Adventures in a VW bus part 4: Intrepid explorer in the Lost Gardens of Heligan


Last post of our Cornwall holiday in a vintage VW camper van… another cold but bright day, this time spent exploring acres of beautiful gardens rediscovered and restored after 90 years of neglect. As with the rest our holiday I was dressed for chilly weather, loads of walking and a sense of adventure!







For some reason I felt as if I was dressed as if I was in a film like Twister or Dante’s Peak – like I should have some sort of scientific equipment with me to measure the viscosity or solar activity of some strange, gloopy substance (can you tell I’m not a scientist). These gardens were so beautiful, and I photographed the most stylishly dressed scarecrow I think I’ve ever seen. As the day went on it did warm up a fair bit so I was able to shed the parka (but not the scarf or hat)… we had our final photo taken with Barbarossa before our last night and returning him to the hire place. We said that if we had the space and the money we would absolutely buy a VW camper van – it was just so much fun and we’d definitely rent one again.

Hope you all liked the holiday photos – normal service resumes from Saturday. Happy Thursday everyone!

    That's one sharply dressed scarecrow! I've enjoyed seeing your vacation outfits – it's nice to see casual outfits that still look fantastic.

    great pictures as always…you look so cool, the knee high boots and jacket are the highlights of your outfit. Even the scarecrow looks so chic…

    What a great look! I love how you make the jacket so chic, yet casual, and pair it with a striped scarf. Once again, I'm jealous of your adventures 🙂
