Seville. Welcome to the hottest city in Spain


I must be honest and say that I really didn’t want to leave Seville. Being back in a lively city full of an exotic mix of characters, was having an overwhelming impact on my staying on. After so many days camping out in the countryside and living a very meagre and simple lifestyle, it was comfortable, exciting and above all great to make some connections with other people. I think in a way I have the best of both worlds with regards to my way of travelling around; I have the freedom and complete independence to travel wherever I want to go and at my own speed and yet when I get to a city, I can live just like a backpacker again so really, I’m not missing out on anything. Life is pretty good I guess.


I did an interesting free walking tour, hung out with some great people and just generally had a great time there. It's a magnificent city if you ever get the chance to go, just remember to bring some sunscreen!


After five day’s in Seville though, I felt it was time to go. At twenty Euro’s a night, even with a free dinner thrown in, I could hardly stay forever, after all there were mountains to tackle in due course.
