Let’s start at the very beginning…

It was early 2013 when I was browsing through job listings, looking for something to move on to as I was coming to the end of an internship. Out of curiosity I had a little look at a college I knew was near to my brother, in Cornwall. Lo and behold, there was a vacancy! Which I was perfect for! Long story slightly shorter, I applied, got it, and within a month had moved in with a family friend 350 miles away from my parents, friends, and boyfriend (to be known as P). By some stroke of luck, P managed to get a job at the same place, so our long distance relationship was thankfully short-lived.

During the month that I was technically homeless and boyfriend-less, I spent a lot of time getting to know my new environs and seeking out the best spots to show P when he arrived. One of these spots was the beautiful north coast cliffs. More specifically, the stretch between Portreath-Porthtowan-St Agnes. I vividly remember one Sunday afternoon going for a walk after church (more on that at another point) and just being awestruck by the beauty of these cliffs. A phonecall to P nearly ended in tears and ‘I can’t believe we get to live here!’.

Porthtowan cliffs aka is this real life?

You can walk for miles and not get bored of that view. Well done nature, well done.
