    We arrived at Sevilla where parking is almost non-existent! We got lucky finding a parking spot about 1.5 km away from our AirB&B. Well, one cannot say that one has been in Sevilla until you’ve been at Plaza España, which is the first thing we did... then finished the night with a Flamenco show.

    The last footprint from Spain! We spent the last evening in Sevilla at the Plaza de España. It is a very nice Plaza, especially in the evening when it is not so hot anymore.

    All in all the trip through Andalusia was really great. Tomorrow morning we will start the next road trip: From Sevilla via Faro, Lagos and Lissabon to Porto.

    Der letzte Footprint aus Spanien! Den letzten Abend haben wir am Plaza de España verbracht. Es ist ein wirklich beeindruckender Platz vor allem wenn alles langsam beleuchtet wird.

    Damit ist unsere Andalusien-Rundreise beendet. Morgen früh geht es aber gleich ins nächste Abenteuer. Zunächst mit dem Bus nach Faro und von dort mit dem Auto an der Küste entlang bis nach Porto. Das beste: Unser nächstes Hotel hat einen Pool!!!! ✌👋

    Plaza de Espana

    January 15 in Spain

    Nearby was Plaza de Espana with the remains of the 1929 international fair for Spanish-speaking countries. Along the exterior walls of the building were historic scenes and maps of each province in Spain done in ceramic tile. There has been more tile work here than the northern cities. I’m learning that tile will last forever. There was a flamenco dancer and guitarist busking. For all you Game of Throne fans, this site was used in the production of the series. John didn’t see anything that looked familiar to him and he’s watched the whole series but admits he’s not good with details. Notice the new wool scarf I bought him as he was complaining that his neck was cold because he got his hair cut too short. Where does he get his ideas from?! So this is his new European look with no baseball cap!

    Since John was quickly fading at this point, we ate out at a recommended tapas restaurant, which are everywhere. I learned that with so little new construction in Sevilla, the unemployed engineers and architects have invested in renovating old spaces to create new tapas bars and cafes.

    Sevilla, Spain

    July 24, 2017 in Spain

    Am zweiten Tag in Sevilla folgte das obligatorische Sightseeing. Mit KK tourten wir zur Cathedral of Seville, wo aber viel zu viele Leute anstanden, um in der Hitze zu warten. Deshalb ging es weiter zur Plaza de España, wo wir uns erstmal eine Verschnaufpause gönnten. Auf dem Rückweg zum Hostel gönnten wir uns Tapas und ein Bier.Read more

    Plaza de Espana

    July 4, 2017 in Spain

    Ein wirklich gelungener Pavillon, der anlässlich der Ibero-Amerkianischen Ausstellung 1929 gebaut wurde. Der spanische Pavillon sollte den neuen Kontinent Amerika "umarmen". Daher seine halbrunde Form, die nach Westen hin geöffnet ist. Auf diesem Platz wurden auch Teile des Star Wars Films Episode 2 gedreht.Read more
