Tales of travelling – part 1

So holiday time has come and gone, and I have been far too lazy to blog in the slightest.

Cornwall was excellent as normal, however the highlights include:

  • Much Risk, and not coming last in one game!
  • 2 barbeques
  • Pubbage
  • FInally meeting Del 😉
  • Wii
  • Boat exploits
  • Tintagel, legendary birthplace of King Arthur
  • St Michael’s Mount

The best part of the whole holiday (apart from the sentimental “time with friends” rubbish) was surfing. It was excellent, and I even caught one wave, stood up and rode it all of 25m to the beach. I am definitely going to try and do it more often, either by getting down to Brighton and hiring a board and wet suit or seeing if Seaham is a possibility if I go back up North – followed by a full week next year dedicated to surfing. 2 hours is nowhere near long enough!

For the record that alcohol consumed that week include (but is not limited to):

  • 1 x 18 pack Fosters
  • 7 x red wine (bottle)
  • 1 x Sierra Tequila bottle
  • 1/4 x Tesco value vodka (aka meths)
  • 1 x 18 pack John Smiths Smooth
  • 1 x 24 pack John Smiths Bitter
  • 10+ pints Tribute Cornish Ale

Please be aware the above list is what I consumed in full! Just me. No help (except a little on the Tequila from Claire Levison!) Good, eh!

Tarra for now!!
