This is a travel blog isn’t it? About a guy that actually travels to places? All this talk of where I ‘want’ to go is cute and all, but I thought it might be fun to actually talk about one of the trips I did recently (well, last November).
Last autumn I wanted to get away but nowhere too far and nowhere cold. So I cleverly decided to spend a few days in southern Spain by myself. I hadn’t travelled solo much in the preceding years which was a damn shame – I’d almost forgotten how much fun it was.
I flew to Seville, stayed there for about four days, then headed to Granada for three days. Because the trip was a little while ago, I’ll keep this brief and tell the story of my time there in pictures instead!
I had the best time in Seville. What’s not really pictured are all the friends I made in the hostel, including people from Alaska, Lithuania, Kazakhstan and South America; an interesting bunch for sure. I was super hungover a lot of the time, spending many a sunny gorgeous day inside the hostel common room with the Canadian and Aussie girls moaning about how gross we felt.
Granada proved to be a great destination as well, a smaller, quieter version of Seville. The Alhambra there as well as the Alcázar of Seville were undeniably some of the most impressive structures I’d ever visited. I had a great time with the other travellers I met, had some good food and enjoyed the 20 degree heat. I’d go back in a heartbeat to the south of Spain and I recommend it to people all the time!
