Our Adventures at Edinburgh Zoo🐒🐧🐼🐯

Sorry readers we have been so busy but have some great experiences to share with you!

Well one of us celebrated their birthday the other weekend so the other surprised them to a trip to Edinburgh zoo! One place we both haven’t visited before so we would love to tell you all about our adventures at the zoo.

Ever been to Edinburgh Zoo before? It is definitely worth a visit!

As the zoo is up a hill we decided to rush to the top and work our way down. This was a good idea because everyone started at the bottom by the entrance so we got to see the animals on our own. I would recommend doing this and if you need mobility assistance that’s also available!

The layout of the zoo is at the back there are the Big Cats, in the middle are Birds and Monkeys. To the left are more Monkeys, Giant Pandas and Penguins and at the front by the entrance are a variety from Pelicans to Meerkats. Above is the full map.

At the top of the map (top of the hill) there is a viewing point which shows some amazing views of Edinburgh. If you have a gorgeous clear day like us you can capture some fantastic photographs!

Our favourite animal to see was the Giant Pandas but they do spend most the day inside sleeping, we would in the cold February weather!

This cheeky guy below soon woke up when there was food placed in his room! Edinburgh zoo has a wide variety of Monkeys and it’s the animal we saw the most of.

Every day they run a Penguin parade at 14:15 if the Penguins are willing to participate. Unfortunately they all seemed too lazy and sunbathing to walk the parade the day we went.

Edinburgh zoo does have a wide range of animals but maybe only 1 or 2 of them and we did find many of the areas empty and no animals home. Also, the animal walkthrough which is where you can walk through the home of the breed with them (but always stick to the paths) which many of the animals were inside so we went through the Monkeys, Wallaby’s and the Lemur’s. Out of the 3 only the Wallaby’s were outside. Not sure if this was down to the fact we went in the cold February.

Other than this little bit of disappointment above we did really enjoy the day-trip and would visit again, in the summer next time! The weather was great for us which topped it off.

Thank you for reading and we would love to hear from you guys if you have visited before and hear your reviews and see your photographs!

From beginners to professionals they have the products for all.

They sell meal replacements, complete recovery lean protein, gym clothing and even the protein shaker and gym bags – everything all in one place.

Goddess Protein

We managed to get our hands on some meal replacements and complete recovery lean protein which have worked wonders for our diet and fitness routine.

Meal Replacement Product:

Meal replacements are a good way to help with a healthy weight loss programme to cut out them rubbish snacks during the day! Even using one serving will last you a few hours. You can choose from 4 flavours but we highly recommend the Chocolate Brownie.

One serving (30g) only contains:

  • 104 calories
  • 12.6g protein
  • 2.8g sugars
  • 10.8g carbs
  • 1.2g fat
  • 0.36g saturates

These are perfect for a snack replacement and helps burn fat faster.

We had the Chocolate Brownie meal replacement on the evening after work which gave us the energy for the rest of the evening without wanting another snack! We added 250ml of water but you can add between 200-250ml of water or even milk for a thicker texture. Add all to the Goddess shaker and shake well.

If you are starting out or wanting to try this product you can purchase 30g sachets for an amazing £1.99 to try first and upgrade to a larger box of 1kg after. Check it out here.

Complete Recovery Protein Product:

The Complete Recovery Lean Protein is a dream for a speedy recovery. This helps you train for longer and more frequently as your body recovers quicker. Taking this straight after your workout (or up to an hour) gives you a higher chance of helping to tone your muscles faster.

We had this 30 minutes after our gym session to help repair our muscles and also this will help tone the muscles after the workout. Taking this straight after gives your body a quick recovery ready for the next day to go again just as strong. We had the Banana Marshmallow flavour recommended by Goddess Nutrition themselves, which included in our 30g sachet:

  • 110 calories
  • 23g protein
  • 4.5g carbs
  • 1g sugars
  • 0.3g fat
  • 0.1g saturates

This flavour was delicious and nutritious giving your body a successful recovery and able to achieve them fitness goals quicker. Looking at trying this product you can purchase a 30g sachet here for only £1.99 before buying the larger box.

I would definitely recommend purchasing products from Goddess Nutrition if you are looking for a successful products to help achieve them fitness goals. We are looking forward to trying new flavours and show our progress.

Roseberry Topping Sunrise ☀️

If you are a morning person or looking for a free, energetic activity resulting in a beautiful view then this is something for you!

Overview of Roseberry Topping and Surroundings:

Roseberry Topping is one of the natural beauties of Teesside. Standing at 1049 ft high, so not the biggest hill, but provides a lovely view. Climbing this hill is one of the many different adventures that you can take in this area, others include:

  • Visiting Captain Cook’s Monument
  • Explore the Bluebell woods
  • Walk through the heather moorland
  • Discover the long abandoned quarry

If you are feeling really adventurous you can take a longer trip down to the nearest town of Great Ayton – there are plenty of coffee shops to refuel at!

Our Experience:

After checking the sunrise time the night before – we arrived at the bottom of the hill at 6am in the pitch black, which was a struggle on a Saturday morning! Taking us 30 minutes to climb at a steady pace, with plenty of food breaks, we eventually reached the top. Whilst getting our breath back the sky started to become lighter. At 6:47am this beautiful photo was captured.

The struggles of an early morning wake up and exercise was more than worth it in the end for the breathtaking view.

For anyone wanting to re-create this activity we recommend taking a torch and planning your route wisely (as there are several ways to climb up which vary in difficulty).

We would highly recommend experiencing this sometime if your life!

Thank you for reading.
