Hi, I know I’m super late with this. I’ve had the absolute worst wifi connection in my past couple of hotels, so I haven’t been able to get anything written on my computer. So, I’m gonna try to write a couple of city recap posts! First in line: Granada!
Our first full day in Granada was absolutely jam-packed with stuff. We started with a guided tour of the Alhambra, an ancient palace and fortress complex. The complex was filled with beautiful gardens and fountains, along with the obvious Moorish palace ruins. You could probably spend hours on end exploring the rich history of this place, but we sadly only had about two hours. Luckily for me, there were tons of cats all throughout the palace, and some of them were even friendly enough to let me pet them.
After our tour of the Alhambra came some relaxing Arabic baths. We weren’t allowed to have phones inside, so I don’t have any pictures, but the building looked very similar to the Alhambra, with high arches and beautiful mosaics everywhere. After soaking in the different temperature tubs, we got a 15 minute massage, which was honestly exactly what I needed. We’d hiked up the equivalent of 40 flights of stairs to reach the Alhambra, so we were all pretty exhausted.
The Arabic baths were perfect to relax and recoup before we headed to our Gypsy Flamenco show. It actually took place in a restaurant that was built into the cliffs of Granada. This type of flamenco show is much more relaxed and fun than some other flamenco shows (according to our tour director. I have nothing to compare to, obviously). It was also nice to get free sangria during the show.
We made our way to a panoramic viewpoint after the show, got a little dinner, then spent the rest of the night clubbing. We didn’t have a ton of time in Granada, but boy did we make the most of it.
Next stop: Ibiza!
Stay tuned for more updates,
