Hope you enjoyed reading my last 2 posts on Madrid and Seville. If you are planning a trip to Spain I would say you read those posts first as they give you an introduction to Spain. Anyhow, after reluctantly leaving Seville to head to Granada, I finally made my way to this city. Granada was an interesting mixture of Moorish and Spanish architecture and needless to say the main reason for me to visit the city was the Alhambra. However, Granada did pleasantly surprise me. There was a lot more to the city than the Alhambra and it looked like a scene out of the Arabian nights. I took a taxi to get to our hotel and it costed about 30 €. Continue reading
Hope you enjoyed reading my blog post on “Madrid in 2 days” last week. So from Madrid, I headed down south towards the very beautiful city of Seville (pronounced Seviya). Seville was everything Madrid wasn’t. It’s known as the “Frying Pan” of Spain and is located in the Andalusian region. I loved this place as it gave me the actual flavor of Spain that Madrid lacked. The weather was nice and warm (can get really hot in summer), the streets and buildings were beautiful, the sangria strong and the tapas hot. If you want to see a Flamenco show in Spain – I would highly suggest you do so in the South. One of the mistakes I made was not spending enough time in Seville. I would highly suggest you spend at-least 2 days here. But if you were on a time crunch like me, follow my itinerary below: Continue reading
Madrid is Spain’s central capital. It’s a cosmopolitan city full of plaza’s, museums, fun places to eat and a buzzing nightlife. I went to Spain couple of months back and Madrid was my first stop during the trip and it definitely dint disappoint. Since I just had 2 days, I was constantly on the move to cover all the attractions in the city under a time crunch. Feel free to spread this over 3 days if you have more time to visit the city.

Hello Fellow Travelers,
This past month I got the chance to visit the hot springs at the Tabacon Resort. Sitting in the middle of the lush cloud-forest, with a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano, this is one of the most pristine and beautiful places in Costa Rica. They have a number of different hot springs, each designed in a unique way with a different water temperature and mineral content. The ambiance is very natural with trees all around and volcanic rocks and sand at the bottom of the hot springs. The water is naturally heated from the volcano and flows all through the resort.
