Nature always has a calming effect on me and even the shortest trek through it is enough to clear my mind, body, and soul from any stresses it might have. I never thought to wonder what a botanical garden would be like in another country prior to this trip, but I'm glad that our family friend proposed the Diomidous Botanical Gardens as it provided a welcome change of scenery (as we were getting pretty tired of ruins at this point) and a nice respite from the scorching Greek summer sun.

Exploring plants from another land can show you just how different another culture is, but also just how similar it is and thus how connected they really are. It brings a whole new meaning to "It's a small world after all", as even the tiniest of grain can produce the mightiest of trees, and the most expansive of forests. Anyway, we welcomed the brand new sights, sounds, and scenery with open and curious arms.

My favourite part by far as the "swamp" path and the kind of spooky feeling that walking over such a dark, green splotchy coloured water produced. It was beautiful, but in the back of my mind, I was a bit worried that an ancient nymph or some sort of swamp thing would grab me and drag me down. But, fortunately for me (or should I say, unfortunately? Because I do love Greek mythology and the Percy Jackson series and that sort of encounter would definitely be my one-way ticket to Camp Half-Blood), there's no such thing, and the only aquatic creatures around were cute little turtles.

Speaking of turtles, I loved the turtle enclave where the tiny guys would swim around peacefully, totally unbothered by the people hanging about trying to take pictures of them.

But turtles or not, the Diomidous Botanical Garden is definitely worth a stop when you're in Athens. It's like a mini-vacation within your vacation because you get to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets or tourist areas and take a leisurely stroll through all of the greenery. I will definitely be coming back here again, except maybe next time with a picnic basket as there were plenty of cool places to sit down, eat, and talk throughout the park, but we didn't think to bring any food with us. So, near the end, we were so hungry and thirsty that we had to head the main cafeteria area for sustenance.
