Finally, the ambassador of the US declared today that our capital was elected. In September, the recordings of "Game of Thrones" will take place in Seville. The Alcazar is the chosen place and will serve as the region of Dorne, where the house Martell prevails.

Not a bad place to make this serie wherein seven kingdoms fight against each other and Dorne is an exotic world of its own. Queens and princes and kings and princesses spend their time in the gardens of Dorne and each have their own agendas and intrigues. Mind you, more than once their plans are overheard and then fall apart. Without intrigues no game of thr...

For almost two weeks Spain has been waiting for the crowning of the son of Don Juan Carlos. This new king Felipe VI will take over tomorrow, the 19th of June 2014. On all television stations you can see the special ceremony in Madrid at 10.30am. A ceremony based on austerity and which will cost less than 11 million euros, the amount the king and queen of the Netherlands spent last year. No other royal families will be present on this coronation, unlike in the low countries. The 19th of June has always been a special date, because it is the day of "Corpus Cristi"; the body of Christ. This is when many...

Although tonight is important too, most of us are trying to see if the match the Netherlands - Spain is going to be the final match of this championship again. like four years ago. The party in Seville was amazing and some of our Dutch guides had to pretend they were Polish to be safe on the street ;) The head of the beautiful statue on Constitución Avenue was missing after the big party, a curious little detail. 

To be honoust, I hope this match is going to be fine and it will no...

Every year we are amazed again by the precious pelgrimage in Andalusia, named "El Rocío"This pelgrimage goes from all corners in the region to the town with the same name. 

Here you can find a beautiful little chapel where you can find the statue of the virgen "El Rocío". Many people in Andalusian take the chance to sing, walk and eat together to take on this journey. Some still do the journey the traditional way, on horseback, or in gypsy-style covered wagons. Sometimes it can take two weeks to go from your little village to the other side of the region and more than a millio...

Another year has returned to Sevilla to thrive. This time it has to support this popular sport that is gaining more followers. Triathlon ..

But what is so fashionable about it?

Personally I think it is the cocktail of sensations transmitted and the easy attachment of different sports to practice and close to the general public.

This makes it able to practice from elite athletes to groups of friends with no more claim than having a fun time. But beware, beware, it is very addictive!… Year after year many runners repeated the experience to improve their personal best or win to his friend, in order to remind every meeting until next year is boss ...

At school, I was thought Columbus (Colón in Spanish) was born in Genova, Italy in 1451 and that his family was originally from Valladolid. There is a big but though... New studies claim this isn't sure anymore. Columbus was born in Lissabon maybe, or was he from Galicia in northern Spain? A difficult questions to answer, since Christoffer never really wrote down when he was born and where exactly he was living in his childhood. It could be that the religion of Columbus was the reason for him being mysterious about his origins. It is said he was a converted Jew. Since he was going to plead for money at the Christian Kings (Reyes Católicos), it was a better option to wait and see if...
