Joe and I just got home from a couple of days in Cornwall. We had originally booked a few days off of work for Joe's birthday (I'm married to a 31 year old, how weird! haha), but later decided to make it a whole week and go away for some of it. We spent a few days in Wales last year around the same time, so wanted to visit somewhere different this time. We settled on driving as far south as we could and hope for the best weather wise so we ended up in beautiful Cornwall. We didn't know what to expect as neither of us had been there before, but everyone we talked to kept telling us how beautiful it was and we obviously saw all the gorgeous pictures on Google and TripAdvisor...
We stayed at a hotel in a town called Camborne. Everybody aims for St Ives when visiting Cornwall, but we were warned by a local friend about how expensive it can be so I think we made the right choice! Having a car makes everything much easier since everything is so close together! Our hotel was only a 20 minutes drive from St Ives and it was half the price of some of the places we found there.
St Ives really is a must if you're visiting Cornwall. It's very charming and there are loads to do and see. But the place we really fell for was Carbis Bay. It was a bit of a challenge to find the best way to get down to Carbis Bay Beach, but once you get there, it really is worth all the trouble! The beach is not too busy and the sea is ever so calm. The water was cold (we are in England, after all!), but the weather was so warm, it was actually really refreshing.
I've been such a busy bee with work and it can get really stressful at time, so it's nice to take a break and think about something else in a while. I hate being the type of person who brings work home and can never quite stop thinking about all the things I need to do the next day. I came home feeling brand new. I didn't realize how much I needed this break. Maybe I should take up meditation? Or maybe just the occasional nap might do the trick?
I've got lots of brand new ideas for where I want to take the blog, new content and a new direction. I'm very excited to share everything with you guys in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned. x
