Living Up To The Hype: Seville’s Plaza de España

Every traveler has spent time at over-hyped tourist attractions in their travels. Honestly, often a lot of the biggest attractions just don't live up to their hype. In a city filled with gorgeous, historic architecture, I was expecting Seville's Plaza de España to be a bit of a miss. Turns out I was wrong. Read on to see why the Plaza de España pleasantly surprised us.

Walls of Avila, Spain

Walking the Cold Walls of Avila and Enjoying the Sunshine

From it's mountainous plateau, Avila, Spain is a sight to behold. With gigantic walls nearly a thousand years old, the city is a veritable fortress of churches and convents. It's also darn cold in February. Avila was the first stop on our road trip from Madrid to Portugal and the city didn't disappoint. Check out our take on it and wonder aloud with us what we were doing there in sub zero temperatures just one week after leaving the warm tropical beaches of Mexico.
