A new face: Mirthe joins our team!

So, I guess whatever you’ll find on the internet about ATD I probably have something to do with it. I’m going to make blogs, vlogs and many more! 

In my free time I like to play volleyball, go out for a run, watching movies or just being around friends! I also like it a lot to travel. So, when I had the chance to do my internship abroad, I immediately knew I had to go. This was my chance. 

Why Sevilla?

But why in Sevilla? It’s strange because I have no family or friends here (yet). Also, I do not speak a word...

Spanish siesta

 

When you think about Spain, you think about Siesta. It’s one of the most famous stereotypes about Spanish culture. But what does Siesta mean? A lot of people think that Siesta born in Spain but it’s false. Indeed, in the Romanian empire, people were already making siesta. Moreover, Siesta comes from the Romanian sixth hour. Currently, siesta is a bad topic about Spain because Spanish people are considered as lazy people, however, only 16 % of Spanish people make siesta, worst Spanish government want to delete it.

Beat the heat: How to survive the heat in Sevilla

 

 

Sevilla, a beautiful city with a rich history. The perfect destination for a city trip one might say. During the months of July and August however, the city it self remains stunning but be aware of the extreme temperatures. The temperatures could go up to 47℃  during the summertime. But why does it stay so hot?  That is because Sevilla is situated in a valley. Which causes the heat to remain in the city and the wind to blow right over! In this blog we will give you tips on how to survive...

climate andalusia

Andalusian Climate

Andalucia is split up by the Sierra Morena and the Betic Cordillera. The Betic Depression can be felt in the middle of this, which charecterises Seville with boiling summers. Other mountain regions are green, such as El Bosque de la Niebla.

Underneath I will discuss the climate of some interesting regions.

Cádiz

In Cádiz the weather is always mild, because of its climate. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate on the Atlantic coast all t...

sierra nevada, spain

 

Go somewhere else than the Alhambra!

A lot of people already know about the beauty of Granada and almost everyone visits Granada on their roadtrip through Andalucía. Sadly, a lot of people who visit Granada forget to visit the Sierra Nevada. That's a shame, because after visiting the big city, who doesn't want to see some beautiful nature?

You can easily combine a trip to Granada with the Sierra Nevada. I recommend you to stay three nights or four nights in Granada. This is perfectly enough for you to see the...

Old towers and walls of Sevilla

 

La Torre del Oro

La Torre de Oro is one of the landmarks in the city. This tower used to be built in the thirteenth century by the Moors to defend the city. They used to have a pontoon bridge between this one and the neighbourhood on the other side of the river, which is today known as Triana https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triana,_Seville . This bridge was built to destroy the boats from the enemies.

El Torre de Oro used to be found at the Guadalquivir, but because of the Lisbon earthquake in 1755, it collapsed...

Some time off

Last week I had some days off and it was boiling hot in Sevilla, so I wanted to escape the heat and relax a bit. Some Sevillan friends of mine advised me to go to Tarifa or Cadiz to visit some peaceful beaches and unwind. So that is what I did! I went solo travelling from Sevilla to Cadiz by train. This was really easy, because if you go by train from the Santa Justa train station to Cádiz, they drop you off in the city centre and it only takes about two hours to get there. I stayed in...

a new adventure by loek

 

Who am I?

Hola, qué tal? My name is Loek and I am a tourism student from The Netherlands. I am the latest addition to the ATD-team. I’m an intern and I will be a guide from May until September. 

Why Sevilla?

Well… this is a little bit weird; I had never been in Sevilla before and also I don’t have friends or family living here. Somewhere deep in my heart I just knew Sevilla would be the city that would fit me best. And well, I am living and working here now for just a little more...
