Location: Keswick, Lakes district, UK

MapCan't believe how the weeks just fly by and that I didn't do another entry for cornwall before I left. However, I have to say the day I wrote my last entry I ended up getting a severe case of food poisoning from eating fish pie at a local restaurant. After throwing up all night and feeling very sorry for myself I spent the next 4 days hardly eating a thing and taking things very gently. But I still did some more lovely walks including some more of the coastal path at Porthcurno and at Perranuthnoe, going towards Prussia Cove.

But finally I had to say goodbye to Cornwall and unfortunatley the sunshine as well, drop into see my friend Helen in Devon for a night on my way up to the Lakes District where I am now staying with my Australian friend Rose. We have booked a lovely apartment in the middle of Keswick for a week so that we can the mountains and fells of the lakes district but it is already bucketing rain. But luckily there are 32 walking shops in keswick so there's no problem finding the right clothes to go walking in the rain!

Anyway, the other exciting news is that I am going to Norway for a week to visit friends I made on the Peru trip, after I visit Italy in November. Then i think I'm coming home. I'm already getting home sick and I don't think I'm going to be up to looking for a job in London because the place is manic! No I'd rather come home to some lovely sunny summer weather and look forward to finding a new place to live and of course having to look for another contract. Anyway that's at least 6 weeks off at this point.......
