SEVILLE TRAVEL DIARY

Seville Spain Blogger Photographer Style Alice Reinhardt Form 42

Seville is an amazing place, and I was lucky enough to spend a weekend exploring every corner of it. A picture is worth a thousand words, or so I’m told. So I will keep the writing short and to the point and this post picture-heavy, because there are really that many great things to see in Seville. Segway your way across Seville, then take the tram. When we first jumped off the bus from Nerja and train from Malga, we just…

SEVILLE PART II

Seville Spain Andalusia Style Form 42

Founded 3,000 years ago by the greek God Hercules (this has got to be 100% legit, right?), Seville is now a jewel of both southern Spain and big budget film productions. It’s home to Star Wars’ Naboo, and Game of Thrones’ Dorn, among other productions. After Hercules and before hollywood it had some Roman and Moorish history. Apart from all this, Seville is also a great place to have a weekend break. If you are looking for some short-haul winter…

SEVILLE PART I

Seville Spain Andalusia Style Form 42

I arrived in Seville expecting not all that much. Perhaps a barber and a cathedral. And after a couple of bumpy bus and train journeys along the Andalusian coast which involved financial regulatory framework revision and maths drills, I would have settled for just the cathedral. It was the end of a very hot day and probably the only sane time to explore. So I took a walk around the centre of town, through twisty little side streets, past grocery…

GRANADA ALHAMBRA

Granada Alhambra Spain Andalusia Style Form 42

The next stop on my Andalusian adventure was Granada. Among a cosy town centre and streets lined with ice cream shops Granada’s real gem is the Alhambra – a vast fortress and palace built during the Arabic occupation of the south of Spain. All of the panels, ceilings and walls are intricately carved by hand in amazing shapes and patterns. Of course my love of ceilings aside there was even more in the way of doors, doors and more doors.…

ANDALUSIAN SUMMER

Nerja Spain Andalusia Style Fashion Form 42

On my last evening in Nerja I walked down to the beach to watch the sunset. And when in Spain… Long story short, I decided to dip a toe into the local culture as well as enjoy some manual air con with this red fan I picked up along the way. Having also dipped a toe into the sea and propped up some white-washed walls on the way there, I was finally ready to leave Nerja behind and move onto…

NERJA RIO CHILLAR GORGE – PART II

Nerja Spain Andalusia Style Form 42

Following my from previous post, my trek through Rio Chillar gorge ended in this rather scenic parking lot (see last picture). From here we navigated towards the beach and the impressive array of ice cream shops lining it. I have this theory, that the first ice cream shop you get to on a beach is never the best, because that’s where most people naturally go – so it doesn’t need to impress. So, with my new dietary resolve out the window, I…

NERJA RIO CHILLAR GORGE – PART I

Nerja Spain Rio Chillar Andalusia Style Fashion Form 42

Nerja is considered one of the most idyllic beach towns in Spain and is somewhere between Malaga and Granada. It’s famous for being one of Europe’s best beaches, but without dwelling on my disappointment, let’s just say that by far best part about Nerja is the Chillar Gorge. It’s a day-long trek into the gorge up Rio Chillar river. So go, see, conquer and do so in your worst pair of trainers. You can also make the trek as long or as short…

NAUTICAL IN NERJA

Nerja Spain Andalusia Style Fashion Form 42

 After coming back from Asia, I wasn’t quite ready to give up on the summer sun. Unfortunately, here in London, summer gave up on me. So I promptly hopped a flight to Spain’s Andalusia, with a quick pit stop at Nerja on Costa Del Sol. The sunshine coast turned out to be far less sunny and about 20*C colder than places not on the coast. Like Granada and Seville. But after eating my body-weight in ice cream and wrapping up…

BARCELONA MONTJUIC

barcelona travel spain

     Before heading back for another year at Central Saint Martins, I managed to catch a weekend break in Barcelona. It was one of those completely last-minute impromptu journeys that involved me grabbing just my camera, hand luggage and my walking boots. It was such an inspiring, relaxing and welcome adventure. My favourite moment was walking up though the park Montjuic to the peak of the hill. From here I had a perfect view of all of Barcelona: the…
