many tempting homemade cakes on offer… we’ll just have to pop back again another day.

Travel Planning Resources


Travel clothes for women

Check out my guide to all my favourite travel clothes for women.

Book your hotel

Agoda is my preferred hotel search engine. I also use Airbnb ($31 discount) for booking rooms/apartments.

Rent a car

Discover Car Hire is a great site for comparing car prices to find the best deal. They search both local and international rental companies.

Book an experience

When I’m travelling solo, especially to a new city, I use Viator and Get Your Guide to book tours and excursions, in particular, food walking tours or to visit somewhere tricky to get to by public transport.

Protect yourself and your trip

Don’t forget travel insurance! Protect yourself from possible injury, theft, and many other unexpected mishaps while abroad. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 140 countries. For UK residence, Alianz Assistance offers insurance for backpackers, as well as annual multi-trip cover and single-trip cover starting from £3.36.
