      8.30 Uhr Abholung mittels eines Großraumtaxis der Firma Metropolis zum Flughafen. Ohne Stau waren wir um 9.15 Uhr dort und stellten uns in die lange Schlange. Um 10.45 Uhr verließen wir die Sicherheitskontrolle. Der Flug startete mit 20 minütigen Verspätung um 12.50 Uhr. Ankunft nach einem ruhigen Flug um 15.30 Uhr. Treffen mit der Reisegruppe und dem Reiseführer Melf. Die Gruppe ist ein gefühltes Altersheim!
      Das Zimmer im Hotel Macia Sevilla Kubb ist recht ansprechend.

      Day 6 Seville City Tour

      November 4, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Early morning coffee delivery! The tour started at 9 am so I was able to wash my hair :). City tour on the bus 🚌 and walking to through some garden and to the restrooms at the hospital. Cari and I both bought jewelry from the same store but didn’t see each other until it was time to get back on the bus to Plaza de Espana which was built in 1920 for the 1929 exhibitions, along the wall by the canal are 48 alcoves with benches, one for each province of Spain, each with a relevant tableau and map, all designed on colourful azulejos (painted ceramic tiles). In a further regional reference, the four bridges represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain: Castille, Aragon, Navarre and Leon. Continuing the tour we went to the Holy Church Seville Cathedral. What an amazing cathedral. The largest gothic cathedral in the world. It started out at as Islamic mosque, than a Christian mosque and a gothic cathedral. Christopher Columbus had a statue built for his coffin in Cuba and it was 4 men holding a casket decorated to tell stories. The body was exhumed several years ago and only one finger was found in there. It was verified to be Christopher Columbus’s. He was sent to jail for the atrocities he committed in other countries, in the name of Christianity. When Queen Isabella sent him to jail he protested stating he didn’t do the killing, she stated he was responsible for his people. She was a bad ass! He died in jail. Over 23k square feet, mass is regularly held in the altar mayor, which houses gold statues floor to ceiling, and has a functioning organ. There were gold and silver replicas throughout. After the tour we went souvenir shopping and stopped for lunch. We had a bowl of wonderful tasting green olives , cameron fritters, and a salad with goat cheese, pecan, pasta and rocket (arugula) with sangria.
      Back on the bus, organized for tomorrow and had a Gorgonzola burger at Foster’s Hollywood, we arrived at 4:25 and they closed ad 4:30....phew just in time. Flamenco show at 6:30pm. It was a great show, there was a variety of performances with singing, (gypsy kings style ) individual dancers, men with tight asses! :) , short stories and partners. It was very colorful and enjoyable. It was better than the one I saw in Barcelona. I bought castanets to have at the house and play. In our room by 9:00pm to get ready for our last day !

      Day 5 Granada & Alhambra

      November 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      Nov 3 Granada
      Breakfast at hotel. On the bus by 9. A about an hours drive up curvy hills to the top to view the city and the Alh ambra ! Which means Red Castle. We had coffee in a little square which was so quaint. Continued walking on cobblestone streets while it was lightly raining. Drive down the hill and back up another hill to reach Alhambra. It was a huge Moorish Palace. It became a Christian palace. It had spectacular architecture. Carved wood and beautiful plaster designed walls and ceilings. Lovely gardens abound with ponds and flora. Lots of walking. Wether held up nicely. Back on bus around 2 headed for Seville. Only time for a meal at the Bus Service stop. We had the Burger special. Pretty good for a bus stop. Another 3-4 hours in the bus to arrive in Seville Melia Lebreros hotel at 7:30. Our new friend sue asked the front desk for dinner recommendations. We took a taxi to a wonderful restaurant El Rinconcillo. Tiny narrow cobblestones streets to get there. Went upstairs to our reserved table. Asked for a dirty martini. Sorry no cocktails. Ok, how about a martini, ok. Waiter brings a bottle of absolute vodka and a bottle of vermouth a glass with 2 huge ice cubes. Starts to pour the vodka, 3 inches, then he starts pouring in the vermouth! Poured so much, said ok that’s enough! The drink was horrible. Sue drank it, I changed to sangria. We ordered risotto with langostino as a shared appetizer. Delicious! Cristi & had lamb chops with patas and charred yummy mild peppers. Sue has the sea bass which she said was delish. Cathy has the Iberian steak. It came pretty rare. Sent it back and then it was really tasty. The bar called a cab for us. Got home by 11.Read more

      Day 1 Sevilla

      October 8, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

      Domenica 7 ottobre siamo partite da Verona in serata grazie al taxi Umberto e atterrare a Siviglia alle ore 23. Abbiamo ritirato la macchina e siamo andate nell'appartamento in affitto dalla host Sonia. Lunedì mattina, dopo una camminata veloce alla Lui di mezzoretta e una colazione a base di pane, pomodoro e formaggio siamo arrivate alla placa de Salvador, dove partiva un free tour che avevamo prenotato. Qui la nostra guida Manuel, casualmente italiana, ma residente a Siviglia ci ha mostrato e portato tra le viuzze di questa bellissima città. Con un tour molto interessante di tre ore abbiamo visto bellissimo scorci della città e scoperto la sua incredibile storia. Con Carmen e Susonna, donne rappresentative della città, così come con il re Pedro il Cruel o il buono (a seconda dei punti di vista), con il rebus "non ci ha mai abbandonati" simbolo rappresentativo di Siviglia, abbiamo scoperto molti anedotti e storie della città. Abbiamo visto da fuori anche la cattedrale, la giralda, l'alcazar e altre famose opere. Nel pomeriggio dopo una lunga siesta per pranzo squagliandoci al sole, abbiamo visitato placa de Espana, la torre dell'oro e il quartiere di Triana. Non ci siamo nemmeno fatte mancare un pochino di shopping per poi arrivare alle colonne di Ercole e cenare nel quartiere della macarena, al dos tapas, un posticino molto buono e carino. Stanche, ma felici siamo tornate a casa. Domani ripartiamo in direzione di Cordoba. Purtroppo non siamo riuscite ad entrare nell'alcazar, ma come dice Manuel, Siviglia ha conquistato tutti i suoi conquistatori e oggi ha conquistato pure noi :).Read more
