The Alhambra

I think that eventually I would love to go to Spain. Heck, I would love to just take a few months off and see all of Europe for that matter. I have always loved architecture, particularly old stuff and I am into history as well. I originally was a History Major in college and the two loves combine well. Europe is the perfect place to delve into those hobbies as well as combine them with my other hobby, photography. I would love to go visit some of the Spain attractions such as the Alhambra in Granada.

The Alhambra is a vast Moorish fortified palace. It’s so big that it takes up a pretty big portion of the city center itself. At one point it was the residence of the Muslim kings of Granada and later a renaissance palace was inserted by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor.

I would also like to check out other areas such as Madrid attractions as well as get to Paris. A good friend of mine got to go to Paris somewhat recently and I am very jealous. Of course that would mean flying, which I hate. I need to take it baby steps at a time. The flight to Nassau next month is about two and a half hours and that’s about all I want to fly any time soon.

  1. You should definitely go, as this place is worth the trip! Spain is an excellent travel destination, with each region offering its own unique character, attractions and food.
