Seville…time to eat

If you want old, cultured, feisty and amazing food Seville is the place to go.

Seville is the Capital of the Southern Andalusia’s region and not an obvious choice for me as a city without good hiking trails. However I am glad I listened to my Spanish friends as Seville has become one of my top choices for food around the world.

The way to explore Seville is just to wander and get lost taking in the stoned pathments, the golden yellow bricks and the tiny Calles. I’m not going to make any specific recommendations on places to visit in this article as their is a wealth of material.

However I will recommend that you hop to different food spots eating Tapas:

  • Bodega 2 de Mayo: Red Tuna with Oil
  • Casa Ricardo: Croquettes
  • La Flor De Toranzo-Montaditos: Roquefort and black pudding sandwich
  • Alvaro Peregil-Montaditode Pringa: Pork sandwich with the famous Seville Orange Wine
  • La Sal Calle Doncellas: The Chocolate Truffles are to die for.

My top tip is just have a dish or two in each place so you can eat all day whilst exploring the City.

Barcelona-first impressions take two

Hola Chicos its Barcelona time.

I have been in Barcelona now for three days, I will write a little guide on what to do whilst here shortly but wanted to give some initial thoughts.

Personally Barcelona is one of my favourite European cities. I have been finding it hard however to quantify why! On paper Barcelona in itself doesn’t have anything particularly unique, don’t get me wrong there are plenty of amazing sights but nothing that truly stands out. The people again are amazing but there are a couple of countries that I prefer. So I have come to the conclusion its the combination of the ethos, the cool architecture, the glorious food and chilled people.

So how best to experience Barcelona?

Daytime: Go to a high point like Parc de Montjuic find something in the distance that looks interesting and head in that direction. Barcelona is great city to get lost in and as you never know what’s round the corner.

Night time: Its all about food and fiesta. Two tips here don’t go to dinner before 9pm as places you would want to go e.g places local go to will be empty and make sure to strike up a conversation with locals to find all the best spots.
