    I have a botanic garden in my city...it's considered to be one of the bigest ones in Europe, so lots of people come to visit it...
    It's really nice during spring and winter...

    Botanic Gardens are the best place for philosophical thinking IMO.

    anael: where is this garden and what is its name?

    kaom: well, I dont think you'll get raped or anything... >.>
    but different areas come with different problems. Spain is probably the least safe of all the areas you mentioned, depending on where you go. You need to be really careful of your wallet in big Italian cities, because pickpockets are rampant/skilled there. and its never a bad idea to carry some mace around. and never leave your bag unattended, even for a second. my friend had her bag stolen from right next to her, which sucked a lot since she had her passport in it... just not a fun experience. I dont mean to scare you, its really not that bad at all, but just be careful, hmm? I never had any problems cuz my friend and I are both pretty big/trained, so...

    as for the sakura festivals, nearly all botanic gardens worldwide have a japanese section to them, so most gardens DO do something like sakura matsuri.

    I'll PM you the links as I find them again. When are you leaving?

    Aikido - Not for a couple of months, it's not a rush. (Which is why our travel plans are still kind of vague...)

    pentaelemental - Really? I find I'm usually too busy enjoying the view and the scent to any thinking about philosophy at all...well, I guess maybe in a zen-style garden I'd be able to do that. It would be a nice setting for it.

    Anael - Tell us! I'd really like to check it out if I'm in your neighbourhood.

    rui_aiya - You could always try a rock garden style. Maybe with some bright flowers planted here and there, and a Japanese Maple for some colour higher up, if they'll grow in your area. (Or a different tree with coloured leaves - or one that blooms in the springtime, that'd be nice, too.)

    loli....


    about gardens, i never had the opportunity to visit a "good" one.. ^^"

    btw, do you like "ordered" gardens or prefer more "natural" ones ..? i prefer the second to relax, but the first has a sense of greatness that is very appealing...
    (not sure if what i wrote was understandable )

    Believe it or not, but I have never seen an actual garden before, far less any type of exotic plants. Although I would really love to, something beautiful would do this monotonous life of mine justice. Also, you all are quite lucky to be able to tavel the world and experience the different cultures, and religions throughout the world. I hope you have a great time.

    (i do not know what it is about you that closes and opens; only something in me understands the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses) nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.

    I love really nice gardens, I wish that I had a pretty garden but i love going to the public gardens. I find them very relaxing and peaceful.
