14. Go to Cadbury World

Number 14 on my 30 before 30 list is to visit Cadbury World. Now, I’ve always been a chocoholic and had never visited, the British Heart Foundation are running a dechox in March and I said that I would rather trek the Great Wall of China again than give up chocolate for a month!
