Long overlooked in favour of the world’s most popular tourist sites, the tiny state of Montenegro guards its wonderful natural charms quietly. This small country is bursting at the seams with beautiful scenery, including vast national parks, snow capped mountains and clear turquoise lakes.
The Alhambra, located in the Andalucían city of Granada, was once home to the ruling Emirs in Spain, and it was for them most of the Moorish-style additions were made. The flourishes, arches and curves inspired by Arabic writing influence every structure and space; Islamic architecture at its best.
Glimmering before me, water seems to dance along the path like fireflies fluttering in the evening twilight. Light forces its way through arches creating reflections of their casted shadows. I am caught in a trance, transfixed by this unique architecture surrounding me; Moorish influenced with splashes of Spanish styles throughout.
