Last month we revisited Jardi Botanic Marimurtra nestled along the Costa Brava’s rocky coastline. Garden’s aren’t really my thing, yet this one I was drawn after an internet finding things to do outside the city. Okay, it was the gondola overlooking the sea that did it!
The gondola isn’t the garden’s only star. Each twist and turn hold new gems: tropical plants, ponds, sea views, terracotta walls and sweet fragrance scents. Continue reading “Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 2”
Summer’s being bittersweet this week. The days are hot, the wind’s been enough to make me nearly cry cycling in, mostly when I really don’t need it to be so windy, yet provides a little respite from the heat when not sprint cycling and beach temps are prefect for sneak way beach siestas. The bitter sweetness, sunrises are later and sunsets earlier and September starts in a week signals Autumn Fall’s arrival. However there’s still 5 weeks of my favourite season, plenty of time to be outside as much possible soaking up that warm sunshine!
I hope you’re having a great week! I’ve been getting to the gym early at the cost of Continue reading “Late August Catch Up”
My thoughts are with those caught up and those lost on Thursdays horrific events in Barcelona on Las Ramblas. My beautiful adopted city turned upside down in a matter of moments. Thankfully all my friends are okay. I also want to thank the emergence services and the Mossos d’Esquadra for their rapid response and amazing work. #totsomBarcelona #notincpor #notenimpor

I was more than okay for this past weekend to be a little more low key than action packed. Friday blocked sinuses thanks to allergies morphed into a blocked nose, sore throat and then cough that I’m nearly over. Saturday evening I couldn’t sleep, everything ached and in desperation I tried the head massager thingy which helped and then the idea of reflexology popped up.
A quick Google search later for reflexology for block sinuses later I was breathing better. The site then suggested facial reflexology to help sinuses. I just wanted the cold gone Continue reading “Reflexology and Rainbows”
This past weekend was a welcome catch up rest break from all the action packed weekends of late. Catching up on chores which didn’t seem to happen as I caught up on Man x Man the first K-drama to be broadcast internationally an hour after screening in Korea on Netflix. In 20 languages!
The series finished 2 weeks ago and while I’ve got 2 more episodes to go, unlike most of Netflix’s shows that you binge at once, with this show you had to wait like in Korea! I also started watching GLOW: Glamour Ladies Of Wrestling, Continue reading “Netflix, Glow, Wonder Woman and The Zoo”
