We arrived in Seville a couple of minutes early just before 14:00 and caught a taxi to our hotel, the Melia Seville. This is another pleasant place with the best laid out storage I've seen in an hotel. You can reach the hanging space from both the passage way and the area in the bathroom which has two wash basins. There is both a separate shower …
Seville is a place where you will find a lot of grown up people who like to wine and dine. Not a party place and more of a chilling destination. We went in June and the weather was great - it was 18 - 20 degrees.
It was fun walking around, seeing the European way it's made in with so much history and architecture.

More to follow.
That's it for now. Hope all is well at home. Write soon!
