Mystery Tour Part 2

We returned from our mystery tour on Thursday. We started off in Cordoba then went to...


Granada to see the palaces & gardens of the Alhambra.


They were stunning...


Mr TH had arranged for my birthday evening to be spent on a night tour of the Moorish Palace. I was pretty speechless & totally overwhelmed...

What stunning images and yes it would be profoundly moving especially knowing the Alhambra has stood in all its glory since the C14. Moorish architecture is so exotic and exciting isn't it? And I love the contrast with our own very different and equally beautiful cultural heritage. The ingenuity of the human race is truly amazing.

Belated happy birthday, looks like a wonderful trip. Clever Mr TH!

BTW the word verification I've been asked to type in says makiest which seems rather apt - what with the firelighters and other making winter tutorials!

How very, very beautiful it is there. And what a thoughtful husband! Happy belated birthday.

It is one of the wonders of the world I am sure. Just got back from my second visit - could quite run to seeing it at night maybe next time.

I would love to go to Alhambra - this seems like a perfect time of year to go overseas, what a lovely birthday treat. Juliex
