Brīvdienas Kornvolā/ Holidays in Cornwall

DSC_4284aZiemassvētki ir vienīgais laiks gadā, kad mēs visi varam baudīt kopējas brīvdienas, īpaši neatprasoties no skolas vai bērnudārza un īpaši nesarežģijot dzīvi darba devējiem. Protams, ja paveicas, vēl varam arī izbrīvēt vienu kopēju nedēļu augustā, bet tomēr Ziemassvētku laiks ir jau laicīgi paredzams un plānojams.

Šī gada brīvdienu ideja tapa no savienojuma: nelidot + apskatīt Ēdenes projektu/Eden project. Līdz ar to izlēmām palikt Anglijā un visas apskates vietas izvēlēties Kornvolā jeb Cornwall, kas ir viens no populārākajiem brīvdienu reģioniem Anglijā. Šeit ir daudz vēsturisku apskates objektu, daudz izklaižu iespēju, jūra un gan smilšaina, gan klinšaina piekraste, maigāks klimats, arī netrūkst restorānu, kafejnīcu, viesnīcu, moteļu, B&B, kempinga mājiņu utt. Patiesi ļoti intensīvs reģions, kuru iepazīt vienā ciemošānās reizē pagrūti.

Šoreiz mūsu plānotais maršruts bija:

Exeter- St. Austell (Eden project)TruroSt. MawesSt.IvesThe Minack Theatre- Land’s End. Karti var apskatīt šeit.

Christmas is the only time of the year when we can all enjoy a holidays together not to hold boys out of school/nursery or to book special time off work.  If we are lucky, we also can make one week in August, but time between Christmas and New Year we can plan for sure. Therefore similar as last year we went to Normandy, France, this year we planed to look around Cornwall, England. Our plan to visit Cornwall was born from two ideas: flights free holidays + to see Eden Project. That is how we got our trip destination, Eden Project is near St Austell in Cornwall and we can travel on our car. If we were ready for 6 hour trip, then why don’t discover all area as much as possible in 5 days. It is not a secret that Cornwall is one of the most popular holiday destinations in England. There are many historical places, plenty of entertainment option, the sea and the sandy and rocky coastline, milder climate, there are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, motels, B & B, guest houses and so on. Truly a very intense region for 5 day trip, but anyway we were ready to meet it. 

Our planed road in Cornwall was: Exeter- St. Austell (Eden project)TruroSt. MawesSt.Ives- The Minack Theatre- Land’s End. You can see the map here.

Exeter

2014-12-26 15.18.26aGodīgi sakot, pirmā diena mums vairāk pagāja ceļā uz pirmo viesnīcu Exeter. Jā, mums bija dažas stundas pirms tumsas pa lietu apskatīt pilsētu, bet tā īsti apmeklējām tikai Exeter Cathedral, kura ir viena no lielākajām, gotiskajām katedrālēm Anglijā un bagāta ar krāšņām logu vitrāžām un majestātiskām ērģelēm.

 Honestly, the first day we just travelled and stopped and travelled again. When we reached our hotel in Exeter there were some hours before dark to see the city, but we only visited Exeter Cathedral, which is one of the great cathedrals of England and a beautiful example of Gothic churches with stained glass windows and majestic organ inside.
