    Try Cornish wine.

  4. for play it forward: a great pair of walking shoes, pack very light! so you can easily manage your own suitcase;
    pack shirts that you can rinse out and hang dry overnight; bring a “true” water repellant jacket. leave your worries and cares behind and enjoy every moment. The trip is fantastic.

  5. Watch one season of Doc Martin. You will be able to enjoy Port Isaac all the more. And watch one season of Poldark so you will understand about the dangers of the tin mining industry in the early 1800’s.
