SEVILLE, YOU BEAUTIFUL THING YOU!
Seville, has been a such a beautiful city, I am surprised that I do not hear more about it. The orange tree lined streets (which are some of the cleanest I have seen!), the endless good tapas bars, the tinton (forget the sangria!) and beautiful gardens are more than I could ask for.
I will of course have a heap of photos and video to share with you later, but we quickly shot this outfit this morning namely as I loved the light and Mario gave in to my begging! :)
TOP TWO TIPS FOR EUROPEAN CITY TRAVELS
I thought I would leave this post with two top tips for traveling in a European city:
As soon as you check in to your accommodation, ditch your gear, mark a few key points you want to check out on a google map, save it offline and then head out for a walk. You may not even refer to your google map, but I prefer to have this than a paper map. It looks like you are just checking your phone, not pulling out a giant map that alerts everyone that you are a tourist. There is no need to alert potential pick-pocketers.
Wandering around is the best way to see a new city- so good walking shoes are a must. If you are arriving toward the end of a day and feel up for it, an alternative is to go for a jog. Get into your activewear and pound the
pavement cobblestones. It is a fast way to see a lot, trust me!
Plan Ahead For Food
Ask for restaurant and cafe recommendations from a local, then get them to write down the name. This is the best way to suss out where to eat. It can save time when you find yourself hungry but surrounded by the tourist traps. A lot of those places will have photo menus in a variety of languages on display.
Otherwise try Yelp, or google a few travel/ food blogs for the best places to eat and the best dishes to try. Again, making notes when you have time at home before you travel is key. Do your research and thank yourself later.
