Flag of Spain and Canary Islands  , Andalusia,
Tuesday, November 18, 2008

I flew back into Spain this morning, and the 20 degree sunny weather here really made me wonder why I left it so long to come back.  It was pissing down in Belfast this morning when I left and chilly 6 degrees. 

At Malaga airport I casually asked how much it would be to rent a car for a week, not really expecting to do anything about it, but when the answer came back only €20 per day, I figured Iīd spend that much on buses anyway, so I got myself a wee Nissan Micra, just like the one I had in Barcelona last year. :) 

The "Flyinī Micra" made it up to Sevilla in about 2 hours, but I then spent another 2 hours driving around the city looking for my hostel.  From what Iīve seen of Sevilla it looks beautiful, lots of old castles and cathedrals.  I didnīt expect it to be so big, but it is the capital of Analusia and Spains 4th largest city.  My hostelīs right in the middle which is a problem because lots of the city centre is pedestrianised, so Iīve had to park about 20 minutes walk away.  Like most big Citys, parking here is a nightmare, so Iīm hoping the carīs ok when I go back in the morning.

My friend Rosa arrives tomorrow night, so Iīve got all day to go sightseeing or whatever on my own before the drinking starts. :-)

I really missed Spain...
