A personalised itinerary for a family stay in Seville

Before we went to Seville, I hit google looking for some itineraries that we could possible follow during our trip. They were clearly written by young, energetic jet-setters who were able to cram as much as possible into their fifteen hour days and barely stop for a breather. UH OH I don’t know about your…

The easiest way to book Flamenco tickets in Seville

After spending an afternoon at the Museum of Flamenco in Seville we returned to our apartment and subsequently decided that we’d like to see a proper flamenco show and set about finding some tickets.

It’s the real deal! Visiting Real Alcazar, Seville

Seville’s history is magnificently twisted between being conquered and rising defiantly.  It’s thought that the city dates back to Hercules when he divided the land between Seville and Gibraltar.

A little treat in Corfu. Our wonderful long weekend at Villa Livadi

After the kids and I (Emma) spent a manic fortnight backpacking alone in Seville and Cadiz and with Rich being away in Australia and Hong Kong, the kids had this great idea that we would all meet up in Gatwick and take a ‘holiday’ somewhere, where we did NOTHING. Absolutely nothing; no exploring, no history, no…
