The Travel Book – Sunshine Adventures – Devon, United Kingdom

The summer, what a glorious time to be going on your holidays, in that hot weather, the sun, the sea, the sand! Well, whilst a lot of you are on your out of Office time of the year I thought it would be fun to spend the month of August reminiscing about the world of summer travel. Now, I tend to go on a lot of my holidays in the winter but a few summer ones stand out in my mind.

When I was a kid, there was one place that we always headed to for the summer holidays and that was Devon. As a kid I used to love going to Devon, we would always stay at a caravan park where I would love the entertainment for the kids in the evening and then we would go exploring in the daytime. One of the memories that plays out strong in my head is the beach. 

One thing that I love about Devon is the beaches, they are absolutely mind blowing and are some of the prettiest in the United Kingdom. I have a lot of fun memories of these but my strongest come from the beaches in Dawlish and Woolacombe Bay. 

One thing I used to love doing was bodyboarding, we used to have this huge board which was made of a foam like material that I would lie down on and ride the waves – it was such a fun thing to do (apart from that one time where it went over me and i couldn’t get back up under the water, that was scary). 

It was very late in the game that I realised that it was way more fun to go against the waves then actually go with them. If you went against them you would sort of go flying in the air and then drop down the other side of the wave. It was such a fun thing to do and was sort of like a rollercoaster.

When I think of childhood, I always remember that in the summer as it was an activity that was so much fun.
