9th Feb 2018 - 12th Feb 2018
Seville & Granada

Just uploading a few photos here, from a very chilled out weekend in Seville, the start of a series of trips to make the most of Europe and its crazily cheap budget flights...

While here, took the opportunity to visit the Seville Cathedral and beautiful Arabian palace, the Alcazar, using  highly recommended front of line entry to beat the enormous queues. This was a perfect time to visit, in pleasant 19 degree sunshine (in summer it is well into the 40s and ridiculously overcrowded). Seville is ideal for a weekend - you can walk around all the sights in a day, with no need for buses or any other transport, and  it seems surpisingly cheap for accomodation and food.

This visit was broken up with a small-ish detour to Granada, to visit a place on many bucket lists: the ancient Alhambra palace. Set against a backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, this is a spectacular setting and well worth a guided tour to see the interior. Having said that, I probably found Seville's Alcazar  just as pretty, if not more - but worth doing both.

With a few spare hours to fill  before heading to the airport,and a small rain shower to avoid, I discovered that the famous 'Bodies' exhibit was in Seville, and ducked out of the rain. This was pretty cool, as they were running a special animals version of the  exhibit, complete with gorilla, giraffe, and elephant amongst others.

Feeling very content, time to continue some European explorations - next time, 3 new countries will be added to my map...



Next: Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Serbia
Previous: Niagra Falls, Atlantic City, Philadelphia..& New York, again...
