Nov 16, 2004 - Spain - of Mountains and Sea

The` South of Spain - Mountains and Sea Friday 22nd October 2004 Off to the South again. Down fairly quiet Autopistas and after a circle of Granada we find the selected campsite in the mountains. Really nice but a little disappointing in the views - nice but not spectacular - yes I know we are hard to please. Rather than cook we decide to try the campsite restaurant - and it's nice but more expensive than we are used to!! 37 Euros for the meal including wine - so about £24 GBP - so OK really!! Saturday 23rd October Off to the Sierra Nevada...

Oct 13, 2004 - Granada, Spain

The trip to Granada was all about the Alhambra. It's a huge fortress/palace/garden complex that was built by the Arabs and use by Spanish royalty ever since. I had tried to get tickets in Seville by having the hotel clerk call ahead but the reservations were booked up until the 18th. They did say, though, that if I got there early I could probably get in. In Granada the first day I stopped a couple of Americans to help me find the tourist office and they said that people they knew got in with no problem even though they walked up at about...

Sep 24, 2004 - Moorish Spain

Saturday 18 September was a long day of travel as we drove over 800kms from Barcelona to San Jose. The roads were great all the way and there was quite a change in scenery from the (relatively) gree hills around Barcelona through huges areas of orange plantations near Valencia and finally into the barren moonscape inland from San Jose. San Jose is a small town on the coast in the south-eastern corner of Spain and it it still well and truly summer there. We spent Sunday lazing on the beach in 30degree heat and swimming in the very warm sea...

Sep 19, 2004 - Grand Granada

We travelled to Granada today, it is a pretty cool city. We walked up this hill which had awesome views of the Alhambra... It is really hot today though, so we didn´t stick around for to long. There are alot of hippies here, and at one point when we walked down a cobbled street with markets and stuff, we thought we were back in Morocco!

Jul 14, 2004 - Te quiero Granada...

Ah...me gusta Granada. Finally I have come to a city where I can just rest and be peaceful. No big city hustle and bustle. I came here Monday from Madrid and extended my stay by two days because I liked it so much. Not that I´ve been doing a lot. Monday consisted of me getting lost for two hours from the train station...from 2:30-4:30, quite possibly the hottest hours of the day, with my 45 pound pack. Ick. The streets here are narrow and without signs, but I finally found my hostel, which is this amazing house with a kitchen, big clean...

Jun 14, 2004 - Fuengirola to Granada

We got on the bus with all our gear and made our way to the north east to the old city of Granada. We drove up to the Alhambra, the stronghold of the Moorish kingdom in the region. While the palace looked plain, although massive, from the outside the inside was exquisite and ornate. I guess the Muslim builders felt it was what's on the inside that counts (see the pictures). After making our way through the massive place we went down to the hotel before venturing out on the town which was very hilly. We went up and down while Prof. Bascaus...

Jun 8, 2004 - Granada

I wrote this in my e-mail Journal: Granada was in full party mode when I arrived as they were celebrating Corpus Christie. This entails street partys and processions as well as an all week party which takes place a little out of town at a huge fairground. Of course this needed to be sampled although I can't stay up partying all night like the Spanish, and their children! Granada also has the beautiful Alhambra which sits on a hill just outside the town centre. It is an extraordinary building and fully deserves its reputation. It is such a...

Jun 8, 2004 - teresa- Granada, Spain

Oh Granada! I don´t know if it´s the hostel or the people or the beauty of this city but I would love to stay here for longer. Last night Agnes and I went out for some tapas with 2 girls we met on the train, who were also staying at our hostel. I could get used to this tapas thing. They were yummy in my tummy. Today Agnes and I headed up to the Alhambra. It sits high above the city as if watching over her and protecting her. The view was incredible! It stretched beyond the city to the hills surrounding and the white caped mountains beyond....
