If you cast your mind back to the start of this little blog, I used to do a lot of ‘My Weekend in Photographs’ posts. At the time, I used to love those posts, but nowadays I am enjoying writing a lot more. Maybe because my life is a little more exciting now and I have a bit more to tell you every week!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently found a tonne of photos that I have taken on my GoPro since being here, that I hadn’t really looked at yet. Some of them are really cool, I am dead impressed with the little camera! So, I thought I would share my favourites with you. Enjoy!
As you can see, the majority of my favourite photos from Spain so far were taken in Cádiz. Apart from where I am living, it is the city that I have spent the most time in and I could go back again and again. The city itself is beautiful, the atmosphere is just as warm and welcoming as my tiny town and it has never felt too touristy to me.
For this year abroad, I had the choice of working, going to university or doing a teaching assistantship. I chose the latter, but if I had gone to university it would have been in Cádiz. I am 100% confident that I made the right choice, but even so I don’t think option two would have had me complaining!
Equally as beautiful, but in a completely different and non-city-like way, these photos were all taken in my temporary hometown of Prado del Rey. Prado is a tiny, white village in the middle of the mountains which means that it has some of the most wonderful countryside views. I am so in love with this place. It’s only been two months, but I can tell you now that I will struggle to leave in June.
I wrote about my weekend in Barcelona here and even though I have only spent 48 hours in the city so far, although that will be changing next weekend, I can see why it is so popular with tourists. In Barcelona you have a gorgeous beach and harbour an easy metro journey away from equally stunning architecture. The best of both worlds, no?
I have written about Seville oh-so-many times already, and I will most likely continue to do so throughout the year. There is just so much to see and do here! It helps that every building is both historically prominent and fantastically designed, obviously.
The past two months have been an absolute whirlwind, but I honestly (and cheese-ily, I know) wouldn’t change a thing. Year abroad, you have been good to me so far. Keep it coming, please!
