Back in September, Alex, Casper and I spent a week in Cornwall on a hiking trip with the in-laws. The trip was really fun and Cornwall was, as expected, incredibly beautiful. We stayed at a little boutique dog friendly hotel in Penzance called Artist Residence. The room included a little dog bed and they even provided Casper with some yummy dog treats! I shared a few photos and videos of the trip on my instagram. However, I thought that I would mark this trip by sharing a few of the highlights on my blog.

One of my guilty pleasures when visiting smaller towns is to go to second hand book shops. I came back from Penzance with a much heavier bag and 5 new books to add to my ever growing collection. One of my greatest finds was the below book by Alfred Russell Wallace on the Amazon and Rio Negro from 1895, which I unfortunately couldn’t bring myself to buy because it was simply too expensive. However, the Brazilian in me couldn’t possibly keep from sharing this special moment.
