One of the things we definitely wanted to do on a recent trip to Scotland was visit Edinburgh Zoo. Naturally we were hoping to be able to see the pandas – a timed ticket for their enclosure is a must and is included in the main ticket price which is cheaper if booked in advance. Thankfully we were rewarded in our planning by arriving just in time to see the male panda enjoying some bamboo before lying down for a sleep in the sunshine.

Back in May we made a return visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park (you can read about our first visit here). Then, as now, we found it to be an excellent day out and well worth the entrance fee. Since our last visit they had added some new animals which were a real highlight – three new polar bears to make four in total, plus some armadillos which we’d never seen before and which I had no idea moved quite so fast!
Back in August, I went on an excellent holiday to Oslo in Norway. One of the first things I did after checking into my hotel (a very smooth process, I’d definitely recommend them, and they are literally next door to Oslo Central Train Station) was to take a walk around the city and familiarise myself with the local area. Some of these places I visited again more fully and some I chose not to revisit because there were other places I wanted to see more since there are only so many hours in the day even for me when I’m in full on travelling mode. (You may have noticed I can pack a lot in when I go travelling!) But this is a good starting place for what will be a series of posts about the places I visited during my time in Norway and mainly focus on places I visited but did not explore fully.
