OK, so it isn't so much a golden ticket as it is a computer print out of the e-ticket I purchased online but it still got me into Cadbury World today. It was really fun. First off they gave you a total of 3 regular sized candy bars through out the course of the tour which is the way to my heart, especially when it's Cadbury chocolate. We got to see how the chocolate was made, formed, packaged and shipped. It was great. It wasn't too kiddie oriented which I think Chris was thankful for. After the tour and a quick zip through the gift shop, we went to Cadbury World Essence which showed how the creators came up with the idea for the famous "Dairy Milk" chocolate and then we were able to choose what we wanted to combine with Cadbury Dairy Milk for our own new flavour. Mine was marshmallows and chocolate, a classic, but not one I've had from Cadbury. It was delectable!
After we found out hotel and brought our stuff in, we went to explore Gloucester. Yup, now I've been to 2 Gloucesters in my life so far. We wandered around the docks (which isn't nearly as shady as it seems as I write this) and then we went to Gloucester Cathedral. It was absolutely gorgeous. It was also really great because unlike in St. Paul's Cathedral, I was able to take some pictures inside.
Now Chris has gone for a run and I'm catching up on computer things. It's amazing how much you miss in a few days of being computer-less.
