Traveling to Spain, I visited the beautiful Alhambra, watched the sunset at San Miguel Alto, and enjoyed lots of excellent tapas and tinto de verano.

Free tapas with every drink!
Cold at night during the winter
I spent a full semester in Granada, because apart from wanting to go on vacation, I also studied in this place, in this way I had the opportunity and the blessing of being able to enjoy this wonderful place for a very long time, thanks to this I had a lot of time to find the best places to enjoy and do any type of activity. I studied every day of the week, but I spent my breaks sitting in tapas bars and weekends exploring new places, no matter if they were near or far. Granada is surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountains, so in winter you can go skiing and in summer you can go hiking, the versatility of this place is unique. The places I visited while traveling to Spain included Granada Seville, Cordoba, Malaga, Gibraltar and Murcia. I've only mentioned things closer to Granada because I spent most of my time there, but you could easily take a tour of Andalusia if you want to see lots of different places
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I wish I had visited Nerja. It’s a pretty beach town in Malaga that many people I know went to and highly recommended it.
How was the food?
La Buena Vida in Granada for cheap drinks that each come with a free tapas of your choice! My favourite was the croquettas de espinaca (spinach croquettes). In the end you could get three drinks and three tapas for about €6.60.
What tips would you give a friend?
Tinto de verano is like a cheaper version of sangria, would recommend
Be prepared for cold nights during the winter in Granada due to the surrounding mountains, but in the summer it's very hot!
When visiting Spain, to get to Granada, get a flight to Malaga Airport and then an ALSA bus to Granada. Within Granada use the buses which were about €1.20. Take ALSA buses between cities in Spain.
You can ski there during the winter! It's easy to get a bus to the mountains and spend the day/ a weekend skiing.
Didn't use an agency, booked flights on sky scanner and hostels through booking.com and airbnb.
