SEVILLE AND BARCELONA – spain
If I had a choice of whether to live in Seville or Barcelona I would plump for Seville every time. Seville has charm, a young vibe, historic buildings, green parks and amazing plazas. The people are friendly, the cafe culture happening and the food reasonable and good (on the whole). Barcelona is expensive (think 18 euros for each Gaudi building as an entrance fee, on the whole the people I encountered were rude and unhelpful and the food average and expensive. Although Barcelona has historic buildings it costs to get in so take a lot of dosh with you if you plan to stay here. I’m sure others have better experiences than me and it didn’t help that it was independence day when I arrived, but we were ripped off on several occasions, being a little wiser we asked for prices when they were not forthcoming and the waitress/waiter would walk off and not come back again, so be warned it pays to check out the lonely plant/trip advisor sites for good places to eat.
Anyway it was an experience so here are some pictures of seville.
