Exciting News!


February 26, 2013 by ebostick1212

In just a few days, I will be leaving for my first real trip since moving here.  I’ve been jealously stalking other auxiliar’s Facebook feeds, drooling over all the weekend excursion photos.  However, many of these auxiliars had jobs before coming here, or parents who send money, or are willing to spend every cent of their minute stipend…none of these situations pertain to me.  I did get some money over Christmas, that I have been guarding like Gollum and his prized ring.  So now, I’ve scrupulously gathered up all of my pennies, and decided to make a go of traveling a bit.

Where am I headed, you ask?

(and yes, it is obligatory for you to read this as if Oprah were sending you on an all expenses paid vacation there.)


For the upcoming long weekend, I will be wandering the narrow streets of the Albaicín, basking in the beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and exploring the world famous Alhambra.  Oh, and the free(ish) tapas…can’t forget those!

So, check back next week for a recount of my adventures!

    Oh my goodness I am SO excited for you. Like, abnormally excited. Give Granada my love and enjoy yourself. I just wrote a post on the Albaicin, if you’re interested in my take before you head off. Enjoy the free tapas and have fun, chica!
