The experience will most certainly be in the journey, rather than the destination, and it will be unique each time based upon each season, location, and recent weather patterns! We will begin in town by covering some basic safety information for walking in the woods and ensuring that all members of the team are equipped to handle a day of mushrooming!! We will then head out into the forest, with an specific location dependent upon the weather and time in the year (in Granada there are only mushrooms from October to December). There, we will enjoy the peace that the forest gives us, moving away from the stress and rapid rhythms of the city. I will share as many tips and tricks with you as I can for finding these sometimes elusive organisms as we wander around in the woods for a couple hours. Also, we will find the famous "Fairy Rings", the mythical mushrooms portals of the supernatural. Magical, don't you think? Back in Granada city centre, I will share some of my favorite places and plans to do in the city to live like a local :)
I am blogger of @viajareslou (viajareslou.com) I love nature and I have practiced hiking since 7 years ago. I want to meet you, have a wonderful time at the woods and also find some mushrooms to eat later! I have done this many times with 100+ people through another platform, I have given talks at schools about responsible tourism and I have also appeared in local and international newspapers for the work I am doing. We will spend a relaxing time at the countryside of Granada. I will also ask you questions about your country as I can't find some info and friendship like this on Google :) You will see the slow life of Granada, learn about it and have a lot of pictures (with my professional camera that I will bring with me) while we practice responsible tourism. It will be fantastic!
I will have plenty of water in the car for us to ensure that we do not go thirsty during the day!
I will transport us to whatever mushroom spots we will be exploring for the day!
I will take my professional camera with us to capture all the magical moments!
We will visit one of the many forests that Granada has. It will vary upon the weather and time in the year :)
