Schloss Wolfsgarten is simply one of the most wondrous places I know. With a stately park that emulates my beloved English landscape so well and huge rhododendrons bushes submerging the gardens in pink and lilac blossoms each spring, I can’t think of any place that comes as close to my idea of countryside perfection and although I have visited countless times over the years already, I keep on coming back for more time and time again.

Since I am trying to keep my blog a little more up to date with my life these days, I’ve decided to only post about my trip to Spain last year sporadically whenever the inspiration hits and today I’m going to use this month’s travel link up prompt “Unexpected Places” as an excuse to skip ahead in the timeline and write about Granada. I hope you will enjoy this piece!
I’m sure I’m not the only person whose main reason for visiting the city of Granada in Andalusia was seeing the Alhambra. I had dreamt about walking through this majestic Moorish palace for years and in my mind the stories and legends surrounding this ancient fortress had taken form long before my trip to Spain was even thought of. As both a history nerd and an insufferable romantic, I knew that the Alhambra was one of those places that I just had to experience for myself one day – but now that I have been, I have also come to realize that a visit to the Alhambra isn’t quite complete without a visit to the city that it ruled for many, many centuries.

Conwy was the first stop on our trip through North Wales this April and we really couldn’t have started our journey in a better place: Conwy’s spectacular geographical location close to both the mountains and the sea would have been enough to entice me, but combined with the quaint historical center that was over 800 years old and the ancient castle that majestically overlooked the town, it really encompassed everything I love about Great Britain in one perfect little package.

After spending good portion of the previous week sick in bed, it feels great to be back to my normal self again – everything just seems to be better and brighter when you don’t feel like laying down and sleeping all the time! I’m still sneezing and today I woke up sounding like a grow, but I finally feel like I can use my brain again and for that I am definitely very thankful.

Isn't spring simply the most delightful time of the year? There's obviously something special about every single season, but during spring I definitely always feel like I have a little extra pep in my step! I love how fresh the air smells in the morning and how comforting the sunbursts feel on my skin after months of covering up under four layers of clothing, but most of all I love how much more energized I feel!
