Summertime Madness

Journey to Cornwall requires around 6 hours from London Paddington. We took a morning train and stopped at a station called Carbis Bay. The house that we booked from was around 10 minutes walk. We had to pass through a small woods, and the road was kinda uphill from there. The owner had a pick-up truck that carried our small luggages and dropped it at the house later on so we didn't have to carry it our own.

We arrived, put our belongings, walked more uphill to Tesco, shopped a lot of snacks and food ingredients because we planned to cook during the 4D3N stay. There were 9 of us in total and it was always crowded, especially if 8 of them were girls with chirpy voices.

We walked to have some lunch and then to the first beach which is Carbis Bay. That wasn't the main attraction in Cornwall (St. Ives is but we'll get to that), but since we lived closer to Carbis Bay, that was the first beach destination. It was too chilly to take a dip, so we didn't. We should've known, it's England after all. However, the sky was beautiful, the weather was breezy and sunny at the same time, one of those pretty moments in the UK. I might get a lot of sunny days in Indonesia, but I have to say that the skies in the west part of the world can somehow be more captivating than in this tropical country, or at least in my island, Java (because I cannot say for Bali or Sumba or the more untouched parts of Indonesia). They are photogenic. Here? Not so much. You can see it for yourself.
