The Beauty Of Cornwall

Best Destinations, Stories and Travel Info - Amanda - October 24, 2016

Cornwall sits at the far south-west of the UK. It is a land of rocky coastlines, 300+ beautiful beaches, artists, and myths and legends. And “Poldark”.

lands_end_cornwall_englandThe first thing to say about Cornwall is that it is extremely popular with British people as well as foreign visitors, and gets incredibly busy in the summer. If you have to drive around the area during the school holidays and you want to enjoy the scenery, then you really need to get out before breakfast. Most of the roads are narrow and get clogged with traffic pretty quickly, so you want to do your driving at off-peak times if at all possible.

Cornwall is a beautiful place. Both the north and south coasts have many popular beaches and picturesque fishing villages, like Boscastle, Port Isaac, and Mevagissey. And there’s also Mousehole, once described by the writer Dylan Thomas as “quite the loveliest village in England”.

The combination of landscape, the sea, and the light has drawn writers and artists to Cornwall over many years. St Ives has a well-established School Of Painting, as well as the fairly recent arrival of a branch of the renowned Tate Gallery. Not far away, the village of Newlyn, became important in the British Impressionist movement during the 1880s.

If you prefer more theatrical culture, then the spectacular Minack Theatre, just a few miles from Land’s End, is well worth a visit. You can pay a small fee just to look around this amazing open-air venue, or see one of the shows that run during the season from May to September. If the weather holds up, it can be quite an experience watching a quality production while perched on the edge of a sea cliff.

Speaking of Land’s End – it is a tourist hotspot, and does get very busy during the summer, but there are plenty of things to do. Many people go there to get a photo of themselves next to the signpost which was erected in the 1950s. It’s also a great area for hikers and birdwatchers, and there are shops for those who prefer a bit of retail therapy. The Land’s End Landmark even includes a cinema, and an interactive exhibition showing more about the history of the area. There is also a small airfield, from where you can fly to the Scilly Isles, which would make a great day trip.

We can’t mention Cornwall without talking more about the sea, and the surfing. Despite the cold water, people surf here all year round, and many of Cornwall’s beaches provide good surfing conditions. The best beaches are on the north coast, which provides more consistent surf – and the most popular of these is Fistral, in Newquay.

If you’re travelling to Cornwall just for the surfing, it is possible to get flight connections from London to Newquay’s small airport, and there are a few connections to nearby European destinations too. Otherwise, the closest international airports are Bristol and Cardiff, from where you can get public transport or hire a car to Newquay or any of the many lovely spots in Cornwall. Cornwall has many accommodation options from B&B to high end resorts like Trenython Manor – all of which offer exceptional deals if you do your research.

Stories and Travel Info - Amanda - July 8, 2016

Consider yourself lucky if you own a boat. There are many people who are not fortunate enough to own this type of machine. However, owning a boat is a very big responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Boat owners need to educate themselves about many different things in order to ensure the safety of themselves and anyone else they bring on the water with them. Failure to be an expert in these matters could lead to a tragedy on the water that could have been prevented. Here are some of the areas that boat owners should be educated about.

1. Cleaning the boat

The bottom of the boat will need to be cleaned depending on how much it is used and how long the hull is submerged in the water. You cannot allow barnacles to grow on the side of the boat. These will eventually turn into huge problems for you. Therefore, you will need to learn the various techniques of cleaning your boat. You will also need to find out the best chemicals and equipment to use for this task.

2. Repairing the boat

You do not need to become a master boat mechanic.

You should also find a good place to buy replacement parts for boats. You want to make sure that you are only using the best quality parts to repair your boat.

3. Safety

A boater safety class is required in some states in order for a person to get his or her boater’s license. However, you should still take a safety class even if you live in an area where it is not required. Common sense is also a big part of safety while you are boating. For example, you should always bring enough life jackets for all of the people on the boat. You should also bring plenty of food and water so you will be able to survive if you are stranded on the water for several days. Safety should always be your top priority when you are boating.

A Traveller’s Guide to Reno

Best Destinations, Stories and Travel Info - Amanda - June 2, 2016

The state of Nevada is now known as the gambling capital of the world, and Reno is where it all started (legally) in the 1920s. The bright neon lights of Reno’s many casinos have beckoned keen gamers for many decades, with the Eldorado being one of the most popular places for guests to challenge Ol’ Lady Luck.

Yet there is a lot more to see and do in Reno than visit its famous gaming houses. Here’s our guide to The Biggest Little City…

Getting to Reno

A traveller’s guide to Reno

If you want to come to Reno via Las Vegas don’t be fooled by the fact that they’re both known for their casinos and neon lights, as well as the fact they’re both in Nevada. In fact, Reno is about an eight-hour drive away!

If you’re travelling from Las Vegas in a car, take the US-95 and drive north to Fallon, then go west on the US-50 to Fernley, and keep going west on I-80 West until you reach Reno. If like the desert, then you may find the long drive fun. If you’re a passenger and you have no interest in landscapes, then you can always play Red Flush casino games to win some extra spending money and to get yourself ready for the famous felt-green tables.

If you want to travel by plane, then you’re in luck as most major airlines serve Reno-Tahoe International Airport. You will find non-stop flights to and from Chicago, Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Portland and Seattle.

For the lowest fares, we recommend avoiding flights into Reno on Friday, and out of the city on Sunday.

To get directly to and from the airport, you have a choice of rental cars, taxis, buses and more. All of these ably serve most gambling, shopping, and dining needs.

Things to do in Reno

Besides casinos, there are many things to keep you busy and happy during your stay in Reno. For a touch of culture and history, there’s the Nevada Museum of Art. The current building opened in 2003 and was designed by Will Bruder Architects; a company renowned for their modern ideas and beautiful buildings.

If you’d like a nice stroll, then Idlewild Park is the place to go. While there, you can take in Reno’s Municipal Park Garden, a driving range, and various walking trails. For the kids, there’s a seasonal adventure playground and a skate park.

Casinos and restaurants

The most popular casinos include the Atlantis, Eldorado, and the Silver Legacy and these have great reviews on TripAdvisor. The tropical-themed Atlantis offers a wide range of dining options. These include a great value (only $13!), a steakhouse, and a pizza restaurant, equipped with a real Italian pizza oven.

Peg’s Glorified Ham n Eggs also comes highly recommended by both locals and visitors, as does Pirate’s Pizza.
