Sevilla Trip with CIEE program

IMG_1463

This weekend our whole program, including all the levels here in Alicante, visited Sevilla. We travelled by bus, a 7 to 8 hour bus ride, and arrived Friday night. We quickly checked into our hotel and went to a Flamenco show. It was incredible to see, it was great to view this performance since it really captures the culture of Spain. Following the show we had dinner (we didn't have dinner all together, but instead CIEE gave us 40 euros each to take care of our meals for the weekend) and then continued to explore Sevilla. The following day we visited many places, including palaces, churches, and other hot spots in Sevilla, all accompanied with a private tour (the tours are with your program alone so there is usually one tour guide for 20 people). Needless to say, the program trip to Sevilla was awesome and basically everything was included; flamenco show, tour guide, and the 40 euros given to buy food throughout the weekend, breakfast was included at the hotel. I really enjoyed traveling to another part of Spain with my program because I really felt like I got to see a lot of that place, rather than traveling alone and trying to organize events all on your own. It was nice to have someone else do that for me and just made the weekend that much more enjoyable.
