St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall

St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall

During this snow apocalypse (thank you to the beast from the east) we are currently having, I find myself slipping off into a daydream of summer adventures.

We all need something to look forward to and this beautiful spot in Marazion, Cornwall is the perfect place in either spring or summer. You may have seen images of this historic castle perched on top of a hill out in the ocean and people wandering up a causeway through the sea! Basically walking on water…

So, if you want a fun day out to look forward too I suggest this gem.

A Guide to Edinburgh

A Guide to Edinburgh

Hello! And welcome to the first post of 2018! I hope you all had a lovely break over Christmas and new year full of eating, drinking and a lot of lazy days. I know I did, I think I wore PJs more than I wore clothes… But it was Christmas so it was allowed.

But back to reality now and I am back at university sitting in my room wrapped up in 100 layers typing this blog post. Yipee to student accommodation!

Now I absolutely loved Edinburgh and recently coming home from there after Hogmanay,  I thought I would put together a little guide to the places I have loved. I have only been a few times so I do not have the super exclusive places but I am writing this to tell you all the little tourist spots and cool places to go if you do. As well as this, I have only been when it has been extremely cold so I cannot give tips about Fringe festival or beer gardens as that would be extremely cold! Hopefully, in the future when I visit again, of course, I will go in warmer months.

Sunny Days in St Ives

Sunny Days in St Ives

My trip to Cornwall now feels a lifetime ago now I am back at university but the sunny day in St Ives remains there in my memories! It was here I had my delicious Cornish pasty and got very red shoulders!

Discover Porthleven

Discover Porthleven

I have been to Cornwall a number of times but never before had I visited or even heard of Porthleven. I can’t believe I never had because it was so beautiful.

Porthleven is England’s most southerly port and is literally brimming with history. This quaint little port is so picturesque, with white cottages contrasting again the bright blue sea, and filled with shops and restaurants.

The Most Amazing House in Cornwall

The Most Amazing House in Cornwall

Thursday morning I was up bright eyed and bushy tailed standing on the platform at Paddington station ready to undertake my journey to Newquay, Cornwall. I had been to Cornwall previously and it is just one of the most beautiful parts of England and I urge everyone to go and visit at some point! You just would not believe you are even in England with the white sand beaches and turquoise sea!

Seeing the Sights of Lincoln

Seeing the Sights of Lincoln

My mum and dad are big big fans of the superbikes and follow them around England to watch. So, the weekend just gone was Cadwell Park, just outside of Lincoln. And with nothing for me to do, my mum suggested going with them to camp and go to Lincoln on Saturday, but this did mean enduring the motorbikes all day Sunday, which I agreed could be bearable. So, yes I said and on Friday we were off to Cadwell!

We were honestly so unlucky with the traffic on the way there and a journey which was supposed to take just over 2 hours took us almost 4!! I am rubbish at journeys but I think I did quite well and only asked ‘are we there yet’ twice! We even had thunderstorms and torrential rain throughout the journey which was making us worried about camping that night. But we arrived at a dry campsite and quickly put the tent up and had dinner before heading to bed.

A week in Albufiera, Portugal!

A week in Albufiera, Portugal!

Waking up at 4 am with my eyes half shut to get ready was a challenge, but was made easier by the thought that TODAY WE WAS GOING ON HOLIDAY! I think the most exciting part of going away is getting up at an ungodly hour to head to the airport! I hate it when you have to wait around all day, so I was more than happy to jump in our taxi at 5 am to leave for Stanstead airport!
