On monthly basis, daddy's school is organising trip to selected places - cheaper ticket coach and entrance fee. We've checked out a few and straightly purchased two for this month hehe. So the first trip was Longleat safari, considering that Aariz would love to meet the animals. So on that day, we woke up early, kesian Aariz mengantuk lagi. First time ni Aariz naik coach =)
Our coach departed promptly at 8:30, as scheduled sebab nak sampai awal. It was a daytrip jadi kenalah berbaloi. Knowing that it was a very long journey (for Aariz) risau juga dia meragam but the idea of packed lunch has saved us. When I saw a sign - 43km to Southampton, wow never thought it was that far! Nevertheless, the journey was taking us on a delightful stunning green scenery. And we passed via Bradford on Avon, at a moment a think I've left my heart in there. Cantik sangat, you can google if you want.
It was nearly three hours journey, Aariz had his nap as a preparation to explore hehe. Longleat has two main attractions, the safari and adventure park.
We began our day with trip around the safari in our coach - it was permitted to leave the coach and walk with giraffe and zebra, but we didn't. Because nobody did so pun..semua pun pusing2 dalam kereta je kan. While mummy and daddy sibuk tengok all those camels and ostriches bagai, Aariz macam biasa 'bird..bird'..suka betul dengan bird.
It was my first time ever seeing white wolves at the final part of the safari. And they were difficult to spot tapi bila dah nampak tu memang scary! I don't know, I mean, I just felt so.
So done with longleat safari, we moved on to the adventure park. Cruise and steam railway were among the most highlighted. The cruise trip took us around Half-Mile lake. Sea lions, hippo and Nico (a gorilla) live in there. Kesian Nico, still mourning over his dead wife. Sentimental pula gorilla kan.
On our Lady Lenka boat, the other one was Lady Bath. What a name =)
And other attractions were castles, maze,pet corner..but everything in here are nature based..
Daddy and Aariz unwind infront of home to the 7th Marquess of Bath, but very private, no photo!
One day trip to Longleat was worth the cost, except the bird show =( frankly boring, I should say. Oh please go and learn from Everland Korea team with first class bird show. The bird show should be Aariz's most favorite one. But big thanks daddy for bringing us along on a beautiful day! Next is Bath.
