Sue and I spent 4 days over a weekend together visiting her friend in Seville, Spain. This was a spur of the moment decision from me as I thought, “why not treat myself?”. I then got myself a new job and thought my decision in the end was a good choice. It meant I was able to relax before starting work and enjoy lovely weather compared to England.
Her friend Enrique and his girlfriend Lola took us around the beautiful city. We visited Italica, the Roman city ruins that was a mix of Gladiators and a jungle scene from movies. I’d be surprised if it wasn’t used as a filming location.
The art gallery was smaller than that in London but packed many paintings covering the walls that depicted the story of Christianity, as it was a Christian city.
We also went to the royal palace on the day that the king deaomwthing the throne; which was a coincidence. Enrique’s cousin Marissa gave a professional tour of the grounds and even taught us some history about Christopher Columbus! Of only history at school was made interesting.
Delicious food and ice cream was consumed across the 3 nights we stayed. Tapas and drinks in Spain are so much more value for money. I absolutely loved it!
There was also a sandy beach (you’d never find a nice one in England) around an hour away from Seville. We managed to take a lot of lovely scenic photos here and also leave some sand drawings ^^
On our last night, we went to watch flamenco dancing, which then led onto a mini salsa dance class and soon after karaoke. Hehe. T’was a great night with many wonderful new friends met.
Have you been to Spain? Would you visit the country?
