If you are  travelling somewhere new it always pays to take a moment to listen to local advice for local events and tips on places to go.

Whilst we were checking in at the reception of the Seaview International Camp site, we found out about something special taking place that weekend in nearby Falmouth.

We had a few vague plans for things to do this weekend but this idea quickly topped them all and so the next day we set out down the Cornish coast… and not too far away ran smack bang into a long traffic jam.

Little winding roads are delightful in theory: when they are empty, but when every man and his dog wants to join you down them, they don’t make the easiest of driving, especially in a massive camper.

(Yes… I’m fully away that vehicles like ours only added to the problem).

It looks like half of the country is heading to the same place we are, so it’s just as well (a) we are not in a desperate hurry and (b) we have a toilet on board the camper (yet another occasion when standing still in traffic was at last practical in one respect). All of this took place in the summer of 2013 and we were very lucky to be in Falmouth during a special weekend… This post details our journey there, I love how one camp-site place decorates it’s road sign with a little pink camper bus, and as usual I’m captivated by the very English architecture along the way…
