We initially talked about going to Barcelona after the Algarve. We did want to include one expensive city on our trip. But, when we found out Seville was a mere 3 hour bus ride from Portimao, we cut Barcelona from the itinerary.
We were not disappointed!
We actually couldn’t believe how beautiful and enchanting Seville was. And the food .. the food just got better and better with each new stop. What we loved the most is that people truly lived in Seville. Everyone went out on the weekend, no one stayed home. And even thought Spain’s been faced with some economic hardships, people looked happy. It made we wonder why we are so miserable in North America. Does weather really make that much of a difference? I still don’t have an answer but, moving to Seville is on my list of crazy things I could do.
