Travel

Granada to see the Alhambra


Unlike Cordoba, Granada feels like a big city which probably has a heart but we did not go looking for it.  We only had 1.25 days and the Alhambra was our destination.

 

Cordoba

Our hotel was part of the old wall which once surrounded the old town of Cordoba and within easy walking distance to La Mezquita.

Madrid in 24 hours

With just 24 hours in Madrid we managed to visit two museums and find 3 great places to eat.

Peru - Sacred Valley

We hired a driver and guide to take us to Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley.  Along the way we stopped at Chinchero, Morarys and Salina

 

Koh Chang

After our action packed week in Chiang Mai, we went to the Island of Koh Chang which is just a few hours from Bangkok near the Cambodian border in the province of Trat.

Loy Krathong or Yee Peng Festival

First a bit about the festival…the festival in Thailand is held on the night of the 12th full moon of the year which is at the end of October to the middle of November – dates depend on the date of the full moon each year.

Chaing Mai Sunday Markets

Every Sunday the street outside our accommodation (3SIS vocation lodge) turned into a large colourful market.

Thai Elephant House Trek

We tried to choose an elephant day trek where the elephants were treated well. We choose the Thai Elephant House as we thought the elephants would get something out of the day as well as us and you are one on one with the elephants.
