Take Bake Tuesday – Fraser Island

A few years ago when I was travelling in Australia I went one of their trips to Fraser Island. I went on my own and it was one of the last trips that I did before coming back to the UK. This was the first trip that I had done in Australia on my own and I was quite nervous because I did have to travel to a different part of Australia for the trip. Travelling around Australia is super easy though as there are loads of coach companies you can use.
The trip to Fraser island consisted of camping on the island with a group of people and driving around to different areas of the island using 4×4’s. I had seen pictures of the island and it looked amazing so I knew it was something I needed to do before I returned home. As I had gone on this trip on my own I was super nervous because I didn’t know anyone but I soon realised there was a lot of people in the same situation as me. We were split into groups of 8 and these were the people who you would be camping with and those who you would share the car with.
We went to the local supermarkets before we left to stock up of food for the next few days and then we set off to find Fraser island. We drove though the forests and along the beach. Our car did at one point get stuck in the sand but luckily we were able to get out. We visited Lake McKenzie, the champagne pools, Lake Wabby and Eli Creek. We also visited Indian Head where the views were amazing and we also stopped by the Maheno Shipwreck. We had BBQ’s on an evening and enjoyed watching the sun set and rise on the beach.
This was a once in a lifetime trip and It was truly an amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Hobbit Huts in Cornwall

I discovered the coolest hobbit huts in Cornwall last year when my parents got me the weekend break for Christmas. They know that compared to my siblings I am much more attracted to anything a bit different and would prefer to stay in the huts to a posh hotel. I was so excited to go that I booked it straight away and I probably should have waited a little longer because it was freezing but it was still so fun.
I was not disappointed as the surrounding areas was so idyllic and picturesque. When I pulled up I could see these really cute little hobbit huts and they were so much more than the pictures that I had previously seen. They were dark green miniature houses; they each had individual out door areas for BBQ’s and there was shared bathroom facilities. Inside the huts there was a pull out sofa that made a double bed, a table and chairs and storage space. There was little lights and even curtains to give the huts a homely feel.
I walked around the site and had a look at the other huts and each one was slightly different. They also had hobbit holes and these were little places to stay that were fixed into walls and they looked really cosy. The site that they are on is in the middle of a forested area and there are quite a few little walking areas around the site. Not fair down the road there was a really pretty river and a bigger walking area which we walked around pretty much every day. There was also a cosy pub not too far down the road.
I love Cornwall because it so calm and relaxing there and I always have a good time. I enjoy wondering around the small towns and going to the beach. I even went crabbing…. We only found one crab but it just reminded me of going crabbing with my dad when I was younger.
Of course I ensured that I had fish and chips on the beach! If you go to the beach in the UK and don’t have chips you are doing it wrong! 🙂
I really enjoyed staying in the hobbit hut as it was so different to any other places I had stayed. I would definitely go back and again and would like to take my family with me.
