There are two beautiful gardens for nature-lovers to explore in the stunning Spanish city of Madrid. The sprawling Retiro gardens - spectacular lungs of the city almost half the size of NY’s Grand Central Pk - approx 350 acres - and the much smaller though fascinating historical Royal Botanic Gardens which has a collection of more than 5000 plants. After 14 days of driving around Spain from Barcelona along the east Costa Brava coast, then across the Pyrenees to San Sebastián in Basque Country - down through Rioja to Madrid it was blissful just to hang around and literally smell the flowers!!! Like most tourist destinations you have to pay to experience this Botanic Gardens. But there’s so much to soak up, even just walking through the multi-leveled garden. The plants are from all over the world with a strong collection of edible plants set out within formal beds. Loved the Insect Motel included in these pics which is designed to provide a home for pollinating insects like bees with different sized logs as habitats for different species of bees. 🐝 💕 at Royal Botanic Gardens Madrid

Serious question: How do you get your head back in the game after a long time away? As a full-time freelancer with no set schedule, I’m finding it a big challenge, especially this time without even Elbo. Do I just need to get that whole work/life balance balanced? Do I need to find a job that pays me to get on planes and report back on cool stuff I find? (Option 2, option 2!) I know there are already a million travel bloggers doing a good job, but oh man, what a dream job. Speaking of, here is a dreamy image of Madrid’s Royal Botanical Garden in Retiro Park. 🌿🌿🌿 #travelphotography #traveljournal #askingforafriend #askingformyself #botanicalgardens #madridgardens #madridtourism #worklifebalance #botanicalphotography #wheretonext ::bookmarks @atlasobscura ‘s ‘work with us’ page in case they ever need a graphic designer or a researcher:: 😀 at Real Jardín Botánico

A peek at the windows of my soul. I am obsessed and love to dance. I value random acts of kindness and thoughtfulness more than any material gift. I am more critical of myself than anybody else can be. I always work very hard but think I can always do better. Would you let others peek into your windows? . . . . . #windows #windowstothesoul #honesttalk #gettoknowme #madrid #madridspain #travelphotography #vacationphotos #angelacalestini #lovetotravel #seetheworld #lovemadrid #windowseat #madridgardens at Calle Castellana Madrid

Less than one month left in Murcia and my mind is blown. Can’t believe I’ll be leaving this gorgeous little city and heading to somewhere as insane as London. So incredibly grateful to be living this crazy life of mine. Word vom of the day 💭 Something I love about travelling is how special and unique the relationships you make with friends are. Whether you spend time with them for a 1 day, or a few months, there are hundreds of people who have helped shape the way I think and act today. People that were once strangers. There are friends I’ve made that I may never cross paths with again, and some who somehow always end up in the same place as me time and time again. Whether I see these people again or not, I am still lucky enough to be connected through social media. It’s such an incredible feeling to be in touch with so many people, despite being so far from most. at Castillo de Monteagudo
