Oct 10, 2004 - Seville, Spain

We walked around for about 45 min. after getting to Seville looking for the hotel in the guidebook. Hot and frustrated, we got lost in the barrio Santa Cruz and its winding streets and alleys. Finally we came across the Hotel Goya. It was more expensive but not a bad room and located just down the street from the cathedral. We spent the next two days roaming around the old part of the city and took a river cruise for about an hour to see the sights. Andy had been having stomach discomfort since about the beginning of the trip and also...

Sep 7, 2004 - Hola Espana!!!

Our day started off OK, but turned out to be very tiring, we arrived in Seville and followed the advise of the Lonley Planet to the Hostel. Upon arriving there we found out that the prices were really high, we tried a few other places but the same applied. So we ended up traipsing around Seville in 32 degree heat with our backpacks (we definatley need to work on lightening our load) The Alcazar is well worth the effort, it is impressive! Seville has a really nice feel to it so we were disappointed to be buying a ticket to Algeciras where...

Jul 16, 2004 - An annoying French, two Mormons, an angry American and two dorks from MIT...

The annoying French: Wednesday night I was planning on enjoying my last night in Granada, in my favorite hostel that I´d been to when I go placed in a room with a middle aged French woman. She got there Monday, just like me, and she was one of those people who I could tell that I didn´t like. Mostly because she stood in the kitchen while three of us were trying to cook dinner and was trying to read an unfolded, huge map of Granada. Can´t you do that somewhere else lady? Wednesday night I was dismayed to find out that I would be sleeping...

Jul 3, 2004 - Sevilla

Helena (a Swedish woman studying at the Institute) and I took the bus up to Sevilla. This was my first introduction into a true Spanish city (Malaga is fairly generic and filled with international students). We spent the morning and afternoon touring the sights including the Cathedral, Alcázar, and Gardens. And since it was blazing hot, many different cafés and stores for water. At the Hospital de la Caridad (a 17th century hospice ), I took a photo of a resident with his small bird. He immediately started speaking what passes for...

Jul 3, 2004 - Sevilla Time...

Well we got to Madrid at 11:00 in the morning on Friday. We decided to stay the night and found a nice hostal named la Isla about a block or two from El Prado museum. We went out for our first Tapas, and Cafe con Leche. Toured the city a little bit then crashed out about 23:00. Hit the road real early, and ran into lots of people still partying from the night before, I asked one guy "Long night" and he laughed and said "Short night" like he was still going at 7:00 in the morning. Any way we took the AVE (Spanish bullet train) to Sevilla...

Jun 15, 2004 - Granada to Seville, First day in Seville

We made a somewhat backtracking course westward to the city of Seville. We arrived, got situated and went to do some laundry. There was a big football match later that night between Holland and Germany. Me and Ryan went to an Irish Pub, (one of the only air conditioned drinking establishments in the city) to watch the match. While our tour guide Mark promised that the place would have enough room for our group he was only theoretically correct; he neglected to consider the other over 100 Germans and Dutch there for the match. Me and Ryan...

Jun 13, 2004 - Seville

I wrote this in my e-mail journal: And then to Seville. A truly beautiful city. I was very fortunate here to make a new friend who introduced me to her friends and in the four days at Seville I went out see a fantastic belly dancing show and got invited to two partys! Seville has a lot of foreign students who go there to study Spanish and Dance and this was very much in evidence when I went to see England v France. The Irish Pub (yes I'm afraid so) it was showing in was packed with a boiling multiligual throng. Irish Pubs: everywhere you...

Jun 6, 2004 - teresa- estillos grandiosos

I am amazed every day at the beauty around me. And the weather God has blessed us with. Now that i said that it will probably rain tomorrow but it is absolutely beautiful here. The more i see of spain the more i love it. Sevilla is no exception. After Agnes and I found our hostel yesterday we wondered to an outdoor market where people set up their booths full of fun things. From purses and scarfs to funky earrings and pretty hair clips. We got some suveniers and presents there. Then today we first went to Alcazar. This amazing castle. It...
