Hello guys! Hope you are all well! So this last Saturday my boyfriend decided we should have a little impromptu day out to Chester Zoo! Today is our 9 month anniversary (cheesy I know) so we thought that we would spend the whole weekend together since we both have work/college/volunteering we have during the week! So we decided we would commute up relativity early, we were both knackered! We spent the commute up doing word searches... yes we are 50. We got there around 10am so it was less that two hours travel and to be honest we didn't really notice how long it took!
This is us (forgive my messy hair and make-up!) sat in a lovely garden in the center of the park midway through the day. We were quite blessed that it wasn't too warm or cold but the sun stayed out all day! We stayed till around 3pm so we had a good 5 hour walk round the park!
I definitely recommend Chester Zoo particularly for those that have kids. Both myself and my boyfriend Gareth agreed that its a nice thing to do nice its not the norm and you can easily just walk around all day watching the animals which we did!
It took us around 3 hours to walk through everything as there is a lot to see. Myself and Gareth both thought that if we had a kid like a lot of the other couples did their you could easily stay there all day as there are many things for kids to do such as face painting and play areas. So if you're a couple with kids looking for a plan or even a young couple it is a good all rounder!
There are a bunch of different animals as well as fishes and bugs and even a bat house which I loved. There are even talks that happen at various areas in the park which we caught a few of walking round!
There are plenty of place to stop and eat with plenty of shops however me and the other half had brought some butties and snack stuff to stop and eat at this lovely garden area in the center which was nice!
The great thing is there are so many places to stop and relax that you can walk around all day! We stuck to just keep going left right from the beginning and we managed to see everything in the zoo! There is also a monorail system that we decided against and just walked through buts its a great idea to see an above view of the zoo.
Above you can see a picture of one of our favorite animals, bush dogs! They basically spend all day following each other in a circle! They are so cute and we were in stitches singing The Great Escape song and the rocky theme tune whilst they ran around!
So that was pretty much it for Saturday! For Sunday we spent a nice day in chilled! Pretty much watching boring day time TV and playing Cluedo whilst Gareth tried to teach me other board games like checkers and such! I can't stress how much we act like 50 year olds! It was nice to have some down time before term starts again!
So I hope you guys liked this lifestyle post! Have you been to Chester Zoo? What do you like to do with your other half? Let me know in the comments!
