Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 2

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”

Cirque Du Soleil, Breaking Habits And A Pink Moon

Happy May!

I hope you’re had a great May Day and having a great week so far!

Breaking bad old habits are 10 times harder than creating them. I always read starting new habits take 21 days. I don’t often read about breaking them. Or is breaking them about starting them? 

Few articles mention identifying the triggers that set off habits or that will power is the most powerful key you have against stopping them. Our brains like the path of least resistant to keep energy levels Continue reading “Cirque Du Soleil, Breaking Habits And A Pink Moon”

Cala Castell, Castell Cap Roig And The Zoo

I hope you had a great weekend! 

Spring as I like it arrived this Sunday. A sunny 18-20C making me one happy girl! Okay, maybe not being impatient wanting to wear shorts now and knowing that’s it’s not quite warm enough for shorts yet. Soon Nat, soon!

This weekend we got out the city again to walk more of the Camin de Ronda or part of the old anti smugglers route along the Costa Brava. The way to find path starts is to ignore the sat nav once you’re the chosen costal town, seeing where the car ends up letting your inner explorer take over. Back tracking however to Friday the cats had another vet visit.  Continue reading “Cala Castell, Castell Cap Roig And The Zoo”

Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 1

Good Friday we made it out the city or rather I made it out the city for the first time in ages! P travels a lot, I don’t as the cats are on multi medicine a day. It’s easier and cheaper for me to be the main long term cat carer. I’m okay with it and happy with day trips.

Late last Spring we found nestled along the Costa Brava coast line to Jardi Botanic Marimurtra or Marimurtra botanical gardens. We liked it so much it’s always on the go to list.

The gardens are spellbinding. Continue reading “Early Spring Jardi Botanic Marimurtra Part 1”

Early Spring Sunshine

Spring’s here early and I’ve caught the cliche Spring Cleaning. Maybe it’s the change of light that’s making a few things look tired and faded or the light’s making things look different and in need of change. Whichever one, I’ve been switching and moving things around in the apartment, having a mini KonMari Method clean out and feeling change of happier energy in general. Cliche I know! Spring’s always a wake up season after a season of hibernating so maybe I’ve caught that energy and have a whole host of ideas I want to get moving.

Living in a city you don’t notice seasonal changes as much. Grey becomes a different tone of lifeless grey. Continue reading “Early Spring Sunshine”
