Care to Take a Walk?

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!

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

img_0057.jpg

We went across the street to a montaditos (small sandwich) shop to have a snack and beer

img_0058.jpg

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!

Heads!

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

About Ross & Lindsay

"There he was in the parking lot, the guy who'd been smiling at me for the last three weeks, it was the perfect opportunity." - "What seems like yesterday, I was walking into the gym when I heard the most beautiful voice in the world. I still can't believe she had the guts to beat me to it." - "He was cute, funny and intriguing, giving me no choice but to say yes to a trip to Estes Park." - "Our trip to Estes was great, I started to get the feeling she was more than I expected. I took the opportunity to tell her I was leaving to Spain, for an undetermined stay." - "Dang!, I'd fallen for a guy who was leaving the country. At least he'd introduced me to The Beatles and Jack Bauer, I was hoping he didn't stay long." - "Spain, what a beautiful place. I was so glad she came out to travel with me." - "It was the best time of my life. He opened my eyes to a whole new world." - "Then it was my time to come home, I was out of money and reality was calling my name." - "I was so glad he was coming home. No more long distance phone calls, no more sad lonely days." - "Back in the states, work, 14th Avenue and her. "Babe, do you like dogs?" - "We'd found the perfect dog, Rocky Raccoon made us a party of three. Our little family was just about perfect, but something was still missing." - "I had an interview with a company back in Spain, but they liked her resume better than mine." - "Could this have been true? Did he find us both English speaking jobs back in Sevilla?" - "Rocky wasn't happy about the 14hr flight, but I think he agrees with us both now, that living abroad is a dream come true." - Two of Us Writing is a glimpse into our journey living deliberately.

    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!!
    Dan

  4. …Yall look great!…Still can’t believe that you are living in Spain…That’s so cool…See you soon!
