Alhambra

Alhambra – an alluring, romantic and significant monument to the Arabic/Spanish historical tale. It’s not difficult to see why Alhambra is Spains most visited tourist attraction. In 1237 when the Arabic Sultan Muhammad I al-Hamar, decided to build his “village of palaces”, he hoped to create “paradise on earth.”  We think he got pretty close.  It is mind boggling to imagine the wealth required to build this monument and incredible to imagine the lives of the privileged few who were born with the right to live here.

Everywhere you look is a picture, a jewel! It whets our appetites and increases our excitement as we journey to an Islamic heartland – Morocco.

It’s definitely a case of letting the photos do the talking!

    Hey folks, great to hear you are on the way down there. North Africa and such. Thanks for your delightful bull, we love him. Makes us remember the bulls balls on the side of a hill from somewhere to somewhere in Spain.
    Good to hear you are travelling south and many more adventures to come. Would love to be a fly on the wall (if in fact there are any in the bedouin tent!)
    If you need recommendations we are more than happy.
    You are doing way more than us though Fez we can say go to Riad Calife Those guys are gorgeous. Old Town. Great Folk. You would love them.
    Sold Carlton today so all happy here. Onward and onward.
    Love Leigh & Johnny W xo

    Very beautiful. I love the trees. I hope I don’t have to wait that long to create my “paradise on earth”. Worth the wait though. Be Well
