Haven’t been to Cornwall yet? You’ve been missing out

If you haven’t yet heard, everyone has been heading to Cornwall recently. I wanted to learn why this place seems to be all anyone is talking about, particularly for people who need a quick get away or want to travel with kids while keeping the stress levels low.

Almost everything I do relies on the internet in some way, and wifi is especially important since I work from home. Personally, decent broadband connections have allowed me to work from anywhere I like- from New Zealand to Thailand, to Guatemala, and Budapest, I can connect with my clients and complete work from home, coffee shops, or restaurants. And this is the same for many people, with the freelance and remote work lifestyle taking off. Much of it is thanks to businesses such as www.talktalk.co.uk/business/product/fibre, which allow us to work from anywhere.
