Our Last Days in Spain: A Visit to Granada and Nerja

Sarah Behm - Salamanca chaperone

Adios, España!

We are flying home today, but first, a recap of the amazing experiences we’ve shared these past few days…

Flamenco and La Alhambra

Granada was definitely a highlight of the week, and on Monday night, we enjoyed a delicious dinner with a spectacular view of La Alhambra, one of the most-visited sites in Spain! After dinner, we turned the corner to enjoy a flamenco show in one of the original caves of Granada! The next morning, we woke up early for a guided tour of La Alhambra. We learned about hidden symbols, and the long history of this incredible place. Then we headed off to the bus station to move onto our next city, Nerja!

Kayaking in Nerja

Our first adventure in Nerja was heading out to the Caves of Nerja, located above the city. After a great dinner, we rested for our next day of kayaking. We headed to another beach to go kayaking along the Mediterranean coast, and even entered a small cave, weaving our way through unique rock formations until we came to a waterfall!

After kayaking, we headed back to rest, pack, and do our last bit of shopping!

Spain, it’s been wonderful!

    Hi Sara,

    So good to have my boy Dylan back home. Just wanted to thank you for making this trip so great for him and the rest of the kids. Dylan had so many good things to say about you. He really thought you were the most amazing chaperone and loved how friendly and outgoing you were. I can’t wait to hear all the stories but again I thank you for taking care of him and ensuring that this ex perience will stay with him for many years to come. We will be in SF on August 6 – 9 and would love to meet up and bring you out for lunch. Loved the blog and all the pics – Dylan the last man standing!!

    • Hi Trish,

      I apologize for the late reply! It has been hectic getting back into the real world. Dylan was a delight to be around during the summer. He brought a light of positivity, flexibility, and enthusiasm to the group that was contagious! He was also exceptionally talented at learning new things (bull fighting techniques, soccer, and kayaking!)

      This is probably too last minute, but I will actually be around tomorrow in San Francisco during the lunch time, but otherwise I’m fairly busy with work during the other days that you are in town. My email is sebehm@yahoo.com. Contact me there if you have a last minute window of opportunity tomorrow!

      I hope you enjoy San Francisco!

      Hasta luego, Sarah
