I’ve already publicly stated my newfound, deep love for Seville. But looking back on my past four weeks of learning Spanish there, I realize my love went even deeper. I spent so many of my days in Seville walking and wandering the streets, between orange trees and over cobble-stoned paths. If you missed my live updates on my Tumblr about Seville, here’s my Instagram travel diary from my four weeks in Spain.
An Instagram Travel Diary
Instagram has become my number one way of journaling a trip. Traveling with my iPhone4, I pretty much take photos all the time — even when I’m not traveling! My phone is full of photos of food, of strangers I met in bars, of doors and of walls. There are plenty of bad photos in-between, but I also make a habit of trying to capture as much as possible on my Instagram. Here’s a small sample from my four weeks in Seville…
In the city center, I spent a lot of time at Plaza Nueva because it was just around the corner from my language school. Just a bit of winter sunshine in Seville! ❤
Your typical iconic photo for Seville: the Cathedral in the distance and the local orange trees in the foreground. Those trees are everywhere!
The lovely Metropol Parasol is the world’s largest wooden structure, and somewhat affectionately called the “mushrooms” by Sevillanos
There was quite a bit of graffiti and street art in Seville – definitely a colorful town!
Seville, you are magic <3
I must have eaten one gazillion croquettes while in Seville. My go-to tapas choice!
Plaza España’s strange but beautiful mosaics
Aliens in Seville? No, this is just the Expo I discovered when wandering around Seville one Saturday. Taken with my new Autographer camera
I loved the decorations inside La Estraza – plus their “comfort food” tapas were delicious!
Doctor Bar was a cool indie bar & club open late and always with good music
Architecture in Seville is incredible. While this photo is of the Real Alcazar and understandably beautiful, even my apartment was beautifully tiled with mosaics
The Real Alcazar de Seville is truly beautiful!
Underneath the Real Alcazar is a hidden spot where there was once a swimming pool – now it’s just a cool spot to take a break from the strong heat outside
Plaza España has small mosaic, tiled squares for each region/city of Spain
Triana, the popular hangout ‘hood for tapas and cheap drinks. Along the river is Calle Betis – famous for its nightlife :)
