Cruzcampo Beer in Seville

Two Months of Winter Sun in Seville


I haven’t updated this blog in quite some time, but I have been living in Seville for the last couple of months and it has been a busy time for me. To keep my living expenses to a minimum I did some volunteer work in a hostel in exchange for free accommodation. I also had to keep on top of my article writing, and hostels are busy places, so it was really hard to stick to a routine and remain productive.

I’m heading for Barcelona tomorrow, and I’ll be renting a room, so I should find it easier to stick to my writing schedule.

I enjoyed my time in Seville. It’s a beautiful city and a fantastic place to go if you want to avoid all that snow, rain, and teeth-chattering cold that is the norm for winter in so many other European countries. It’s an incredible feeling to sit drinking a nice, cold beer outside a bar, and feel the sun on your face, when you’ve spent most of your winters in the UK, wearing a hat and gloves instead of a summer shirt.

I tend not to do many of the things tourists do, so there are many things I didn’t see but, even before I went to Seville, I wanted to see the Metropol Parasol, so I made a point of doings so. Apparently its the largest man-made wooden construction in the world.

It looks pretty good from below:

And if you take the lift to the top the view is fantastic:

You can see the cathedral in the last picture. its very important in Seville. In fact, it’s so important there is law against building anything that is higher than it.
