Note: This is in continuation with my previous travel story about Barcelona.
Skydiving in Seville. Bungee-jumping in Seville. Adventurous sports in Seville. A beautiful road trip to Seville. Since I found my senses, I am hearing all such exciting things about it. The trend of Hollywood & Bollywood movies shooting in Spain added more enthusiasm into travellers across the globe to discover more and more Spanish cities. Tom Cruise saving Cameron Diaz in the climax of Knight & Day, Pierce Brosnan being badass, supercool British agent trying to save the world in Die Another Day, and of course Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara (how can anyone forget this movie), had already done the job of inspiring me to travel to Spain and especially to Seville. Then came the Game of Thrones (I believe everyone reading this must be a fan of GOT), and the craze about Spanish cities and especially Seville had already over my threshold point.
So having a week off in my management institute, I decided to follow the itinerary of ZNMD by altering it a bit. I first visited Barcelona where I spent 3 and half days before reaching to Seville. If you plan this trip a month prior to your travel, you can get a cheaper flight tickets on skyscanner.com for Seville. So I reached in Seville at midnight and it took me around 1 hour to reach my hostel. My first contact with Sevillanos came just after reaching my hostel as I was wandering around looking for the entrance of my hostel (La Flamenka Hostel: Thanks for not putting any sign boards). I roamed around the same building like for 20 minutes wondering whether I would be getting a bed for tonight or not. But thanks to the old aged owner of nearby restaurant who showed me the way to the entrance door. First of all I am telling you this because this has never happened to me in Bordeaux, France where I study. I have been in this situation where I had to roam around the city finding someone’s home or a bus station late at night and actually not getting any help. So Seville had already impressed me within a 1 hour of landing (one more good thing about Seville).
