Cornwall, some have heard of this hidden gem in the South West of England, but most of the people don’t. This lovely part of the UK is where my latest journey led me. Not because I am a big fan of the Rosamunde Pilcher novels but because a good friend of mine moved there. Cornwall: pure nature, lovely villages, breathtaking edgy cliffs, windy beach walks, tasty pasty’s (Cornish Empanadas). I could go on forever. I discovered many lovely places where I would like to return someday. It was the total opposite of my Dubai holidays in autumn 2018 and both were amazing journeys.
