BOARDMASTERS

9 - 11th August 2013


Emma and I managed to get a few days off so we headed to the North Coast to Boardmasters - Festival of surfing and music!



If you have a chance watch these videos! Such a sick weekend.





The day after we both looked as fresh as daisies (hohoho)

Money Vs Fun

So, every student will tell you, summer jobs are the worst.. Who wants to be working when the sun is out, there are festivals and parties to be going to and Waves to catch! However, with the date i'm setting of on my travels looming I realised it was essential to get a job, though like everyone else the question posed - 'Have fun or work?' 

Or both!

I managed to grab myself a pub job in Cornwall, that way I could work, sail and surf all in one! So that's the story of how I ended up staying in the attic of a pub.


This was my room for the time I was working here, luxurious I know. For most of the time I was sharing it with my best friend Emma who also got a job here, though she left before me, meaning I was all alone in this creepy attic...

L'Espanol

Alfaix, Spain.

Whilst sitting around in gloomy, rainy Wales - the only weather Wales ever has, my Mum called me up and said 'Hey, how about a last minute trip to the South of Spain?'.

And here begins the tale of a trip in Spain with my amazing Mum!



 Always time for a bit of golf! I got artistic and put my GoPro down the hole, pretty cool eh!

 Spain is famous for its markets full of fakes! 

Grenada, The Alejandra palace.

If you get a chance, you have to visit this place. Incredible.
