ISA Student Blog Reasons why I fell in love with Granada Study Abroad

I had never heard of it Granada until a week-long series of characters from the universe told me to go there. As a result, I changed a foreign destination from Brisbane, Australia, to Granada, Spain, at the last minute. As usual, the universe did not disappoint. This blog doesn’t give almost all the reasons why I loved Granada, but it will cover a few. I particularly liked the abundance of vegan restaurants, great fashion, extremely inexpensive food and drinks, tapas culture and everything that I have provided from ISA is within walking distance.

One thing i loved Granada was that it wasn’t as touristy as other cities in Spain. The only main tourist attraction is the Alhambra, which means that tourists, even if they do come, will most likely only stay a day or two. Due to the lack of tourism, I was forced to integrate into the daily life of a real local rather than the American version of Spanish life. Almost no one in the city spoke English, which helped me learn more Spanish.

Another aspect of Granada that I loved was his calm. I get scared easily, especially in crowds. I was relieved to find that the streets of Granada were not overcrowded, even in the “inner cities”. There was almost never an overwhelming number of people. The city was relaxed, relaxed and fairly quiet, which was perfect for someone like me who enjoys a peaceful environment. I enjoyed walking around without a goal to watch and admire the historic architecture. It was extremely safe too; I was warned of pickpockets by a million people when I announced that I was going to Spain, but I never had any problems in Granada. Not that I would recommend it, but I could leave my phone and handbag on a table without worrying about someone taking them. I even accidentally left my purse in the bathroom of a restaurant and someone brought it out to me with everything that’s left in it. I saw a dramatic pickpocketing attempt while visiting Barcelona and I just couldn’t imagine it happening in Granada. (However, keep an eye on your belongings no matter how safe they are.)

I also fell in love with the people of Granada. The local ISA staff were so nice and available for all needs, even organized my trip to the hospital and made sure I had everything I needed when I got really sick. When I knew that they were always ready to help me, I felt very cared for. I found everyone in Granada very warm. I am a creature of habit, so I went to the same cafes, restaurants and cafes almost every day. The workers there and I met so that they would know my order as soon as I came in. When I created this feeling of connection with them, I felt more like I was in Granada. However, it also made it more difficult to walk. On our last day, my friends and I visited all of our regular places to say goodbye to our favorite restaurants. When the staff heard that it was our last day, they were sad to see us go and gave us our usual orders for free. It was the bitterest day.

Ultimately, Granada stole my heart. I can’t wait to return one day and feel the memories flow back. Have you ever been to a place where you felt at home?
