Berlin Street Art with Alternative Berlin

When we first read about the Alternative Berlin twilight tour we were very interested but because of the amount of mystery we were both reluctant and further intrigued but in the end we were both so glad that we decided to take a plunge in to the dark! The meeting place at the Alexander platz was really […]

Visit the Beautiful ZooParc de Tregomeur

There is no doubt that this is one of the most beautifully landscaped zoos I have ever been to! They take a lot of inspiration from Asian landscaping and architecture, which fits with much of their collection which features Asian animals heavily (although there are also some European, American and African animals). It uses statues […]

Wingham Wildlife Park

Self professed as being the fastest growing zoo in Kent – a statement which I think is pretty easy to justify.  You don’t need to be away from the park for long to see something new upon your next visit. Some of the locals still remember this as the old Wingham Bird Park opened in […]

Dinosaurs at the Fernbank Museum

I looked at the fernbank museum website and saw that they have the largest full articulated example of a gigantosaurus in their main gallery after you go in, as well as having some (admittedly gorgeous) statues out the front of the museum as part of a nice little fountain pool.  Naturally this left me very excited […]

Visit Cleland Wildlife Park

If you come to Adelaide and have a few days to spare, make sure that Cleland Wildlife Park makes an appearance on your itinerary.  Cleland is certainly not as large as the Adelaide Zoo, and due to the obvious difference in funding between the two zoos, this is also maybe not as “advanced” as the main city […]
