I know I’m probably pushing the definition of travel somewhat with this post but sometimes it’s good to visit places on your doorstep. I think a lot of people overlook places nearby as it’s too familiar. That said it is a bit more exciting to be jetting away on a long haul flight, instead of taking a 15 minute ride on a noisy regional train!
A friend and I had decided to go on a day trip as we both had the day off. We decided to get the train to Dawlish Warren and then walk along the sea wall path to Teignmouth. As you can see it was a grey day, but unlike the last time I was here, it was warm so quite comfortable for a walk!
We stopped for lunch in Dawlish town and then found some cool street art on a wall on the climb out of Dawlish, it’s isn’t somewhere I’d expect to see art like this.
After negotiating some steep and prickly paths over the headland we were back on the sea wall path. I’d never walked along the stretch to Teignmouth before. Finally we had a quick look around the town but unfortunately didn’t have long before our train back to Exeter.
Do you have any nice places that you like to take a day trip to? Should I do more of this style of post? Let me know in the comments below
