Hello Everyone!

My name is Ismay van der Linden. I am 18 years old and I was born in
Amsterdam.

I am currently following the Management Travel and Hospitality course in Den
Bosch at the Koning Willem I College. I chose this course because I enjoy the cultures of other countries and would like to learn more about them.

Of course, I also love to travel and go on holiday so that's why tourism is the
perfect choice for me.

In my second year, I have to do an internship of five months, which I w...

The typical Andalusian and more specifically Sevillian cuisine varies a lot depending on the time of year, cold dishes being very common in summertime, due to the heat of the land. It is a cuisine based on the Mediterranean diet, that is, all products of the earth. In Summer, it is common to eat dishes like:

- Picadillos - the picadillos consists of minced tomato, onion and pepper and seasoning it with salt, oil and vinegar. To cool it quickly, ice cubes are added.
- Salpicón - the seafood salpicón (like a seafood salad) is bas...

In this blog we tell you about the best spots to see ceramics in Seville.

In Seville you can find ceramics on every corner of almost every street. Ceramics are used for many things, such as for street signs, but also as art or as a promotion for example a ceramics shop.

Places where a lot of ceramics can be found are in the center, near old buildings and especially in Triana. Triana is an old working-class neighbourhood on the other side of the river. This is where the ceramics come from and are still made!

A nice spot w...

Another one of the city’s icons, this defensive tower from the 13 century built by the Almohads, which was part of the old wall which surrounded the city. It is 36 meters tall, and you can find it next to the Maestranza bullring, on the left side of the Guadalquivir which crosses the city. This is therefore why the San Telmo bridge is the perfect place to enjoy this tower from, and from which you can get great views of the city in general.

Even though in the past it was used as a prison, you can now visit it and go up to the top. In f...

With its historic monuments, excellent dining options and great atmosphere, Seville is a wonderful place to visit. Once you set foot in the streets you will realize that there is a certain magic and charm to it. Watching the sunset on the banks of the Guadalquivir, a walk through Triana or a drink on a terrace after seeing the cathedral are examples of unforgettable memories.

Seville is a city rich in history and culture. One of the most striking examples is the Real Alcázar, a monument that showcases all the wealth the city has to of...
