Sighs of The Alhambra

Before I write part two of the last blog, because I don´t want to do it right now and ´cos I´ve been looking through my Alhambra photos with longing I thought I´d share some here and dream of being there again.

You know what it´s like when something is on your doorstep, you plan on visitng or re-visiting someday. Well I´ve decided that to make those trips happen sooner. There are/were so many place in the UK I wanted to visit, now I´m in Andalucia and my list is LONG.

The Alhambra is about an hour and a half drive from home and from our holiday rental Casa El Regüelo but life and time steal away many pleasures.






If you´re looking for some reading material before you come my favourite book of the moment is Spanish Recognitions by Mary Lee Settle. There´s a wonderful line in it that says

"....if you cannot relearn wonder again at the Alhambra, you may as well stay at home and die."
