We decided on a small road trip to Cornwall – specifically St Ives, with a stopover in St Austell for a visit to the Eden Project which was awesome by the way! Inside the artificial biodomes are a diversity of plants that are collected from all around the world. The project took 2½ years to construct and opened to the public on 17 March 2001.
From there it was just over an hours drive onto St Ives.
Having arrived there, we realised that if you are in need of caffeine & some carbs then you are in luck. St Ives is peppered with many great coffee shops, delis selling Cornish Pasties fresh from the oven plus great bars and pubs to suit all tastes.
After sunbathing in a glorious cove (we were lucky with the weather) and a couple too many glasses of wine we walked the long way back to our hotel, admiring the beaches on the way…
