The Albayzin


Over half term, a friend and I went to stay with another friend in Granada, Spain. We were only there for a short time but it was absolutely amazing! The Albayzin, which is the old Muslim quarter of the city, is the most incredible place, full of winding cobbled streets and white-washed houses all huddled together and crowding the tiny lanes. As this section of the city is built up the side of a hill, some of streets become steps. We spent hours just strolling the streets (and in my case, taking pictures) as it was one of those places that is absolutely picture-perfect, even in real life. It's like stepping back in time. Apart from moped-dodging which keeps you alert. Especially as they are undaunted by flights of steps.

I took plenty of pictures and will be scrapping a stack of them over the next few weeks.

P.S. Anyone else doing Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers? Or re-doing?

P.P.S. Made giant chocolate chip cookies today and have to recipe share because they're amazing: Linkeroo.

  1. It certainly looks and sounds like a lovley place to visit. I have never been to Spain, but I do have an ambition to visit Barcelona, Granada and Andalucia some day.
    Glad you had a lovely time in half-term; it was a long first half of term this year, so I bet you were as glad to have a break as we were.

  2. I love the way you journal on your layouts - I can never think of what to say but it's really inspirational to look at the stories you've written and how you've included them in your layout! lush
