Early start for them today.
Sherry, mine doesn't love travel as much as I do, either. I don't love crowds, though, so I might avoid Semana Santa week. But some day I will be back!
Gwynn, it is never often enough! If only I could convince my husband to go, I know he would love it, too! Someday. He's a homebody, though. :)
Ah, Sherry! Totally jealous you can go so often! I downloaded and read the Kindle sample of Diving over Lemons for free and plan to buy it now. :) I would love to go back and take my husband but that may be a while since right now he can only travel in the summer - and it might not be my first choice of location for June or July. :)
Yes, I like to go in March, as well. This past March, though, was the first time I went and the weather was uncooperative. :) It was cold, windy, and rainy most of the time. I didn't care. Seville is beautiful no matter the weather. I spend as much time there as possible. I was going about once a year, that turned into once every six months, and now I have just gotten back in March and want to go again. I wish I could convince my husband to spend a few months there a year with me. :)I've also read the Driving Over Lemons books and heartily recommend them, as well!!!!!
Neil, I am always looking for a good book so will look that one up right now. I had forgotten about uploading a photo last year. :) I think the nets stayed up for most of the summer for shade, if I remember correctly.
I did indeed. It was just full of motorcycle's, what was I supposed to think? Gwynn, I don't know if you have read the book, Driving over Lemons and A Parrot in the Pepper Tree by Chris Collins. It's about him buying a farm in Andalucía. Definitely worth reading.
Sherry, Seville is wonderful. I was there a year ago in March and the weather was amazing and it is such a relaxed, beautiful place. I can definitely recommend March as a good time to go! And Andalucia is cheaper than some other places, for sure. Neil has been, as well, and several others who comment here somewhat regularly. :) Neil, I was just remembering when this one was new and you commented, wondering what it was - other than a motorcycle parking lot. LOL!
Thanks also for the info about looking at the photos. I never even noticed that option! How cool.
Thanks, kindly, to both of you! It's lovely.I need to be there when one of these things is going on. I typically shop up in early March and miss all this stuff. Once I was there for the Christmas markets and that was fantastic.
I noticed it was your picture as well Gwynn, so thank you.
Well last year we thought it might be new apartments going up..... just kidding. :) Corpus Christi it is. Well done, Neil.
If you have a look at the photos Sherry you can see a pic of the tower from last years Corpus Christi, that's the event.
Thanks, Neil. I hope I don't miss it, whatever it is! :)
