Losing your heart to Andalucía: Granada, Sevilla & Córdoba

Granada Granada is situated at the feet of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and was under Arabic rule for centuries before it became Spanish again.

What you find in the journey, is much more than the destination

Exactly five years ago today, I wanted to go from the location of my one-month summer job in Alicante (Spain) to join my family on holiday in Olhão, the most southern point of Portugal.

What is your passion? Every achievement starts with a decision to try, and along the way, with the perseverance to keep going

“If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul”*

It has been built by layers upon layers of history and different peoples and cultures meeting in the capital that today is the only one spread over two continents: Europe & Asia.
