Finalmente, Granada

I have fallen in love with this city. It’s simply magical.

Here are pictures from the famous Alhambra of Granada, a Moorish Fortress from the 14th century. It was the most detailed and beautiful place I have ever seen. There are also pictures from the Albacin, the oldest neighborhood of Granada. It is a neighborhood on a hill overlooking the Alhambra that is filled with white houses on windy coblestone roads that eventually lead you back down to Moroccan street markets.

I have been exploring, getting lost and trying all sorts of new food. All in spanish! This week has been filled with so many new adventures. I went to my first Moroccan tea house, which had the most beautiful atmosphere. I also went to my first Discoteca! It was an old theatre converted into a dance club. And today I went to the Arab Baths. It was amazing! It was a dimly lit spa that was filled with different temperature baths where you relaxed and drank mint tea before a massage. I’ve been living in a dream.

She went to Italy and it was truly amazing to see her blog, like yours and keep up with her! Your pictures are beautiful and I especially love the cat in the tree! You took me right back to when John and I got to travel to Spain and to the Alhambra! It was UNBELIEVABLE to us! I can’t imagine having the time to walk and explore and really get to know the people of Granada. You will come home and start cooking for everyone I bet!! ha!! I hope you can see the south beaches like the crazy rich Puerto Banus, Marbella area. Ronda is incredible too!!!

  2. Hello!
    I just stumbled upon you blog while looking up pictures of Spain on Google. But it looks like you are having an amazing time! All the pictures are stunning. I am really hoping I can study in Spain this upcoming fall semester, so this is super inspiring! What program are you going through? Anyways, I’ll probably be following your blog so I can get inspired to hopefully go to Spain!
