When in Devon..

Devon (in the south of England) may not seem like the most glamorous place to some but to me, I don't really care where it is. When ever I go on holiday with my family I always have a good time whether it's abroad in sunny Spain or in an English seaside town even if it rains.
Just a warning: I went a little camera happy so there's quite a few photos but it's such a beautiful place, why should that matter?

This was the view from where we were staying. Who doesn't love a sea-view?

My lovely nephew making the most of the beach

Me and my step-brother took a walk along a public footpath and ended up climbing down a really steep hill for a better view at the sea. Probably wasn't the best idea as I ended up slipping a few times and got a bit muddy in the process, haha.

Luckily, the weather was quite good over the weekend and some  even got a bit sun burnt! This mini-holiday' has made me even more excited for summer and has reminded me how much I love travelling, although spending 4 1/2 hours in a car isn't ideal it was still worth it. I love Devon!

Have you been anywhere recently?

I do love to be beside the seaside!

I love holidays! The majority of holidays I have had were in Somerset in England with my mum's side of the family . The 5 or 6 times we went, 9 of us spent a week almost right next to the beach. We stopped going when I was about 7, I think, but these holidays are still some of my favourite memories.

Playing outside with my older cousin for hours, spending evenings in a nearby small theme park, riding the small train that drove around the whole resort - which easily took half an hour at least - just for the fun of it and just generally spending time with my family.
Oh - running off to play on the small climbing frame near to where we were staying....without telling anyone. Needless to say, my parents weren't happy. 

And on Friday I'm going to Dorset for 3 days with my dad and step-family. I can't wait! Even if it probably won't be very warm it still means spending time with my family by the sea.

Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?

Oh, hi spring

Even though spring officially started over a week ago, today has been the only day so far that it hasn't rained, snowed (yes, it snowed in march) or been all gloomy and horrible and the sun has been out. It may not of been very warm but the sun definitely put me in a good mood :)
