30 May Seville, Spain
Bienvenido a Espana chicas (I’m so sorry it has to be virtually)! As some of you may know, this summer I’m interning for a fashion company called BraveSoul in Madrid, Spain. That being said I work during the day Monday-Friday and have the weekends to travel. Upon request, on the travel section of our blog I’m going to take you through the cities I visit starting with my first weekend trip to Seville, Spain.
Let me just start by saying I had quite an experience trying to get to Seville. My friends and I decided to save some money and get there by taking Blah Blah Car. If you haven’t heard of the company it’s essentially very similar to Uber but for long distance trips and very cheap prices. We got a round trip ticket for about 50 Euros which is pretty insane considering we booked our trip the night before and were traveling 4 hours across the country. The company and the idea behind Blah Blah car is wonderful, but unfortunately our driver ruined our experience. He showed up to our meeting place in Madrid over three hours late and dropped us off at the wrong location at our final destination. The point being— definitely try Blah Blah car for a cheap trip while in Europe, but check the driver’s ratings before booking and make sure to communicate exactly where you’re going to the driver.
5 hours of traveling later, we finally arrived in Seville. It was absolutely well worth the wait. Seville is a gorgeous town in Southern Spain with a pretty river running through the center. I didn’t get to spend too much time in this location so I didn’t get to do all of these things but here are some suggestions:
1. Skip the bus tours, rent a bike, & ride around the city.
2. If you’re feeling adventurous take a ride in a hot air balloon. Gloobo has great ratings and offers a half day ride for 175 Euro.
3. Check out the more historical sites the city is rich with them. If you’re into that kind of thing this place is perfect for you. Alcazar of Seville is my favorite, but type in “things to do in Seville” into google and you’ll get the whole list.
4. Shop on the street “Calle Sierpes”
5. Think about doing an olive oil tour and tasting at Sierra de Arecena.
6. Walk across the main city bridge to Triana. There is a cute market to visit and you can grab a bite to eat with a pretty view of the water.
7.Hop on a boat or take a kayak out on the Guadalquivir River.
8. At night grab a drink at Bar Panoramico La Terrazzo de EME to get a beautiful view of the city and afterwards stop into the bar MKC. We had a great time there and the drinks were cheap. Once you’re at MKC you’ll be in a great area for other bars. Just a heads up to the younger readers some of the bars are 26+.
