Blogmas Day 7: 2017 and the Future

Blogmas Day 7: 2017 and the Future

I have mixed emotions towards 2017. In some ways it has been the year in which I have achieved so much and in another way it has been the toughest. Never did I think I could cry so much, love so much, laugh so much and work so bloody hard!

I started the year as a 3rd year student at university stressing over my deadline dissertation and thinking of new year resolutions. And now, I am a masters student undertaking my absolute dream course but it has not been the easiest road and I have not let myself enjoy my first term as much as I could. But with the help and support from lots of lovely people, going into 2018 hopefully will be a positive one.

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.

Mamma Mia the Musical

Mamma Mia the Musical

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!!

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!

The Last Day in Paris

The Last Day in Paris

Once again we woke up in our beautiful hotel in Paris and were both happy and sad that we were still in this wonderful city, but in the evening we were returning home after such a lovely few days. We were packed, up, and ready to have the early afternoon exploring more of the city. Our main idea for our last day was to go into both the Louvre Museum and Musee d’Orsay.
