When I showed you all the street art I saw in Valencia I told you I would tell you about the rest of that day some other time. I’m gonna be honest with you – I forgot about that. But then I remembered, so it’s all good. So time to look at our visit to the botanical garden in Valencia.
Jardí Botanic is located right outside the old wall that used to protect the center of the city, and we walked to the garden from our tour through Carmen. The wall was pretty epic and impossible to take pictures of. 🙁The special thing about this garden is that it’s the home of a bunch of stray cats, and there are apparently people taking care of them and feeding them. <3 Cats and plants, like too good to be true. It was hard to take pictures of the place as the trees were GIGANTIC, but the air felt so fresh and it was absolutely wonderful to walk around in the garden and just breathe. And look at the fish.I only really started taking pictures when we got to the area for cacti. <3It was so cool. And these fuzzy ones looked amazing in the sun.But most of all I just love that cacti are so graphical. Like look at this! So great.But I know, you’re all wondering the same thing, where are all the cats?!?! I wondered the same thing, as we only got to see this ONE cat. It was a national holiday in Spain that day though so there were a lot of people, and our theory was that the cats just stayed the hell away from the children running around and stuff, haha. My mother and sister visited this place last year and saw like fifty cats just chilling, so I’m excited about visiting again a day with less people and look at all the kitties.
And also just get to breathe that air again.
