Many people drive every day, several times a day. It has become almost more common than walking as a means to get about, and some people will even drive one block rather than walk it (and of course, some people have conditions that prevent their walking very far). But driving is actually quite a dangerous pastime: controlling a ton or so of heavy metal and chemicals, at fairly high speeds – and doing so alongside hundreds of other people! But it is possible to practice road safety as a driver that can reduce your risk of accident or injury.Continue reading “Driving tips to stay safe on the roads”
From ages 11 to 15, I went on a family holiday to Argeles-sur-Mer in the south of France each year. I went five times in total and have many memories from these holidays, not least because each trip ended up in some sort of disaster, yet we kept going back each year!Continue reading “Fun things to do in Argeles-sur-Mer, south France”

We recently spent two nights in an Airbnb in Devon to visit Woolacombe at my husband’s request for his birthday. Being a late booking, I couldn’t find accommodation left in Woolacombe, so we stayed in nearby Ilfracombe instead. With just two days to our visit in north Devon, we spent the first day at Woolacombe and the second whole day at Ilfracombe. Read on to see what we thought of Ilfracombe and our family travel photos.Continue reading “Family day out in Ilfracombe, north Devon”
We recently went to Woolacombe Beach in Devon for the first time. On returning from our recent trip exploring the likes of Daymer Bay and Crantock Beach for a week in Cornwall, we stopped for two nights in Ilfracombe Devon.
We were otherwise driving back on Ben’s birthday for three and a half hours, so when planning our holiday, I asked if he wanted to stop anywhere halfway home. Having not been to Woolacombe before, he suggested stopping here for a night or so.
There was no accommodation available in Woolacombe, but nearby Ilfracombe had an Airbnb cottage which was perfect. Another place we hadn’t been to yet in Devon and could also explore.

Ooh, I’ve found another favourite beach in Cornwall – Crantock Beach!
A beautiful vast beach along the River Gannel and its estuary out to sea. It’s a huge sandy beach which is ginormous when it’s low tide. At high tide the beach separates into two with tall, steep sand dunes taking over and looking so impressive.
We spent a day exploring Crantock Beach with the children and also viewing it from Pentire Headland in the late afternoon.
Crantock beach is managed by National Trust and we were surprised to find a parking space at 10am in the summer holidays and even more surprised at how quiet the beach was.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the central Newquay beaches then Crantock is a must.
Here are my photos for the day exploring Crantock Beach and Pentire Headland.Continue reading “Exploring Crantock Beach and Pentire Headland in Newquay, Cornwall”
I love walking the coastal paths. You get to see the beaches from a different view and whenever we’re in Cornwall, I’m always stunned by how clear, blue and turquoise the seas actually are.
From the beach you simply can’t always tell how incredible the water truly is. Definitely take a walk up the coastal paths when you see them to appreciate the full beauty of the Cornish sea and the stunning coastal views.
Today I walked a short coastal path from Daymer Beach to Brea Beach in Cornwall. Including walking across Daymer beach from their carpark, the walk there and back was around 3km. If you don’t have a lot of things to carry then it was much quieter at Brea Beach and not far at all.Continue reading “Daymer Beach to Brea Beach: coastal path walk with stunning views!”
