Pack Your Bags: Granada, Spain

This morning, I work up really early and headed out to Heathow. One almond croissant, three beverages, and two flights later- I landed in Granada, Spain for a work trip.

The weather is sunny, the skies are blue, my work friends are here... and the living is easy.

We hit the ground running with a huge lunch and then went to visit the Cathedral of Granada. It was spectacular, and very worth visiting- if you're in Granada. The contrast of light white walls and ceilings with the gold ornamentation is really striking. I've never seen another church quite like it.

This afternoon was spent catching up over coffee, hot chocolates and one giant plate of churros that cost €2 shaded by giant orange trees. 

And now? Well, we're headed to Arabic Baths for a little swim and hamman massage.

To be honest, if you're ever going to leave your family at home for the night... this might be the best way to do it. It's always a weird feeling to leave family, but you know... also nice to get some space to remind you how much you love them being around. (And because you don't have to share any churros with them either.)
