One of the things I love the most about Europe is how close all the countries are and how easily you can travel around once you’re there! After visiting Portugal again, (Portugal post coming soon!) I decided to take a road trip to Seville Spain for a night of Spanish culture… Sangria included!
Â A quick two hour drive, and I arrived in the beautiful city of Seville! My hotel, Las Casas de El Arenal, was right in the centre of the city and within walking distance to all the sights and the amazing nightlife! The hotel itself was absolutely adorable with the cutest little Spanish details and an amazing rooftop terrace! The rooms were lovely and modern (though still authentically Spanish) and theÂ staff was beyond nice and extremely helpful!
After checking in, I decided to walk around and explore the sights. I checked out the cathedral and the castle but what I loved the most was the people watching! The streets were bustling, and I loved looking at what every one was wearing. I was super impressed by how fashionable everyone was! I wore my brightest colours to try and fit in with all the Spanish atmosphere!
After a quick siesta, I headed out for two things Spain is known for, tapas and sangria, and I wasn’t disappointed! The streets were lined with little restaurants with great patios and thereÂ were street performers everywhere! Â YouÂ could easily sit outside and watch all the liveliness around you for hours and hours!
The next day, I decided to explore the Plaza de EspaÃ±a, which is easily the most beautiful and impressive sight to see in Seville. The plaza itself is magnificent but if you have the time to walk the grounds, there are hidden delights at every corner.
I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned yet how HOT it was! Every year I say I’m not going to visit Europe in the summer because it’s way too hot and way too busy and every year it draws me back! Thank goodness for the vendors selling these adorable fans!
Before I knew it, the quick trip was over and it was time to head back to the Algarve! Thanks for the sweet memories Seville!
