  • Europe fascinates me with its architecture and history, but nothing is more beautiful and catches my attention like its parks, nature, green, flowers. Dublin has many parks, Phoenix park is the more famous and one of largest parks in Europe. St Stephens Green park is the more visited for the people who lives here, because is right in the center of the city. Also we have Merrion Square, where you can find Oscar Wilde's estatue.
    But, any of them has the beauty of National Botanic Garden. My first visit was in 2009, and to be honest, I didn't like much. I was an aupair at that time, and the girl who I used to look after wasn't too patient to admire, stop and examine the plants and flowers. The second time was interesting, It was a sunny day, and I was in a good mood. When I left home I met a lady and smiled at her. She smiled back and asked me where I was going to. Few minutes later, I was in her house, waiting for her to wear comfortable shoes and we went to the Botanic Garden together. Was the first time she had seen me, but she told me a lot about her private life. Pretty weird, probably she really needed someone to talk to.
    I fell in love with Botanic Garden, I go there every week during the Summer and Spring. I love to see how much the flowers and plants grows every week, how colorful it gets and how much people get happy when they cross the many gate. If you look from outside, it seems to be small, cause the main entrance is quite narrow, but as much as you go farther, you can see lake, three glass houses, many type of flowers, plants from whole world.
    I suppose, "The Surprise" that I'd had after seeing how big and amazing it is, made me to like this place even more. I go there if I am sad, happy, feeling lonely, etc. Many good memories and people who I spent time there will be forever in my mind.
