Newquay Tregurrian Watergate Bay Campsite Review

As it was the Bank Holiday weekend, we decided to enjoy the Cornish coast and go camping. We had recently been to Sennen Cove and explored the Lands End peninsula, so wanted to change it up a little and go somewhere different. We finally chose the Tregurrian Camping and Caravanning Club Site at Watergate Bay due to the awesome location and excellent facilities available. When we arrived, we were given the choice of two main areas. The staff we met…

Trekking In Sapa, Vietnam

There are two ways to get to Sapa from Hanoi: an overnight bus or an overnight train. Although the bus is cheaper and slightly quicker, it is less private. The train offered cabins for up to 4 people, with beds, bedding and snacks included. We arrived at the station and headed for our carriage on the Chapa Express – one of many companies that own carriages on the train to and from…
