Seville, Spain 

From Lagos we caught the bus across the border into Spain. We spent three nights in Seville which was a perfect amount of time. When we arrived everything was shut up and quite a ghost town. Turns out Sevillians are big on their siestas, the whole town shuts down from 2pm-7pm. 

Seville is home of the tapas but with over 3000 tapa bars in the city there are a lot of duds so you need to research. Our first lunch was a disaster, the menu was in Spanish and we though we ordered prawn fritters but we got served deep fried fish eggs, so so foul. We got big into making our own breakfast and lunch at our air bnb but for dinner once we found a few places we liked we just kept returning to them. 

Temperatures were extremely high – about 39 degrees during the day which made it hard to do much. Air con is a necessity. 

View from the roof of our air BnB air BnB courtyard. Such a cute place. We got ice cream and wandered the parque Maria Luisa which is next to the plaza plaza De Espania 

La Chunga was the best little local restaurant we found. We went back a couple of times for dinner. Dessert here was also amazing. 

The Royal Alcazar was beautiful to walk around. Go in the morning to avoid the heat and the lines.
