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!
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.
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!
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.
So, myself and my mum had the 10th August free for a long time and we knew that we would spend the day in London but doing what we was not sure? We had many plans from visiting Alexander Palace or Hampton Court Palace, but both being booked up we decided what about a musical? Looking online a few weeks before, it was hard to find two tickets that were not incredibly expensive, until we saw Mamma Mia! My mum had seen it before but she said she saw it in 2000 so 17 years ago!! And I had never seen it so we both thought yes lets go! I had watched the film at the weekend and I was singing a long and getting super excited. If you have not seen it I would 100% recommend both the film and the musical if you have the chance!!
Following our previous blog we wanted to share with you all our other photos!
After having over a month off finish university, work placements, and just generally enjoying special times in our lives we are back!! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind with lots of events taking place and unfortunately, my little hobby of blogging had to take a back seat and I admit it has taken a lot of motivation to start writing again. But here we are at the end of June (where has the time gone) and we are back with already a few adventures under our belts. I hope you have been enjoying the first of the summer sunshine and getting out there and exploring yourself!
