10th June 2013 Eden Project

What a fantastic place to visit!  The cost is about £10 per adult, less for concessions but we were able to gain access for free as previously mentioned.  There is so much to do and see, with about 60% undercover so it is a perfect day out come rain or shine.

There are four main areas: three biomes, one outdoor and the others being a Rainforest and Mediterranean section.  The fourth area is The Core that provides you with an array of educational material.  Their website details are: www.edenproject.com where you can find a wealth of information about what’s on offer, far too much for me to mention here.

One of the main changes for all you dog lovers out there is that from the 15th June they allow dogs into the outside gardens of the venue, at no extra charge.

It is an amazing place where you could return again and again, and you would still learn something new – go and see it for yourself!

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
