I fell in love with Seville years ago, when I did my internship here. I have been visiting a lot of cities, also in Spain, but I remember that the first time I came here I felt like I am home. And after that I have been visiting Seville I always I have felt the same.
For me the is just amazing, every day when I walk around the city I see some beautiful new things and I noticed that I´m always smiling. For me this city has everything you need, football, sun, nice weather, warm people and great food. I love football so here I have the opportunity to see it live. Because the city is small, so it is easy to walk everywhere. And during these past months I have been walking at least 8km every day and at the weekends I easily walk 16km. There is also a lot of nice bars and restaurants where I enjoy spending time with my friends. I like that you can sit outside and grab a beer. In Finland it is very cold and usually you can sit at the terrace and take a beer just during few weeks in the summer, because otherwise you will be freezing.
I like this city because there is always happening something on the streets. La bienal flamenco, Festival de las naciones, Noche en blanco, Semana Santa and a lot of more to see. And because there is so much happening, you never get bored to live here. And a lot of these events you can experience for free, so you can also save some money.
I have had a great time this past few months and I know I will have also in the future. I will do picnics in park, go to movie with my friends and go to bachata lessons. I hope you all will enjoy your time in Seville and explore and enjoy as much as I have.
It’s been 10 weeks almost. And to say it very simple, I am enjoying Sevilla a lot! I have already met so many cool people and have done a lot of nice things.
What did I do so far… Many trips to the beach, many many parties, a weekend trip to Tarifa and to Bilbao. I can highly recommend Tarifa, a really nice/cute city with amazing beaches around.
I again fell in love with the Spanish culture, it’s so much more easy going than the Dutch culture. Although sometimes I miss the directness of the Dutch people.
Last weekend, my friends from the Netherlands visited me and I enjoyed it so much to show them around and tell them all about Sevilla and I can’t wait to show my mum around next month.
And what I also noticed, living here went so easily, you meet people quickly, you learn things quickly, how to get around, speaking spanish, which food to order/buy and so on. People, just make the best out of it and have the best experience ever!!!
