Madrid: The Royal Botanical Gardens

It may seem weird to begin my travel tales from the last day of my Europe trip, with images from the Royal Botanical Gardens no least, but it was this 30+ degree visit that really stuck with me alongside many other favourite memories. 

Located in Madrid's centre, this little oasis is worth the 4 euros' entry fee (or 2 euros if you're a student). Their invernaderos or greenhouses were absolutely magical and I could have easily spent another hour wandering around if time permitted. 

Address: Plaza de Murillo, 2, 28014 Madrid, Spain
