... in parts of Spain...I'm not sure if our tour helped in that respect (I think this is really one of those things you have to grow up with your entire life to understand) but at the very least we got a behind the scenes look and learned some of the history. The tour guide definitely took me by surprise when she announced that they kill the bull's mother too. Since English was not her first language (and she was doing very well with it) she had awkward pauses now ...
... we were initially in line, we get to the front of the line at the original entrance, and they charged Veronica for 30 students instead of 9. Cue feisty Spanish woman freak-out. The guards looked scared, and they were supposed to be guarding the vacation home of the royal family. At last we got in, and slightly out of the heat.
The original palace was constructed by the Romans. While the capital of the Islamic Empire was located in Cordoba, the Sultan ...
... I wore their traditional hair comes, shoulder scarfs, flamenco dresses and big flowers for my hair. Very stunning though. The lace drapes they have over their heads are also around 70euro up to 250 euro so that is out of the question. Went into a fabric shop where they had such lovely laces, velvets with beads etc. and more that I do not know name of.
Spanish timing is easy to swing in to, but a little tiring. We sleep till 9:30am, and ...
... verano was red wine with sparking juice in it, and I really have no idea what was in the other one but it tasted like a creamsicle. The flamenco show was different in the sense that I didn't feel like they were performing to show their fame or their talent. It was more like a performance out of duty and respect for this culture that they have to uphold. Sadly it's time to leave Spain, but all in all Spain is a place I can definitely see myself coming back ...
Family and Friends,
This is going to be a way to stay in touch with what is going on while I am in Spain and on my other journeys this semester. I'm not the greatest at responding to messages and comments, but I am going to try my very hardest to keep this pretty consistent!:)

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eurostars Regina Seville
A good hotel in an iffy location
Stayed 19th to 22nd February 2004.
Good service level all round. Check-in smooth, friendly and helpful.
Breakfast restaurant staff equally good. Excellent breakfast included in our stay.
Found the location the major downside to our stay. All the action is almost always to the south involving a walk of 15 minutes. This became a chore during the siesta when everything was shut and when it rained (heavily) a few nights.
The quality of fittings and furnishings was of a high standard and comparable to a 4 star establishment.
The room was a decent size and had no odours, which in chain-smoking Spain is an achievement IMHO.
The breakfast provided was buffet style and could not be faulted.
Almost made the hotel worthy of a fourth star.
Loved the location!
The Regina is bright, clean, the breakfast was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful and the underground car park is a real plus if you need to dump your car! The location is on a tiny one way road and is a 10 minute stroll to the hub of activity in the centre - no shortage of bars and Tapas! We liked it so much we are dropping in there agian later in 2004!
Wow! This is really good!
This is a really value for money hotel. Its really big, clean and classy....and the hotel staff were most helpful, giving us good tips on travel, etc.
No doubt that the hotel is about 10-15 min walk away from city centre.
But you must remember that this is Seville that we are talking about and the walk to the city centre are nice and easy, where you can look around and explore the little corners and nice architecture of Seville.
??location/postage stamp rooms....
Hotel was clean and staff very nice. Location is not convenient at all and street is noisy. Our rooms were barely big enough to turn around in. We left after one night and stayed at another location. A fine hotel for budget minded travellor that doesn't mind TINY rooms. Good breakfast. Very clean.
We had an excellent experience at hotel Regina. The room was clean and in perfect condition, and the staff was very helpful. The only negative issue is that the walls are so thin that conversation in the adjacent room is nearly distinguishable.(This seems to be a problem with many hotels in Spain) The hotel is about 15 minutes from the main tourist sites, a pleasant walk through the old streets and squares of Seville.
Positive Rating but. . .
Nice place. The staff speaks English. However, don't get your laundry done there by the staff--prices are outrageous. Location is a drawback to the major sites but it's a fun walk there through Seville's unique neighborhoods.
Remarks on the Regina
We just spent a full week at the Regina and all I can say: it's a splendid hotel!!!. Service, breakfast and rooms deserve at least 4 stars, only pity that some other URL's say that the bar serves snacks: Don't know how it is in other months, but in july the bar was only open from 5pm to 11pm and all they had were a ham & cheese sandwich. Happy enough on the waterfront there are a lot of small restaurants serving decent food for about 5 Euro
We have just returned from a weekend break in Seville, staying at the Hotel Regina. This hotel is slightly out of the centre of the town, about 10 minutes walk from the main shopping areas, but the streets are quiet and flat and it is an easy stroll. The hotel is cool, clean and quiet. It is elegantly decorated in yellow and white and is built around three courtyards. There is a small bar which serves good snacks all day - very useful if you return after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are well equipped and there is an expresso coffee machine for guests in the corridor. The buffet breakfast is exceedingly good, in a light covered courtyard. A selection of hot and cold food is on offer, along with a wide range of coffees, teas and juices. We selected this hotel on spec from the web, but were very pleased with it and would highly recommend it.
