Jun 1, 2015 - Sevilla

Wow it feels like summer today - I am loving the hot 36c temperature everyone else not so much and all of us are missing our pool from lagos. But we are here to see Sevilla. Here is Georgie's Diary for today Today we walked around Sevilla. First we went to this giant Catherdal. It was very gothic. We went to the Plaza De Espana. It had astonishing tiles of every city in Spain. There was a small river that went under these pretty bridges. We ate lunch and then walked to the Museo del Baile Flamenco, it wasn't as interesting as I thought it...

Nov 1, 2013 - Halloween in Cádiz

So Halloween was yesterday. After spinning on Monday I went to the market. As you can see from the pictures, even the fish get dressed up on Halloween in Cádiz. Very strange. I know haha. On Tuesday, one of the kids I tutor in English told me that on Halloween people throw eggs in the streets, so I was looking forward to that all week, but it only stank a little! And I only stepped in one! Yum. Wednesday at school we had another intercambio with the UCA students. We got in groups with friends we made at the first one and did a pumpkin...

Oct 27, 2013 - Sevilla

First of all (did I already say this??) I officially am a student resident of Spain! I have the card to prove it :) This week at school started off horribly with a pretty difficult Spanish literature test and a 40 min group presentation about health and health care in Spain for my civilization class.....on the same day. After that, though, the week was essentially over. This week there were education strikes all over Spain so Thursday classes were cancelled for us, even though the UCA kids were there only Monday and Tuesday I think....

Jan 5, 2013 - A Day in Sevilla Spain

Today is in Sevilla and it is a beautiful town. It has that old Spanish feel to it for sure. We are staying in the old part of town with the cobblestone streets and little narrow roads going here and there. The first stop today is the bakery that has chocolate croissants. It will be the first but not last chocolate croissant of the trip but not the last I'm sure since we are going to France still. We the crossed the street and got some Starbucks it is all good. The Cathedral is now open so inside we go. OMG what a site the place was huge...

Jan 4, 2013 - Must be day 3 here. Granada at night on to Sevilla

Last night we didn't make it to the Flamenco dancers but instead found a great place right by our hotel to see the Alhambra at night. We then found a restaurant/bar that had tables on the roof overlooking the Alhambra it was beautiful. I put a picture of that on today's even though it happened yesterday. Today we got up had breakfast at our hotel and got the car out of the garage and left Granada. We drove through hills of olive orchards and other crops it was a lovely drive. We came upon a small town of Carmona and had some sangria and...

Mar 17, 2012 - Y Sevilla

Sevilla!!!! The weekend after Nerja our program took us on a weekend overnight trip to the capitol of Andalucía: Sevilla. We left bright and early Saturday morning, and our first stop was Itálica: an old Roman city with lots of really cool Roman ruins. After about an hour tour we all got back on the bus and headed straight to lunch (thankfully! we were all extremely hungry and just slightly cranky). The last 15 minutes of a tour with 25 hungry college students is not very pleasant... We had a group lunch at a restaurant called El Cabildo...

Oct 5, 2011 - Sevilla

Today I bought another book - Spain has the most convoluted history. We walked through the gardens by the Alcazar to get to the older part of town and the Cathedral. There was a monument for Christopher Columbus in the middle of the garden. He seems to be everywhere. There is a tomb in the Cathedral floor but they moved him to another chapel just a few feet away. Maybe he'll get to stay there. This Cathedral like a lot of the ones I'm Spain was originally a mosque. Therefore the architecture is a mixture of styles. After a delightful lunch...

Jul 13, 2011 - Sevilla

Tomorrow night I am going to try to take the bus to Lisboa, Portugal. But for tonight I am still in Spain. My hostel has air con. I sleep happily every night. In my dorm is a Czech student doing research on the Spanish economic crisis, and a Polish flamenco dancer and her mother. It is quite an interesting room. They are some of the nicer roommates I have had. I am very haapy to say that this is going to be my last night in a dorm for a while. More often than not I end up with really ruder roommates, and after 3.5 months almost I have...

Jun 28, 2011 - Sevilla, Monday, 6/27

We take the #3 bus back to the train station, heading for Sevilla, a quick 30 minute ride at a cost of 17€ each. If Cordoba was hot, hot, hot, Sevilla is hot, hot, hotter. We got in around 4:00 and decided to take a bus into town rather than a taxi. At this point, we rather like the challenge of navigating. Mirta reads the map and I read the picture icons - a great pair. This is the hottest part of the day - 42 C - 104 F, 95 UB (under brim of my hat)! We stopped in a great cafe and had a refreshing drink, Tree of Life (red wine and fizzy...

Oct 11, 2010 - Donana wetlands south of Seville

Today we went to the Donana wetland area. As we wanted a quiet day to recover, we wanted to just take the morning there, and so visited the area closest to Seville. This area was in an agricultural area on the edge of Donana...and in the many rice paddys we saw lots of white storks, two different egrets...the purple heron, lots of different seagulls. We watched the men in tractors plowing up the flooded fields with thousands of birds milling around in a frenzy of activity. We found a wetland sanctuary, which was closed. we did peek under...

Oct 8, 2010 - Sevilla

Sevilla for 4 nights....just as well. The driving has been a bit onerous for the past 3-4 days, and I need a break. We arrive on the 8th in the late morning, and could be booked in but to a smoking room....not on your nellie we say, so we park the car and catch a taxi to the Museo de Bellas Artes...nominated (by themselves, maybe) as the second best art museum in Spain after the Prado....the artists amongst us (guess who) say this is a very well presented offering, and that the Murillos (look it up if you don't already know) are wonderful....

Nov 13, 2009 - The Sun in the South of Spain

I realize it has been a while since I have written an entry. But I have spent the last three weekends away from beautiful Barcelona. First of which was the wonderful and extremely relaxing city of Sevilla, Spain. This is my first over night stay in another Spanish city besides Barcelona. Sevilla is different in every single way. The language is different (no Catalan), there’s no metro system, it’s so much quieter, the buildings have an Arab touch, there’s bull fighting and flamingo dancing, and every street is a tiny winding maze. The whole...
