carlos ortiz, andalucia tours and discovery

I love to travel and I love to ride the bike. While I was traveling I realised how easy it was to explore a new place on a bike. And it is even better when someone tells you where you should go and explains everything you should know about the city and the things you see.

People in Sevilla are very proud of their city and we love to share storie...
