The Feria de Abril...aka More colorful dresses than you can possibly imagine

Tuesday, 13 Jun 2017 | Views [283] | Comments [1]

For all of the pageantry of the bullfights, they pale relative to the color, glory, and scope of the Feria de Abril in Sevilla.  As early as March, girls in Maya’s class were asking her if she was going to the Feria and if she had a dress.... Read more >

Spring flowers and Bullfights

I am not quite sure what the rules or etiquette surrounding writing a travel journal after you get home, but I feel like I need to try to capture our last couple of weeks in Sevilla before the colors fade from my mind. In many ways the last few weeks ... Read more >

A Glorious Saturday in Sevilla...and gin and tonic for dessert

Tuesday, 14 Mar 2017 | Views [246] | Comments [1]

A few weeks ago I asked Beth whether she prefered living in Bologna or Sevilla. If she had to go back and pick only one, which city would she select for an experience like this? After some consideration she decided that she would pick Bologna. I think ... Read more >

Training for Semana Santa, bike paths, and other observations

Wednesday, 22 Feb 2017 | Views [365]

Okay, when I sat down to write about Jerez I had only intended to write a short vignette, but the story got away from me a bit. I apologize for that - I actually have a bunch of other things I want to relate, so I am going to try out using a series ... Read more >

Cathedrals, Copas, and Crosswalks

Friday, 10 Feb 2017 | Views [350]

The last week and a half have been mostly a journey toward some Spanish routine (aka figuring out how to eat on a Spanish schedule and still get Maya to school on time).  Rather than take a weekend trip last weekend, we decided to settle in here ... Read more >

Monday morning intrigue

Tuesday, 7 Feb 2017 | Views [320]

Okay, so don’t be alarmed if this entry in the travel journal sounds a little like an excerpt from a spy story; there will be a furtive stakeout, spying, intense planning, and an escape plan.  Just so you don’t worry or fret, I will ... Read more >
