A very overdue visit to the Eden Project

I think it has been almost 10 years since I visited the Eden Project, and a lot has changed since I was last there. One of the biggest changes was the enormous zip wire that goes across the entire site. Of course, I had to try that out, and it was a truly amazing ride, I can thoroughly recommend it.

Of course, the biomes are really impressive too. It’s very easy though to walk through them and not stop to take in the huge variety species inside. It’s really worth spending the time to look, read and think about the work that the Eden Project is doing and just how amazing it is, especially when you think it was just a clay mining pit in the not too distant past.

I’m glad to have gone again and spent the day there, it was a great day out, and if you’ve never been I’d thoroughly recommend it.

Going Ape

Over the summer I spent a great day at a Go Ape site at Bedgebury. When you first take a look at a course like this it can look daunting, but when you’re up in the trees it is great fun, and we had perfect weather for the day.

Climbing trees is a wonderful activity except in the rain of course, but even then it can be fun. That’s probably a post for another day. It is probably good exercise too, but that’s not why I enjoy it. I just love getting off the ground and being up in the trees. There’s nothing quite like it.

Spending a few hours at Go Ape is just pure fun and I’d recommend it to anyone so long as you’re not afriad of heights that is!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about then check out the Go Ape web site and see if it takes your fancy.
