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,

A visit to Bristol and BIMM
April 4, 2016
The other week it was an open day at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) in Bristol. Our youngest daughter, Jude is thinking about taking a music management degree there soon, so we went along to see what it was like. We left so early in the morning and the traffic was surprisingly good for a Saturday, we actually arrived in Bristol with an hour to spare. All was fine, and we killed time browsing a few shops, but somehow we ended up walking the wrong way up the road, had to backtrack and ended up getting there ten minutes late!…
which cabin bag to buy
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…
The Glastonbury Festival sign
A sneak peek at Glastonbury Festival 2017 a week before the fun starts!
June 16, 2017
This is mainly a photography post as there isn’t a great deal to say about it really! I had the opportunity to have a walk around the Glastonbury Festival site last night, so of course I took my camera with me! I also vlogged it, so when I’ve had chance to edit the footage, I’ll add that too. I’m pleased to report that the ground underfoot is very firm and the grass very green. It amazes me how much there is still to do in the next six days, but so much has happened in the last week, I’m sure they’ll manage it!….
