From Dublin, we flew to Spain's Malaga on Ryanair, the budget airline. The booking of flights were done my daughter who was in Dublin then.
Please remember to put little things like hand lotion, toothpaste etc in the clear plastic bag provided at the Dublin immigration rather than feel sorry later.
When we finally checked into it, we profusely apologised to the host as it was already past the hour. Anyway, we could only slept in a wink as we needed to check out very early before the time to buy the entrance tickets to Alhambra. Online tickets were already sold out and the ones available didn't include the The Palace. I advise you to buy your online tickets early so you don't have to queue . The all-inclusive ticket cost 14 euro which means all you can visit. Without the Nasrid Palace, you pay about 9 euro, I think..erm, do check the fee.
The checkout was funny. The host, whose sleep we had disturbed, grumbled and pointed at the checkout time notice. Again, we apologised and at the same time softly requested to keep our luggage in his office till 6 in the evening. We were not his favourite guests, obviously.. :)
When we arrived at Alhambra at 6.30 am, a few tourists were already at the ticket counter, perhaps spending their night there. The line grew and the counter opened at 8 am and we were advised join the first group to visit the Nasrid Palace.
Thank you for reading and visit me again.
