We are often asked, “So, what do you guys do in your free time?” And, for how corny it sounds, we answer with “We take walks!” We decided to do a photo documentary of what this looks like on any given Saturday. Below is a earth image showing our route followed by pictures from the walk. The walk lasted about 4 hours with stops at shops and eateries. Enjoy!
Leaving the apartment building
Lindsay and Rocky on their way to San Jacinto Street
A few people enjoying a bite and a beer at one of the bars outside our home
The olive shop down the block. Best olives in the world!
Our usual coffee joint…
Our buddy Jose Juan, can’t understand much of what he says, but he makes a killer cafe con leche
Lindsay, making our way down San Jacinto and out of our barrio, Triana
Tour bus drives by as we make our way out of Triana and across the bride to The Center
A look over the water to the center, can see La Catedral in the distance sitting just beyond the bull ring. This street is Betis Street, very popular for night-lifers
A look over as we arrive on the other side of the bridge, this is the bike path we take every day on our way to the gym
A very live kiosk bar that sits with a great view of the sunset, it’s always busy with people, cheers, and music
On foot or by carriage, everyone enjoys the beautiful bull ring
The cities new metro system takes a stroll past the new fountain and square
Can never pass up the opportunity to stroll past the world famous Catedral de Sevilla
Lindsay was in need of an English teaching book from the city center’s newest media store
While the ladies shopped, us tag-a-longs were hypnotized by this AC/DC concert, I guess its not often I get to see a big screen anymore
We went across the street to a montaditos (small sandwich) shop to have a snack and beer
Just loose change
Any time you go out you’re bound to find something going on…
This time it was a nativity expo
Heading into the shopping district, parents are out buying those matching outfits for their kids this Christmas 🙂
The balloon clown made these kids some swords
We made our way down to Alameda Park to see the new ‘Cabezas’ (head) exhibit, these bike stops are all over the city now, rent a bike, unlimited use, for $14 a year! Just pick it up at A, drop it off at B!
Its getting dark and time to make our way back to Triana and home, on the way, noticed Burger King was nicely dressed for the holiday season.
Peaked in a window to watch this guy make churros
Care for some ham or chorizo?
Crossing back over the bridge, what a beautiful sight
A look back to see La Catedral’s bell tower (La Giralda) lit up
A quite street that leads to our back door, this street is packed with wonderful ceramics stores
Rocky and his ball are always so welcoming when we finally get home
Beautiful. I can’t wait to see it in person. 😉
Thanks for the update!
Ross and Lindsay,
Great photos, I think it is smart to keep Ross out of them, more likely to get people to look. Although I did see one of him riding on top of the car in Gibralter (sp?). Glad to see you guys are making the most of it… and sorry that you are going to have to put up with Dave for the next 10 days. Have fun!!
…Yall look great!…Still can’t believe that you are living in Spain…That’s so cool…See you soon!
