Beautiful Photos of Cornwall and Where to Take Them

Lifestyle, Travel, UK, Uncategorized
As the rain, cold and wind penetrate multiple layers of clothing to remind us that winter is coming, let’s hold on to the last rays of sunshine and the warm English summer. Cornwall is a rugged, beautifully framed, Picasso painting on a seaside canvas. A place like no other. The small streets, the seagulls, the smell of the sea and the cool breeze beating that summer heat, everything reminds us of a perfect summer vacation. This is probably why Gordon Ramsay bought a house and moved up there, so be prepared to see the celebrity chef casually taking a stroll on the beach. (tip: he once visited chef Paul Ainsworth at his No 6 restaurant so make sure you hang around for celebrity sightseeing). I recently visited Cornwall with some of my friends. We stayed in Penzance, a small Cornis

Here is a list of some exciting black journalists and creatives who ha

How else will we steady our nerves before take-off?

Ryanair raises hand luggage costs again

As of November 1st, Ryanair's hand luggage policy has changed for the second time this year in order to reduce delayed flights. A statement on the airline's website read: "Main benefits of this new policy will be reduced flight delays and cheaper checked bag option. Pack more liquids into a 10kg checked wheelie bag. Walk to the boarding gate hands-free." Under the new policy, non-priority boarding passengers are allowed to bring a small personal bag into the cabin free of charge. However, there will be a charge £8 to check in a small suitcase weighing up to 10 kilograms (22 pounds) or £25 for a suitcase weighing up to 20 kilograms (44 pounds).
