I think it was the weekend after we heard about a possible move to the UK, that I went to our local bookstore. I was browsing through the books that were displayed.
Surprisingly, I came across this book "We bought a Zoo" (the one my mother is holding in her hands). I thought, that is an interesting story (short version here)....O, it's about a zoo in the UK! O wow, it's in Devon!! O wow, it's near Dartmoor Park!!!
The first attempt to visit Dartmoor Zoological Park was in January, when my mother visited us. She had read the book too and was intrigued as well. Sadly, when we arrived, we found out that it was too cold and the animals were all inside.
But this time Jenny our nanny ;)) is here. She has read the book too and I decided this might be the right time. And it was; the Zoo was open, the weather was great and there were maybe 5-10 other cars in the carpark.
I've never been in a more peaceful Zoo! It's not very big,but it's spacious. You feel like the animals have enough space to actually move around.
And I met the writer's mother :) who is the owner of the Zoo, if I'm correct.
