Spain150 days / January - February - March 2020
Highs & Lows
Flamenco performances and Islamic architecture.
The trip was cut short due to the beginning of COVID-19.
In only three months, I went from barely understanding a single word in Spanish to being able to communicate with locals and make friends from all around the world. All the while enjoying amazing food, beautiful views, and unforgettable experiences.
Q & A
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Someone stole my phone from my backpack. Just like any destination in the world, always be cautious of where you put your valuables when walking through public spaces.
How was the food?
Granada has a law where tapas must be served whenever you order a drink in a restaurant. The food was amazing, even for those who don't eat meat. I recommend trying Shawarma King, as there are probably hundreds throughout the city. La goma is a great vegan restaurant.
Southern Spain is well known for the blazing heat of the summer, but the nights are cool - especially in the Albaicín because of its altitude. I recommend bringing a variety of clothes and pack for the possibility of wearing layers to adjust to the changing climate.
