Hello!!! I thought I’d write my first post back about some of the things I got up to this summer!!
Although I spent a lot of my time working to save for University, I’m also lucky enough to have my two lovely grandparents living in Penzance, Cornwall. I spent a few weeks there learning to surf, going for big walks, and lying on the beach!! I’ve grown up visiting Cornwall, being on the beaches covered in sand and getting thrown around by the waves, it is one of my favourite places on earth. If you haven’t been I hope this post makes you want to go because I’d recommend going here to anyone. Its my little escape!
My first two weeks away, me and my boyfriend Jamie decided to do a surfing course for 4 days with Smart Surf School, on Sennen Beach! I surfed a bit in Bali and absolutely loved it, so I wanted to learn some more skills and try and become a little better.
Sennen is one of the most beautiful beaches, and Me and Jamie were so so excited. We went down early on our first day and couldn’t wait to get in the water even if it was a little cold at first (once your in and in your wetsuit and focusing on learning, you don’t even notice). Smart Surf school were amazing too, Sam Smart and his Brother Seb Smart are great surfers and teachers, who have a wonderful team, all of whom are experienced surfers and life guards. They taught us so many techniques and we had such a laugh with them. The great thing was they teach in small groups and believe the best way to learn is getting out and doing it! After about 20 minutes of warming up and getting to know the boards, we were in the water testing out our steering and paddling techniques, and by day two we were already standing up! Me and Jamie absolutely loved it, although a small tip, remember not to put suncream on your forehead, as Jamie went blind for a good five minutes in the water…
If you ever get the chance to go to Cornwall and wanna try surfing lessons go check out Smart Surfs Website they are such a cool bunch of people and I can’t wait to go back and have more lessons with them! http://www.sennensurfschool.com

There are so many beautiful places to visit in Cornwall, I have so many favourite beaches there and I always try and visit them every time I go down. My Grandparents also live very near to the little habour called Mousehole, which is a small fishing village and it’s so so lovely. It’s a stunning place to walk through and sit and look out from the habour, or even spend an evening in the lovely restaurants. I highly recommend ‘2 Fore Street’ restaurant, their food is incredible…I can’t stop thinking about it.
I could talk about how much I love Cornwall forever but I think I’ll save some of it for another post soon and tell you all about the different beaches you can visit, otherwise this post may go on and on… and for now I’ll just show you a few more photos of the beautiful places I went in Cornwall during summer…
