ROADTRIP DAY 4-5-6.

If you haven't seen the first days of the roadtrip, go back here to see it. Otherwise let's carry on the picture diary! 

We stayed at the youth hostel close to the eden project, and went there early in the morning.

The eden project, was a big reminder on how much i really love plants! There was a lot of interesting exhibitions about mankind on earth, which really made me think how small we are!

Tea time before heading to the next destination  

After eden, we drove to Falmouth to check out a possible university for Matt (and I maybe). Also to discover yet another beautiful coastal town! 

 In the evening we drove to Penzance, to sleep in a massive tent. Apparently it is called glamping(??!) which do make sense after having slept crazily good for once! 

The morning after, we went from Penzance to St. Ives and had a stop in Land's End. The only thing to see there really, was a lot of rocks and I was a bit disappointed with the tacky tourist places they had made there. Also it wasn't the greatest weather, after having had high temperatures all the other days. But the landscape was beautiful and the facts that we were at the English mainland's westernmost point was cool to think of! 

 We finally made it to St.Ives to find that the weather here wasn't too good either. What you think of, when hearing St. Ives, are palm trees and super exotic weather, but it definitely wasn't that. We ended up falling in love with the kind people and the artistic vibe the town had to it though.

 Before heading to Okehampton, to sleep, we had the loveliest dinner at the harbour in St. Ives. Matt of course had something with bacon, me of course a vegetarian dish: red snack peppers stuffed with risotto and cornwall cheese on top.  My mum and sister had a potato salad with white fish. For dessert: a cake that combines all my favourite cakes in one, carrot, banana and pecan cake. And my sister and M got a berry pavlova.

 After the sleep in Okehampton, we drove to Cheddar, to firstly (for me) taste cheese, but also to see the beautiful Cheddar Gorge. I was so surprised to still be in England, cause it definitely didn't look like it! So rocky! 

We decided to have a picnic on the highest point of the rocks we could walk to (without having to pay for entrance). And the view was amazing!! 

And then our drive from Cheddar to Bath....

 In Bath we stayed at a really cute old B&B from the 18th hundreds. The old man who had it, was such a character and he helped us to find out what to see of Bath. We only had 24 hours there, so we ended up looking around the shopping streets to then finding a ray of the evening sun where we could eat, before going the roman baths. 

The baths were so beautiful and interesting, we thought it was only the pool we would see, but were so surprised to find out about the museum that was around it! We were literally kicked out at closing time! We then went home to the B&B and met the owner, who was going to his local pub, so we went along and stayed there till late! I had missed going to a pub again, since this actually was the first time I was in England since I moved in 2015. 

Final post of the last days of the roadtrip will be coming next time!
