My trip to Cornwall...

Just a quick little post about my recent week in Cornwall! Ended up doing so many things - some of which I thought I may never end up doing in my life, but it was all good fun! The weather held out and I got a sexy tan line... on the middle of my feet. FIT.

One day we went out to Padstow and rode what felt like a million miles (which actually was 20) on the Camel Trail. The boyfriend and I thought it would be fun to do this on a tandem bike. I'm not the most confident on a bike anyway, as it's been years since I've been on a proper bike ride, whereas Tris is a lot more confident because bikes are his thing. So, as you may have guessed, he was in front so I could just sit down and do minimal work. JOKE! I did do my share of pedalling, with a few moments of rest with my feet on the bike frame. It was bloody hard work though but I survived and would definitely do it again (with a comfier bike seat and a few trips to the gym beforehand).

We also went go karting, which was the first time I have ever done it. We went twice, although I only did it once because I felt really ill during the first visit. I didn't think I did too bad... Everyone else had an advantage, knew the track and how the go kart worked, whereas I didn't have a clue. My time was decent enough though, but I know I could do better next time ;) Although I must remember to put the visor down on the helmet to avoid massive bumblebees flying into it. I wish I was joking.

I've always wanted to go to the Eden Project, so I was very pleased that we could go for a day. I don't know why I wanted to go there... If you know me in real life, you'd know that gardens aren't my thing at all, nor are bees and wasps that you do find a lot of in gardens. But anyway, it was a great day out and a lovely place. It's an educational charity, yet it slightly worried me that a worker told me how they need £1million to build a new structure across one of the biomes to attract more visitors. Surely that million should go towards the charity to save rainforests etc? The lookout was amazing, but was only open 3 times a day, for a short amount of time. If you ever go there, make sure you find out when it's open!

I decided to buy this book whilst I was there, to aid my writing skills. It's a nice alternative to a moleskine notebook in my opinion. The paper is of great quality, almost too nice to use, and I feel like I've done something to help the project. So yay!

And last but not least... I know I said Cornwall, but really I went to the Caribbean. No but seriously, this beach was AMAZING (I wish I remembered the name but it was one owned by the National Trust, begins with a C?!) and is beyond the look of any other Cornwall beach I have set foot on. I'm not a beach person, but I would happily sunbathe on this one alllll day.
