Cornwall Trip & More Bastille

It's only been a few weeks since I saw Bastille play Union Chapel in Islington for the Streets of London charity fundraiser, but I am a Stormer (huge fan) so naturally I had tickets to see them again at the Eden Project on June 15.

I travelled to Cornwall with my aunt and we made a little 'Girls Trip' out of it. We drove down on Thursday (and it is a long drive) and stayed in a lovely B&B. I went downt to the Eden Project in the evening, for the show, and managed to get really close to the barrier.

Rationale was the opening act and he was brilliant. He has a phenomenal voice and was good at getting the crowd warmed up for the main act.

Then came Bastille. Now, I'm a little biased but they were...there just aren't words for how good they were. Amazing! I had so much fun and even teared up a little when they played 'Pompeii' as their last song.

Because I had an Eden Sessions wristband, entry to the Eden Project was free the next day. It is definitely worth checking out for the indoor rainforest, but it does get very humid in the biome.

Later that Friday, my aunty & I went to see 'The Mummy' starring Tom Cruise. It was good but I didn't love it. Too many scary creatures for me. Then we went or a lovely meal at Prezzo. 

Saturday came and it was time to return home. The drive took 6 hours because we got a little lost and stuck in traffic.

Overall it was a lovely break and the highlight was definitely seeing Bastille perform. I had so much fun, in fact, that I've only gone and booked a ticket to see them next Tuesday. The obsession continues! :P 

Have you ever been to the Eden Project? I'd love to know your thoughts.

Thank you for reading! x
