Usually, our summer holidays consists of my family either camping or being rained on and somehow we always, always wear our cagoules/raincoats. Let's be honest Mum. However it makes us laugh looking back at the photos:
The surrounding area had tall buildings but the land was quite flat and it had things to do nearby however it did not possess any major shops but mainly market stalls selling an array of items from jewellery to model ships.
We stayed in a hotel called Meliá Atlántico which was extremely luxurious but very expensive and the loveliest hotel that I have been to. It was very clean and the staff were very efficient and polite. I shared a room with my brothers and although the room was not the biggest room to fit 3 people, we made it work and it still felt like we were in heaven as we often had our bed sheets changed regularly and I loved the freebies that I got in the bathroom.
This is the outside of the bull ring which led to a little street with a few boutique shops.
We went to sightseeing and saw the Cathedral and Palace of Seville. The interiors were incredible and they were laden with gold detailing and décor.
In the Cathedral we saw where Christopher Columbus was buried and his tomb was decorated extravagantly.
We then climbed up 35 slopes to get to the top of the Cathedral to the bell tower and by this time it was extremely hot in Seville but we saw some amazing sights from the top.
We went to the Palace after the Cathedral which was really intricate and had many secret rooms.

The ceiling was encrusted (ooh love that word) with gold detailing.
This was the walkway leading out to one of the gardens.
Every night at the hotel there was some type of entertainment in the 'show bar' which I thoroughly enjoyed as there were performances from some of my favourite shows: Peter Pan (my absolute favourite), Grease and Mamma Mia! Other times there was Spanish flamenco dancing, Tina Turner tribute act and a magic show.

We went for a walk in the town and around the harbour where all the restaurants were.
We also went go-karting around the streets which was a lot of fun!
On our last day we had a relaxing time by the pool and the beach.
Caesar salad I had for lunch at the hotel, along with this yummy drink of red wine, soda water and lemonade.
These were lovely views of the pool which I enjoyed whilst having my lunch.
Overall I felt this holiday was amazing and I have re-lived it writing this long blog post and I am sure you have too. I took many more photos but I thought it would be best to share my favourite ones with you :)
Well done if you read this far! I really hoped you enjoyed reading this and other blog posts in the future.
