See ya' Seville

SPAIN | Tuesday, 16 Jun 2015 | Views [269] | Comments [1]

Yesterday was my last day in Seville. I spent more time in Seville than any other city. Why? Because Seville was that great? Ah-no. Seville actually is beautiful. When  I was done with the hostel, where I spent 3 nights (which ended on a Thurs), ... Read more >

SPAIN | Monday, 15 Jun 2015 | Views [284]

Today I am checking out of this hotel and moving back to the hostel? Why, just one more night and off to Brussels. The hostel is cheaper, and they have  a computer where I can print out my boarding pass for tomorrow (on European discount carriers, ... Read more >

Sevillin n Chillin

SPAIN | Monday, 15 Jun 2015 | Views [298]

Yes. I am still here in Seville, (and running out of titles as you can see). Yesterday was an ok day-not too exciting. The first thing I did was search for a breakfast place with wifi. While a lot of local places have wifi, I usually just rely on ... Read more >

I am still here in Seville, and actually will be until Tuesday morning.  Yesterday wasn't a particulalry exciting day-I went to the train station to look at tickets for some other destinations for the day, like Cadiz-and took the long way. I ... Read more >

Hostels-where do they do it?

SPAIN | Friday, 12 Jun 2015 | Views [291]

Today I am in checking out of this hostel, and moving to a hotel. I actually like this hostel-the people are friendly, both those who work here and the other guests.  I have become somewhat acclimated to being in hostels-In England I purchased a ... Read more >

Seville fo real

SPAIN | Friday, 12 Jun 2015 | Views [317] | Comments [1]

This blog yesterday was short and sloppy-simply because as I mentioned, I attended the pub crawl the following evening (till morning), and woke up later then I thought. What I didn't say is that before I came here to Seville-I knew nothing about Seville.... Read more >

The Barber of Seville

SPAIN | Thursday, 11 Jun 2015 | Views [261]

Yesterday, I had a busy day. It was my first full day in Seville.  The hostel is actually ok. It has a pool, elevator, and a bar and kitchen on the roof. I went on three tours yesterday, first is a walking tour which was real cool, I learned ... Read more >


Sleeping on the Street

SPAIN | Wednesday, 10 Jun 2015 | Views [263]

Well, that didn't happen. But almost. Yesterday was my last day in Madrid. It was a good day, as I had an unused ticket for the Hop-on Hop-off bus, which i took to a part of town I hadn't visited yet. I saw the stadium, the Embassy section of town, ... Read more >

Just The Plane Truth

SPAIN | Tuesday, 9 Jun 2015 | Views [305]

Yesterday  morning wasn't too exciting. The other day, I booked a plane ticket to Seville for $43.00 (It was like 40 Euros so that seems like an appropriate conversion rate). With a bag it was about $55.00. I put my name down wrong on the ticket.... Read more >


Totally Bull

SPAIN | Monday, 8 Jun 2015 | Views [542]

Yesterday morning, I checked out of the hostel and into a hotel.  This was planned, and had nothing to do with the bedding fiasco. I have learned to change accomodations every 3 days or so, even in the same city, to beat monotany and also provide ... Read more >

Down Boy-the Sequel

SPAIN | Sunday, 7 Jun 2015 | Views [247]

I returned to the hostel at about  1:15 last night-I was tired and looking forward to going to bed. My only concern is there used to be a top blanket which now was missing. I have no idea where it went-not that I needed it-again it is in the 90's ... Read more >

Virgins and nature

SPAIN | Sunday, 7 Jun 2015 | Views [269]

Yesterday, I went to the Prado-the Art Museum in Madrid-I figured I would check out the dark art that Spanish Aritists did, and what we we're told about in the tour. There we're some paintings of Spanish Rulers and their families, but A LOT of paintings ... Read more >

Down Boy-literally

SPAIN | Saturday, 6 Jun 2015 | Views [302] | Comments [1]

Upon returning back to the hostel yesterday, I fell off the stairs to my bunk. I am in a 8 person room, and the bunks are taken by a first-come first-serve basis. The lower bunks are the first to go, and I had an upper bunk, which is quite inconvenient, ... Read more >


Down Boy

SPAIN | Saturday, 6 Jun 2015 | Views [246]

One of the cool parts of Madrid is called Plaza Mayor-a huge plaza where people meet, resturants and stores exist, and there is a lot of history. Plus various entertainers ply their trade here. My favorite is some weird, creepy looking dog-with two larges ... Read more >


Tour de Jour

SPAIN | Saturday, 6 Jun 2015 | Views [256]

Yesterday I went on three different tours: The first was a free walking tour of Madrid, at 10:00 am, which was quite interesting. I learned that just like Portugal, Spain was a dictatorship as well until the mid-70's. I also learned that all of the ... Read more >

Shake It Off

SPAIN | Friday, 5 Jun 2015 | Views [339]

Yesterday, I left Portugal. This was a little bit sad, as I loved Sintra, and I loved the Portugese language, although I can only say thank you. (Obrigado). It sounds like a combination of Spanish and Italian, and has a bit of a Romantic Sound. I ... Read more >


Movin on Up

PORTUGAL | Thursday, 4 Jun 2015 | Views [385]

I stayed in the same hotel in Lisbon for 6 nights. Now this hotel had pros and cons: First of all, the pros: (1) The avearage for all 6 nights was maybe $35 per night, for my own room with a bed, sink, etc. (2) The hotel was on a great street with cafes ... Read more >

First things first, I went to the Castillo de San Jorge in Lisbon. It is the largest Castle in Lisbon, practically looming over the skyline. I made a decision to see it before I left. The night before, (two nights ago), I did a recon mission to find ... Read more >
