Hey, how the devil are you? Happy 2016, I hope you have entered it in the best way possible. I however dropped my phone on a public toilet floor, smashing it to smithereens in the process - just 10 minutes after the clock struck 12. Let's hope it's not a sign of how my 2016 will go down, but I'm more optimistic than that - I'm just pissed that my phone is covered in whatever was on the public toilet floor...*Frantically scrubs with antibacterial wipes*.
Anyway, onto today's post. A few friends and I headed down to The Eden Project just after Christmas, it was a lovely getaway - and sometimes it's just what you need to be a tourist in your own home town.
We got in the car and began our mini road trip down to the biomes. You've probably heard of The Eden Project before; but if not it's this spectacular tropical garden, filled with so much to explore, with a ton to do and see. This Winter they have been holding a Winter Festival, we managed to catch The Yule Tide Ark; a transformation of one of the biomes into a Christmassy delight. All you need to know is that there was snow, and it was pretty damn magical.
We spent the majority of the time wondering around, taking in the beautiful surroundings. It's such a unique and amazing atmosphere, you can see that Eden put so much effort into making it such a special environment to be in, whether your young or old. I especially loved the collection of hanging thoughts in the Mediterranean biome, many writing to those they have lost. It's little things like this which makes this place so lovely. We grabbed a pasty (an expensive one at that) and also a juice drink, because you know, it's detox time again.
As the night grew late, the biomes glowed marvelous colours. We strolled down to the ice rink, which was also alive with lights, accompanied by an amazing chandelier hanging above us. I was really nervous to step foot upon the rink as a few years ago I dislocated my knee - making me super anxious when I have to balance! After a few rounds, my confidence grew and I finally let go of the sides. My boyfriend however was totes showing me up, and was gliding along the ice like an absolute pro.
So, if you ever get a chance to head down to Cornwall; The Eden Project should definitely be on your lists of things to experience. I'll be back soon, that's for sure.
See you on Wednesday,
