utrecht, the netherlands
I'm kind of a sucker for botanical gardens. I love seeing all of the lush landscapes in the world condensed into one plot of land. It's a little unnatural, yes, but oh so gorgeous! While visiting Utrecht, I stopped by the Utrecht University Botanic Gardens. The grounds were easy to walk, and they have a small café and gift shop at the entrance. Perhaps the highlight of the whole visit was their butterfly room. It's a small room where butterflies fly as they please and you can see them spectacularly close. They also have hills you can climb for a gorgeous view of the whole garden.
