Kilchurn Castle overlooking Loch Awe
Just about every city I have visited, the second day of the itinerary was the Hop On/Hop Off bus.
Tourist Trap? Maybe.
Guilty Pleasure? Definitely.
Why do I not despise the very touristy attraction that is the bane of every local? A few reasons: easy way to get my bearings, transportation, and a fast history lesson.
Piccadilly Circus and the Eros statue in the foreground–the “Times Square” of London where the night life of London is bustling with locals, buskers, and tourists. Theatres, pubs, restaurants, and late night attractions all around for you to enjoy. Trafalgar Square in front of the National Gallery often hosts concerts and outdoor events is nearby along with Covent Garden–the theatre district.
Where: Seville, Spain
When: February 2015
Weather conditions: high 50s and close to 70 by the end of our stay in the city–beautiful walking weather–you only feel too warm when exerting yourself in full sun
How long?: 6 days 5 nights (second leg of southern Spain tour) travelled by train from Granada to Seville
