2011 came to an end with a beautiful trip to Malaga, the Botanical Gardens, and the towns of Frigiliana and Nerja, where the sun sparkles and the light is very beautiful.
Nerja is one of the towns where my family is from is Spain, it was a treat to visit such a beautiful place where I shared a traditional paella and delicacies from the sea with a very special cousin. We sat under a pergola covered with grape leaves, on the beach, facing the water and soaking in the sun.
The Botanical Gardens of Malaga is a sanctuary and oasis that was once a palace for royalty. It was originally created in 1855 by the Marquis of Casa Loring and his wife. In 1990 these gardens were taken over by the "Cuidad de Malaga". There are currently 2,500 subtropical species! There were enormous Rosemary and Lavender bushes, streams, waterfalls and a portion of the Gardens where there are trees from all over the world. There is a lot of magic in these gardens.
