Seville & Cordoba

This weekend I went on a group excursion with my program ISA to the cities of Seville and Cordoba. I loved them both! It was a blast to explore these amazing places and soak up the sunny warm weather. We spent two nights in Seville and saw the Palace and Cathedral, stuffed my face with my friends Jess and Caroline in the best little Italian restaurant, soaked in the city lights along the river, and walked around for hours. We spend Sunday in the windy streets of Cordoba, visiting La Mezquita (the biggest Mosque in the world) and admiring the pretty flower pots hanging off all the walls of the buildings. It was a wonderful weekend. I love the vibe that all of Andalusia has to offer.

  1. Okay . . . these pics are awesome!!!!! (You and your brother are becoming great photographers. Have you seen the pics on his facebook page?) The 3rd one on your March 11 post – the one with the two doves in the tree. Did you know that doves mate for life? It’s true! So, says your Uncle Scott (Delzell). That’s what I though of when I saw that picture.
    Paris, France!!!! Is Norte Dame not the most amazing sight you’ve ever seen! I was blown away. I just stood there staring at it. You and Cole look like you had a great time.
    Are there any pics of the place where your staying? How about your host parents?
    Miss ya! Hope you’re having a great time with your brother and your parents!
    Love ya!

      Those are such vibrant pictures! “) I have always wanted to go to Spain. Which places are the best for a first-timer? Et je ne parle pas Spanish, seulement Francais. Lol.

  3. There is such a sense of romance to Seville — I definitely need to visit, especially after browsing your gorgeous pix!

    Beautiful pictures! I also studied abroad in Andalucia four years ago, in Malaga. I have been to Granada twice now (and seen the Alhambra both times). I have been to Cordoba and Sevilla several times now too. For the past 2 years I’ve been living in Madrid and I love living in Spain. I’m leaving in September and I hope to visit Granada one last time–my former roommate is from there and she graciously agreed to host me whenever I wanted to come visit. Have a great time enjoying your study abroad experience!

  22. andy1076 says:

  28. Jual Minyak Zaitun says:

    very beautiful and a great experience you are having. i like you photos

  29. Skip Allen says:

    What a treat to see your post. I lived in Seville in the early 70s, but haven’t been back. Your pics brought back many fond memories of the places and the people. I was especially fond of a little place south of Seville called Moron del la Fronterra. There was a wonderful singer who lived there and folks from all over came to hear him sing. His name was Diego de Gastor, but he has past on. Lots of wonderful memories. Thanks.

  30. luaydpk says:

    i like this, beautiful! i’ve read a part of Corgova history… Great and wonderpul..

  31. Olivia Griselda says:

    nice photos! the handicraft and the oranges caught my eyes 🙂

  32. Fantastic photos! Especially the one with the fans! Seville is already on my list of places to go to, and this post just made me want to go pronto!

  33. Reblogged this on athinajstockman and commented:
    This is a vary interesting blog. The photography has warmth to the photographs and I can feel the passion of the artist within the images. I want to recognize this blog because it is helpful and refreshing to see what is out in the world. Just by caring a camera everywhere you go can bring awareness of what is being overlooked. Trust me you will not walk away empty handed. The images will be your treasures from your adventure that day. I believe this artist walked away with some fascinating images that remind me how interesting the world is and why I am studying as a photographer.

  34. nhoxbubucute says:

    Woa! That’s so amazing…:)
    I really Iike them

  35. Brings back memories when I traveled there. 🙂

  36. Love the pictures, they are soooooo pretty! Also, the picture with different fans, so colorful! May I ask what camera did you use? 🙂

  42. Really the great experiences with that…….

  43. Billie Jean says:

    I like your photos, what a magnificent place. Looks like you enjoy it :). Spain is definitely a place I would like to visit within a few years.

  45. amenjesus says:

    God , you always surprises us .
    Thanks so much for sharing.

    I thinks we should thanks to God our lord of Universe , and all created
    because is just awesome.

    we can say even marvellous. because doesnt shape the truth.

  46. Anna says:

    Wow! I can’t get over the amazing colours in your photographs!

  47. Meghan says:

    I studied abroad in Córdoba during college and absolutely loved it. La mezquita, all the little shops, the sloping cobblestone streets, the wide bridges over the river, little grocery stores, flower boxes, the university where I took classes… too much to put down in a little space like this. I was there during la Feria, where they set up an enormous carnival of tents and rides and had fireworks… it happens every spring and I wish I could be there to see it this year. I still think about that semester all the time, and seeing your photos made me both very happy and a little sad and wistful – I hope I can make it back there one day. I have pictures standing just where you are!
    Crazy how big the world is, yet with pictures like yours how small and familiar it can become. Congrats on FP!

  48. aso127 says:

    This is really a good work. I appreciate your efforts behind that. Have a great day!

  49. GalonTrip says:

    looks like one of the best girl trip ever….. i miss those days too, especially in spain….

  50. Lonnie says:

    Beautiful pictures especially of the architecture.

  51. Jodi says:

    Spain is definitely in my near future. Seville seems awesome!

  52. I’ve been to Cordoba and Seville and will never forget their beauty. I love your photo of the orange trees as I was there when Seville smelled of orange blossoms…impossibly romantic. Your pix of the Mezquita are gorgeous and I love the black and white of the musicians.

  53. As an American living in Seville, your photos are making me want to grab my camera and head to the center. Lovely shots.

  54. Lovely shots of a city I’m lucky to call home!

  55. I was in Spain in 2008 (Wow, that seems so long ago now) and we went to Seville and Cordoba as well. These pictures bring it back as if it were yesterday. Unfortunately I lost all my photos in a computer crash so it was lovely seeing these.

    Thanks for posting, and congratulations on being Freshly Pressed.

  56. Sara says:

    I studied abroad in Spain and loved visiting Cordoba. Great “trip down memory lane” through your photos. Hope you continue to enjoy your stay!

  57. Great photos! I have always wanted to go to Seville (have been to other parts, but not Seville). It looks amazing.

  58. Loved your images! Makes me miss my visit to Seville!! And I never made it to Cordoba but it is definitely on the list for my next visit. 🙂

  59. cesardagord says:

    I’ve never been to Spain. But each time I turn around and see posted pictures of Spain, the desire to be there increases. One day! meanwhile I live vicariously though other people’s lenses. Thanks for sharing.

    These photos are awesome! I used to live in Spain a long time ago and miss wandering around. I hope to go back someday and take tons of photos. Keep it up!

  62. tomasharanphotography says:

    I really like your post. I used to live in Spain years ago and wish I had a camera and some skill back then. I really hope to go back sometime in the near future as I loved going everywhere. And the food is amazing too. Keep up the photos!

  63. restlessjo says:

    Love your photos. I think Cordoba is my favourite of all 3 but it’s a hard choice. The patio courtyards won me over, but Granada is incomparable and Sevilla just plain seductive.

  64. Rachel says:

    wow great pictures! I can’t wait to go on an adventure like this. What kind of camera do you use?

  65. Ryan Sprout says:

    Splendid photos! Looks like an amazing place to visit and your trip sounds delightful!

  66. cielotech says:

    Great pictures. My wife and I LOVE Spain–Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, etc. Great places to visit and we found the people to be really nice and helpful. I am certainly glad you had a great time and looks as though you had a very safe trip. ( The very best kind.)

    Take care.

  67. Becky says:

    These are fantastic shots! I’ve never actually been anywhere but when I do this is definitely going right near the top of my list!

  68. Audrey says:

    Such great photos! Looks like a fun trip, full of unforgettable experiences.

  69. Lovely photos. It seems like you’re really enjoying your time there. I spent two years living in Madrid and had the chance to go to Cordoba (though sadly not Seville). It was a great time and I have that same postcard somewhere! The architecture, the vibrancy, the warmth, the people…I just love Spain.

  70. leavemehere says:

    Really great tones and vignetting in the pics 😉 Nice.

  71. Looks like you had a fantastic trip! Great shots!

  72. wordsofastranger says:

    awesome pictures! I’ve never been to Granada but your pictures make me want to go. They make me miss Morocco as well 🙂

  73. triciamaria says:

    I love your photos of the architecture they are awesome and really capture the culture and essence of Spain! Thank you for sharing them!

  74. starlight says:

    i love your photos.. the keys, the locks, the souvenir plates, the fans, the trinkets, and the wonderful architecture of the structures, everything.. you take beautiful photographs.. thanks for sharing.

    I really like your style and the colors of your images!! Lovely!! 😀

  78. Beautiful photos – I went to Seville and Valencia in 2010 and your photos are making me want to head back to Spain – such a beautiful country.

  79. Looks like you had fun, nice job with the photos.

  80. Well Said. Congrats for being freshly pressed.

    I stumbled upon your blog today. I am leaving on Thursday to visit my daughter who is studying abroad in Seville. I loved your pictures and I am so excited about going to see these sights myself. Also, I noticed that I have the same sandals that are pictured in the main picture. The daughter I am coming to see bought them for me, after I admired the ones like them that she was wearing. This is called “synchonicity.” Visit my blog one day

  84. awesome photos! i am booking our trip to Spain, and you’ve just convinced me Sevilla is a MUST DO!

  85. I lived in Seville for a year, last year, and it is the most beautiful place in the whole of Spain (in my opinion! :)) the Mezquita de Cordoba is breathtaking too.

  86. melvisx says:

    ISA was a great experience for me and I fell in love with Granada; great pictures! Thanks for the memories 🙂

  87. CMBasler says:

    I used to live in Rota, on the southern coast. This is reminding me of good times.

  88. forum auto says:

    Great places aren’t they. I really must go back to both. Thanks so much for sharing these images.
    I want to get on here to see these beautiful places.

  89. mackerelskies says:

    Great photos! You guys look like you were having a lot of fun (gotta say I love seeing women who aren’t afraid to get in front of the damned camera already, I have way too many friends who absolutely refuse to have their photo taken, and it’s irritating as hell when you’re trying to save a few mementos from a fun event that involves them!) My favorite photo is the lock and keys – so much more stylish than the boring combination lock I own!

  90. Granada, your soul city…that makes me happy. I ended up spending 7 more days than planned in Granada and went back for two more to wrap up my trip. One of my favorites was the bustling blue collar Cosmos Churreria that we ate and had coffee at every morning. We made countless friends in Granada. Cheers.

  91. The Hook says:

    Gorgeous shots! Thanks for sharing!

  92. Albertobé says:

  93. pnwauthor says:

    Muchas gracias for the sunny Spain pics. Wouldn’t I like to be there right now soaking in those rays and photographing the architecture.

  94. So beautiful. Great work!

    The Mezquita is without a doubt, the highlight of Corboba. The stunning architecture enhances the magical and mystical beauty of the mosque. The white-washed walls of the quaint little town and narrow cobblestone roads, delights as you navigate your way past many little cafes and souvenir shops. A little town often left off the Spanish itinerary, but one worth visiting. Thanks for sharing your journey and beautiful photos.

    Beautiful pictures. I was an ISA student 10 years ago, I studied in Sevilla. Even 10 years later, I still miss those cities and long to go back. And I still keep in touch with my friends from the program too. It’s an experience you will never forget! Enjoy every minute! 😉

  121. I love Seville and Cordoba…been a few years since I’ve been there, but your pics bring me back

  122. arannz says:

    Is so beautiful… all cute…

  123. irisoniris says:

    I really enjoyed this blog entry. It was like visiting another world. I lived my whole life in Southeast Asia so I never get tired of blogs like this. I once named a heroine in a(n unfinished) novel Seville; I reasoned if I gave her the name of a place it would hint at how her location is the driving force of the story. (Sorry if that was too random, haha.) Anyhoo, the pictures you posted gave me another reason to add this to my bucket list. 🙂

  124. Great shots! So happy 😀

  125. Such originality in these pictures. They really took me there. You really captured the spirit of these places!

  126. kathleenkirby says:

    ahhh everytime I reread this post I love it more! So great!!!

  127. abdul1983 says:

    love the pictures.
    thanks for sharing.

  128. I needed to compose you the

    little remark to finally say thanks once again for those
    unique tactics

    you’ve documented on this page. It’s simply tremendously generous of people like you giving without

    precisely what numerous people could have offered
    for an electronic book in making some bucks for

    their own end, principally considering the

    fact that you could have

    tried it if you ever wanted. The thoughts

    likewise acted to

    become easy way to be

    sure that someone else

    have the identical dreams just

    like my personal own to figure out more pertaining to
    this problem.

    I am sure there are lots of more fun sessions up front for individuals who scan your website.

  129. Valentina says:

    You completed several good points there. I did a search on the

    subject matter and found mainly

    people will agree with your blog.
