Evening stretches across Andalucia like a cool breeze, making its way below the trees into the circle of locals sipping wine, entranced by the notes of Spanish guitar. The audience sit in the grass while a Spaniard strums cords that float around the air, disappearing into the night, and hours pass and no one is stirring even though dawn is creeping along the horizon. The slow pace of life in southern Spain captures tourists and refuses to release them from the embrace of long, mid-afternoon lunches, dinners at ten, and nights out that turn into mornings out - all with a carefree smile and a no worries attitude.

The beaches on the coast can crawl with tourists during peak seasons, so find a road less travelled and explore small towns back from the ocean where Flamenco flourishes and guitar music drifts through the air at all hours. Order tapas at eleven and go to bed at seven am, no one is Andalucia will reprimand you for doing as you like and enjoying life to the fullest.

To the people that want to travel to Spain and especially Andalucía I give you a good tip. There is a great hostel where you can crash! In the White Nest Hostel in Granada, recently opened, you can find a young international group of like minded people, in fresh vibrant surroundings. You will have a great time to remember your entire life…..Based at the foot of the Alambra, the area is both central and historical.Full of tapas` bars really close and everywhere!!. I recommend you to stay in Hostels Granada and experience the life of Albayzin, Sacromonte and the heart of Granada itself.
