Photo Blogging Challenge (October 2016): Water

october-results

On our recent trip to Barcelona, we also went to Girona and that’s where my 5 photos came from. Girona is a city in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region, beside the River Onyar. It’s known for its medieval architecture, walled Old Quarter (Barri Vell) and the Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress. Landscaped gardens line the Passeig Arqueològic, a walkway following the Old Quarter’s medieval walls, which include watchtowers with sweeping views.

Hindustan Organic Garden

Part of our trip to Thekkady was a visit to Hindustan Organic Garden where we had a half an hour tour of their garden. The garden was full of spices and herbs. Great opportunity to learn more about plants and their power. Friendly guide explained everything, starting from names and description of each specie to its utilisation. We even tasted some herbs and chocolates.
