Spain, Granada Guide (B): Granada Travel Guide

Sometimes you find a place that perfectly suits you; culture, food, art, history, people and weather combine in just the right way and you fall in love. For me Granada is one of those places and has got to be one of the top five cities I’ve visited. It’s not just the tapas, flamenco, wine, caves and bars that do it for me (although those things all help); there’s an energy to Granada that struck a chord with me personally. It was something I felt immediately upon arriving in the city, and something I dream of still. Apparently a lot of people feel this way.

Unfortunately we only spent three nights in Granada, but we took full advantage of its attributes. We slept in a cave, scored free tickets to the incredible Alhambra and tapas’d as much as one can tapas. Oh Granada, take me back. 

We arrived to Granada from Alicante using rideshare service BlaBlaCar. Our ride cost €24 each and took 3.5 hours. We were dropped on the outskirts of the city, as our driver was continuing past, which can be a downside to travelling via rideshare if your ride isn’t staying nearby. With no taxis or buses in sight we were forced to walk in 38°c heat to the nearest cafe, where we managed to organise a taxi to our accommodation for €8.90. Worth it. ......
