I’ve never been an outdoor enthusiast. The forests where I grew up were completely dominated by pines and spruces and they were boring and familiar to me. It also took 23 years before I placed my foot outside of the European border. Perhaps these are the reasons why I find botanical gardens so fascinating and peaceful.
I love to walk around the palm trees, banana plants and parrot flowers. And as a person who’s lived in cities most of my adult life, botanical gardens are a nice break from the concrete and bricks.
