Travel and Adventure Journal

I wanted a place to journal all my travels and adventures around the world. I always enjoy going back and reflecting on my past travels and getting to relive them through my words and photos.

Walking all over Seville

Day 160

I didn't have any plans again today when I woke up. I had breakfast then worked for a while before lunch. I ran out to the supermarket to get some more food for the next few days here in Seville then came back and had lunch.

I felt like I needed to get out of the hostel so I walked through the Parque de Maria Luisa which is a huge park near the Plaza de Espana. There are plants from all over the world here as well as fountains and buildings that were built for the 1929 expo. The park was really nice even in the winter so I can only imagine how nice it would be when it's warmer out.

A group of people from the hostel were planning on doing the afternoon walking tour so I decided to go with them. This tour covered the old Jewish quarter and more history of the city. The guide was really knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy what he was doing. I'm going to have to head into the Jewish Quarter again later in the week and get lost. The streets are extremely small and twist and turn all over the place. It's a great area to walk around and get lost in.

The hostel made a really good African dish called Bobotie. It's a minced meat and egg dish served with veggies and rice. I had that and talked with some other travelers for a while. The hostel is kinda slow this week which is nice. Some people just showed up late and checked into my room so hopefully they're not too loud. The other people in the room are all really quiet which is good.
