    Day 10 - Granada - Best Day Ever!

    September 19, 2017 in Spain

    Today might have been the best day of the trip. We woke up and had our best breakfast yet - fresh mango juice, fresh peach juice, cafe con leche, and two falafel tomato sandwiches. Then we wandered around the streets of Granada for several hours. One of the highlights of the day (and the first real planned event of the trip) was the Arab baths and massages. 90 minutes of different temperature baths - hot, medium, and super cold, with a 30 minute massage. Followed up with a siesta and a walk up the mountain to Mirador de San Nicholas. We drank a couple of glasses of wine with a beautiful view of the Alhambra and then decided to chase the sun until we found the most beautiful sunset view imaginable. We sat there for what felt like hours, basking in the beautiful view of the sunset and the city. Then we made our way back down to the city for a delicious dinner of mussels, peppers, and scallops. Now time for a good rest before our Alhambra visit tomorrow!Read more

    Day 9 - Granada Arrival!

    September 18, 2017 in Spain

    Spain's public transportation system is amazing. There have been zero issues so far. I thought we might have had our first today. We got on our train from Sevilla to Granada this morning and it immediately broke down. We were forced to get off the train and were told to wait for another train. I thought for sure it would take hours (or days, based on what I've seen in the US). Within 10 minutes, a new train arrived, we re-boarded, and maybe lost 30 minutes total.

    We arrived in Granada early afternoon. We got a quick lunch at a vegan tapas restaurant in the university area of the town and checked into our Airbnb for a much needed siesta. Then we headed off to the gypsy caves of Sacromonte for dinner and a flamenco show, which was really cool! On the walk back, we got a couple of beers on a cool terrace and now we are ready for bed!!! Excited for our next two days in this beautiful town - at first glance, I think we are going to love Granada!

    L'albacine le quartier arabe

    June 11, 2016 in Spain

    Situé en face de l'Alhambra nous passons de belvédère en mirador pour profiter de la vue. Nombreuses placettes fleurie. Ici toute les maisons s'appelle "Carmen" en référence à un mot arabe signifiant patio. Bien mignonnes ces Carmens!

    Sacramento, la colline des gitans

    June 13, 2016 in Spain

    A coté de l'Albacine vu sur l'Alhambra ce quartier de maison troglodites est plein de charmes. La vue est magnifique et le soir des nombreux bar proposent des spectacles de flamenco, la danse gitane.
    On en profite pour faire le petit musée des gitans, plutôt sympathique. Après 2 h de bus nous arrivons à Séville dans la soirée, après le repas nous tombons sur une procession impressionnant pour nous sans doute courant ici.Read more
