As soon as you arrive at your destination you most likely hit the ground running and set out to see all the sights possible.

There is probably no better way to do this than sitting in a beautiful park or garden and take in the fresh air and atmosphere, unless of course you're in the Caribbean and enjoy the seaside. While I was on my solo trip to Paris I did not get to visit many of the parks and garden because it was too cold, and trust me, coming from the Caribbean anything less than 18 degrees Celsius is cold for us.
