Frugal Travel Tips For Seville, Spain

Seville is one of the prettiest towns in all of Spain, filled with plazas and history. One of the highlights of Seville, Alcazar, an ancient Islamic palace, is well worth the pricey entrance fee. To offset that expense, there are a number of free sights to see, including the other must, the Seville Cathedral with its free entrance on Sundays.

Seville Cathedral With Giralda Tower On Sunday

Normally the Seville Cathedral with Giralda Tower charges a high entrance fee. When I went, I paid the fee and did not begrudge the expense. One of the few cathedrals with the private rooms open to the public, and a tower that overlooks almost all of old Seville (the ramp in the tower, instead of stairs, allowed ancestors to ride a horse up instead of walking), it is one of the top Seville attractions.

Yoga Travel in Weird Times of Pandemic

One could say that the frequent flyer mileage collector I am, ought to experience traveling during the weird times of global public health circumstances. Times that send various layers of stakeholders (Ministries, Airlines, Health official, transport officials, etc) into one of the most chaotic situations ever. In fact, I do agree on the experience of traveling under weird circumstances is unique, with airline agents disguised as astronauts and airports set up as temporary migration centers equipped with Public health Units and doctors’ offices.

Sc-fi is reality, planes are empty, masks, gloves, Crew members with plexiglasses and non-woven cover-ups abound, airport lounges and gates deserted like ghosts towns and silence replaced, crowd pacing. Securing connections between rare flights, pre-flight administrative paperwork, an unpleasant Swab test like scrubbing of my stomach is included in the package!
