A few days before flying out to Krakow in November, it was named the best European city break for the third consecutive year. This was part of a survey by the consumer group Which? that awarded it a score of 93% based on average airfare and hotel rate, accommodation, food and drink, cultural attractions, ease of getting around and lack of crowds. Plus, five stars for value for money.
I came home from my first experience of Glastonbury this year with the festival blues – which was why I was ecstatic to discover Dan was taking me to Boardmasters for my birthday. I had barely unpacked from one when, just over a month later, we were packing up the car to head to Cornwall. Not without some concerns, however. The weather was looking incredibly wet and windy. Not ideal for a festival next to the beach and the extreme opposite of the 30-degree heat we had experienced at Glastonbury.
