Our Summer Adventure

Tonight we are off on our summer adventure (it also coincides with the Jubilee weekend) - we will be travelling around Cornwall and visiting Newquay, St Ives, Land’s End, Penzance, Falmouth, Mevagissey, Polperro, Plymouth and Padstow along the way- I simply can't wait!



We’ve hired a VW campervan and will be sleeping, eating, and travelling around in glorious retro style. It’s a shared dream of ours to own our very own Volkswagen one day, so this should be a taster of things to come.



Although our method of transport might be vintage, it’s hard to fully go back in time, but I sure have tried my best. How cool is this Jubilee special edition Colgate toothpaste paying homage to their old packaging. I got mine from Sainsbury’s for £1.

See you soon!

  7. I love that toothpaste packaging - I'd totally be tempted to keep that. Driving around in a VW has always been a dream of mine and what better way then taking it around the coast! Have a lovey trip and I hope you get some decent British weather.

  10. I absolutely love all of those places you visited - Polperro is adorable, I don't know if you will have time, but I really reccomend the walk from Polperro to Looe (I did it from Looe to Polperro), it takes a while but both places are beautiful and it was one of the most scenic walks of my life! You can also get a boat back from Looe if you're worn out :)
