Fowey, Cornwall - Day 2 (Part 1/3): The Eden Project

So Day 2 blog post will be in three parts as we seem to have done a lot! ^^

We started the day quite early. There were a lot of birds singing and gulls hawking and boats sailing around already that morning! ^^

I have wanted to go to the Eden Project for a very long time, well ever since Mr Games mentioned it to me a while back when he wanted to go (that's why I invited him because he hasn't been yet!).

As we didn't know our way around that much we asked the bus driver in how to get to The Eden Project. (The bus drivers in Fowey are really nice people). The driver advised us that we could get a day pass ticket for £8.50 each, and we could use that ticket on any Western Greyhound bus service. We could even go to Exeter with it, but that would take us 4 hours to get there... No chance of that ever happening... Hahahah. The day pass lasts up until midnight. So we took the 524 to St Austell. Stopped off at the cinema bus stop, crossed over and took the 527 which then took us all the way to the Eden Project. So in total, it took us almost 2 hours to get there by bus, as it was taking us around everywhere!! Bummer. I think we could have got there sooner if we traveled by car, but it was not to be!

Well the good reason why we went by bus is because we were able to obtain a discount at The Eden Project... So if you travel by bus or train make sure you show your ticket to the ticket seller, and they will reduce the price for you...

Wow!! It was amazing going there! Felt like being in space...
Miss Pinky and I were so happy. Miss Pinky never ever takes pictures. But she has started to before we go on our bigger holiday in April.

Here's my pictures...

The Canteen

So much food ^^
Once we went into the Rainforest Biome my glasses all steamed up, even Miss Pinky couldn't see through hers! It was like being in Hong Kong all over again... Oh how I love that type of heat. I felt like I was in a sauna just sweating everything off (don't worry I was not sweating!). I wondered why they were selling ice cream outside in this cold weather. Heheheheh
Steamy in the Rainforest Biome!

Rice paddy field :D

We then went into the Mediterranean Biome. Awww. It was cooler in there. Easy to take pictures too! :D

We went back outside and then explored around before we got to the next area!

The Core was the final section of the project. It isn't a greenhouse but shows more of the sciences of plants... Botanics...
Outside The Core

Giant Seed!!!! Hard to take a pic of this!

It was amazing coming to the Eden Project, and a great use of land!

When we were coming back we sat at the bus stop for a good 15-20 minutes. As we sat this pretty, pretty robin came up to us (probably wanting food), but it kept hopping about, and it let me take a picture of it! Wow. This is the first time I got close to a robin! ^_^
Cute little robin ^^
I want to go back now!!
