For my birthday this year, my boyfriend and I visited Paradise Wildlife Park for the afternoon. Although somewhere I’ve been more times than I could count, I always enjoy going to Paradise because for me, it’s a form of nostalgia. It’s a place my parents used to take me when was I very little and although obviously it’s been updated a lot over the years, the majority of the format of the park is the same. It’s cute and quaint and a lovely day out – so although it wasn’t an extravagant birthday (just a zoo and a Dominos!) I really enjoyed it and wanted to share some photos and a little bit about the park with you today!
If you’re my Twitter friend, you may have noticed that I like Formula 1… A little bit. Okay, a lot. I recently wrote about my first ever Formula 1 experience at the Silverstone mid-season test in August and this month the Formula 1 experiences continued when I made my first ever visit to the Donington Park Formula 1 museum in Derby. This was a belated birthday present from my parents, who kindly paid for my boyfriend and I to stay overnight near the museum and obviously visit the museum itself. I would be super cliché and say I didn’t know what to expect but of course I did know what to expect… Cars. A lot of them.
Everyone has a handful of places that brings up a whole world of nostalgia for them. One of mine is Colchester Zoo – I could not count the amount of times I’ve been here and have been going here since I was little. I absolutely love the place; it’s got such a gorgeous atmosphere and whatever the weather, you can quite comfortably wander around for the entire day. I visited here a few weeks ago, for the billionth time and I wanted to write a little blog post about the day and share some of the photos I took. Come and join me at Colchester Zoo!
