Last weekend, Stu and I travelled down to Cornwall to visit some friends we travelled around Australia and Bali with. We stayed at their house near Penzance but explored quite a bit of the surrounding area.
On the Friday night we ate at The Godolphin Arms in Marazion which overlooks the famous St Michael’s Mount. The food was amazing but I ate way too much and drank too much cider so left with the biggest food baby Cornwall has ever seen. Yay!
Saturday was spent riding quad bikes on our friend’s farm, walking to St Michael’s Mount, relaxing on the beach and visiting Lands End. I went to Lands End when I was younger and remember the sign being quite big so I had to laugh when I realised just how small it is.
Stu’s family have a ‘Cornish Pasty club’ which to join you have to eat a large pasty in one sitting every time you visit Cornwall. It was a struggle and a half but I’m now a official member! This brought on another food baby unfortunately so I was glad of the amount of walking we did this weekend.
On Saturday night we had dinner in St Ives at The Firehouse restaurant. I had the seabass risotto which was delicious, especially when washed down with lots of wine and cocktails!
We were treated to a night out in Penzance afterwards which despite us being warned not to expect much, was actually quite good! We went to a few different bars and finished up in The Sound nightclub.
We woke up on Sunday expecting to feel horrific but we were all okay and felt better again after breakfast and then a coastal walk by Prussia Cove. Thank you James for driving us all over Cornwall, we had a great time! It was fantastic seeing friends from travelling again, reminiscing about Australia and Bali and talking about where we want to go next.
