Sneaking off to beach for a dip to cool off and sunbathe’s now a daily thing. Being warm without being wrapped up in layers makes me smile. Feeling the warm sunshine on my skin makes me happy. My favourite season’s here, Summer!

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!

Nestled along the rocky Costa Brava coastline is the spellbinding Marmurtra Jardi Botanic. A botanical garden that has you feeling like you’re in the royal gardens of King’s Landing or ancient Greece with it’s Linnaeus Pavilion.
I first saw the gardens entrance on the back of a motorbike last year finding Cala Francesc, Continue reading “Marimurtra Jardi Botanic”
