    Albufeira - > Sevilla

    July 16, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Nach ein paar schönen Tagen in Portugal ging es nach Sevilla. Der Bahnhof öffnet übrigens erst um 04:45 und wenn man davor schon auf seinen Zug warten möchte, ist man aufgeschmissen. Denn es gibt nur kalte Steinbänke auf der gegenüberliegenden Straßenseite auf denen man auf die Öffnung des Bahnhofs warten kann. Ansonsten waren wir bis vor Kurzem die einzigen Lebewesen hier, aber jetzt herrscht schon fast ein Trubel.
    Wir haben Sevilla etwas bei Nacht erkundet, aber unser nächstes Ziel ist eigentlich Madrid!

    Seville, Spain

    June 11, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    I found it!!!! The first photo shows you what it is.

    We had a great day in Seville today. Wow. What a place. The best thing of all is that that it only rains for 33 days a year.  The rest is sunshine!

    We started off the day with a visit to the Spanish Plaza which was built in 1929 for the world fair. Spectacular to say the least. It has a section for each of the 50 provinces in Spain with tiled tributes for each. Quite an amazing sight. Each of the countries who participated in the Fair built their displays in their architectural styles. Many are still being used as Embassies today.

    From here we went to Alcazar Palace which featured in several Game of Thrones scenes. Truly magnificent!! We were only able to visit 4 of the 48 patios which is somewhat disappointing but what we saw was magnificent. So ornate, so intricate and so breath taking. Wow!!

    From here we progressed to the Seville Cathedral. Omg!! It us the largest gothic cathedral in the world and is almost indescribable. Mere words are not enough. We were so fortunate that the Corpus Christi was still on display. It is made of solid silver and weigh 2.2 tonnes. I have never seen anything like it. We also saw the sarcophagus of Christopher Columbus which has travelled the world since his death. They say he has covered more distance in his coffin since his death than when he was alive including a considerable amount of time in the West Indies.

    This evening we left the city to a farm where bulls and horses are bred. The horses are Lipizzan and are such big, beautiful and majestic animals. Very friendly, very majestic and a great experience. We capped off the visit with a bbq dinner. Life can be tough sometimes.

    Sono rimasta folgorata da Siviglia, desidero tornarci da quel giorno, quando, ancora una volta, il rullino non si è attaccato e ho perso la miriade di foto che avevo fatto...
    Mi ricordo benissimo Piazza di Spagna ma anche i giardini. la Cattedrale...
    Una città stupenda!

    Seville, Spain

    June 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Another police escort from our hotel to the harbour. A person was caught hiding under the bus at 0130 but not sure how. One of the tour group received a phone call from the hotel who were trying to locate our driver.

    We go through the various laborious processes of leaving Morocco  and cruising to Spain to continue our adventures.

    I'm in need of a haircut so we are off to Seville to find a barber. Lolol. I crack myself up!!

    We stopped roadside for lunch and another amazing sight. Walk into a bar, all the food is laid out on the bar, select what you would like, add a drink, pay and walk off to eat.  Too bad if what would like you is at the other end of the bar. Good luck not getting your order lost in translation. All part of the experience. Love it!! 

    Can't  figure it out. In Tangier it was dark at 8pm. Cross the water a few miles north into Spain the next day and it is dark at 10pm. Surely that can't be right??? Five or six miles is a 2 hour difference between night and dark?

    We arrived at our hotel in Seville and had an hour to freshen before heading off on an optional tour. A dinner and show in one of the oldest theatres in Seville. Flamenco dancing. Spectacular to say the least. The dancers were phenomenal and had everyone on the edge of their seats. So energentic and captivating. I did both hamstrings watching them. 

    Tomorrow is going to be a great day for Game of Thrones fans. No spoiler alert but watch same bat time same bat channel...........
