Beautiful day in Granada :) Sacromonte, Albaicin, Mirador de San Cristobal and San Miguel

Have you ever been to Granada? As I live there believe me that here is plenty of beautiful things to see and always something to do. I wrote an article about my visit to Alhambra and now I would like to share with you one of my days in the city, so you may imagine how is it to live here.

It was one of many sunny days, so I decided to do some sport. I put on my running shoes and set off from Cerillo de Maracena neighbourhood. I run nort east through small streets and hills. I love to see buildings in different parts of the city. I don’t know how it’s possible, but they are always stunning. Have a look at some pictures!

I stopped for a while on Mirador de San Cristobal which is not too far and it is possible to admire most of the city. Here is the photo, so you can imagine, but of course it is better to be there and feel it!

I continued to jog uphill, because in Sacromonte neighbourhood is a church on top of the mountain. It is much higher point, so the view is much better as well. Climb is absolutely worth the effort, to see all the city and Alhambra. On the way down you may stop in some of the bars to have some delicious food or maybe a drink with tapas? Whatever you fancy, because food in that city is delicious and you can’t miss it.

I like a lot to climb on top and just look down at the city, look up at the blue sky and look around on the mountains of Sierra Nevada. It makes me very realxed and I feel better. try it. Believe me not everyone is so lucky, to have a short walk and be in the place where all surrounding area is below your feet. If you feel lazy, or just don’t have enough time, you may take a bus to get there. I hope that my pictures convince you to be in Granada 🙂

Chopin and Modlin airport in Warsaw. My personal experience.

Hello everyone 🙂 Nice that you came back to read my blog about my experiences from different periods of my life. As I fly quite often – on average one flight per month – I have quite big experience from airports all over the world. I will write about ones from Warsaw airports as there I always feel strange and strange things happen to me.

This one is located in the city centre  of Warsaw. I fly from here sometimes. Once I had a transfer here. I had half empty small jar of Nutella in my hand luggage. I love chocolate and always try to carry some on me. As I passed security on other European airport noone even told me to take it out of the bag. On Chopin airport they did something unbelievable. They scanned my hand luggage, told me to open it, took out and opened my Nutella. I was shocked! I always have chocolate in my hand luggage and those people told me I would need to leave it. I had a short argument with all people working by the scanners, but it didn’t change anything. I needed to go to catch my plane and leave delicious Nutella behind.

Modlin airport

Just fed days ago I flew from Modlin airport to Malaga. I haven’t been living in Poland for 7 years now and I may look different for them, because always they check me very carefully and look at me suspiciously. Once even were checking seams in my jeans to check if something is hidden there. This time I took off my shoes and removed all metal objects except my necklace which was a stone hanging on a small piece of metal. The machine beeped, i was routinely searched and later all my things, I mean clothes on me and thing which came through x-ray can like my jacket and my belongings inside my hand luggage were scanned by some detector – probably metal.

To sum up, I love to fly to distant different places, but I think people in Poland check me always as carefully as possible which is usually annoying. They don’t even smile.
