Have fun looking around 🙂

Padstow

A small fishing village in North Cornwall. I have been to Cornwall on holiday about 16 times and I always visit a town called Padstow while I’m there.

This is such a nice village, I would definitely recommend a visit whilst you’re on holiday in Cornwall. It’s one of those places that have a really strange mix of people. There are the rich posh people who are there for that fish restaurant run by that famous TV chef guy (typically can’t remember his name now); the middle/upper class families visiting, and a bunch of hippies plaiting people’s hair by the side of the harbour!

It also seems to be an unusual place to find the best clothes ever! If I didn’t want to go to Newquay because it was too crowded with chavvy tourists, I would choose Padstow to go shopping rather than Truro. Up the little narrow streets there are several shops full of cool surfy clothes, and if you go up a small hill bit there’s a group of four shops where there’s a couple of hippy shops too. There are also several of the kind of shops you expect of a seaside town that are for families on holiday that are full of souvinears and nick-nacks and surprisingly these are incredibly cheap. If you want to kit up with the full sea-side works – fishing nets, body boards, blow-up dolphins and rubber rings, and buckets and spades etc. this is the cheapest place in the whole of Cornwall I am sure!! We’ve often come away from Padstow with several bags. There’s also a gorgeous fudge shop which I must find the name of to tell you.

UK,

Finding the perfect carry-on luggage. 6 Things to look out for!
July 22, 2018
Chris and I have been doing a fair bit of traveling lately, and both of us have been on the lookout for the perfect luggage. While your main suitcase, is of-course important, I think it’s the carry-on that needs to function at its best in order to fit your needs. This is particularly so if you’re traveling with only the cabin bag and not checking anything into the hold at all. I think I’ve found the perfect one, and I just thought I’d tell you about it…

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….
3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.
