During my gap year I spend 3 months in Cadiz in the South of Spain. I had an amazing time there; learning to speak Spanish, surfing almost every evening and meeting new people. Cadiz, especially the old city, is a beautiful place and there aren’t to many tourists due to the fact that there is no airport very close by. The second month my mum came to visit me there and besides showing her all of Cadiz, we also stayed in Sevilla for a couple of days. In comparison to Cadiz, there were a lot more tourists here, but nevertheless was it a lovely city with beautiful architecture.
I will be back soon…

Cactus – Cacti, members of the plant family Cactaceae, in the order Caryophyllales.
The ancient Aztects of South America held cactus to be very important and can be found in many of their sculptures and drawings. The national coat of arms of Mexico shows an eagle, a snake, and cactus. Christopher Columbus brought the first cactus to Europe and every year, scientists discover new kinds of cactus.
I have come to love these little plants, and now they are getting more populair, I start to see them everywhere.
So here is an ode to the Cactus –
