No, we are not going to talk about the top five museums, top five landmarks or top five churches. We could do it… but you know we are all about pure hedonistic fun. So here you have out top five picks to enjoy life at its best in Seville: 1. The Ginger experience at Aire de Sevilla, one of the best spas in town. 2. Two scoops of ice cream at La Fiorentina. Mix the acidic vinegar ice cream with the sweetness of the strawberry ice cream. Or go for the sinful, rich chocolate ice cream and pair it with the heavenly light Vatican Cream. Look for the contrasts. And if in doubt, try the refreshing mint sorbet. 3. Hipster tapas at Alameda. Because this area has undergone one of the most significant renovations in the city, because there’s no way you can leave without trying Solomillo al Whisky and because you’ll see the best tattoos in Seville. Plus the coolest bycicles. If you want to brag in Instagram, this is your place. 4. A few …
Seville has joined the trend and can finally brag about its own gourmet market. Mercado Lonja del Barranco opened its doors last year to offer a modern take on traditional tapas and other typical specialties, becoming a highlight in Sevillle’s gastronomic scene. Located inside a World Heritage Historical Site and next to the famous Puente de Triana, this gleaming new space has conquered all kinds of public: those locals who look for a cool casual dinner with friends and those tourists who look for the best jamón in town.
Last weekend we attended the most wonderful wedding. Our dear friends Isabel & Jesús got married in the stunning Sevillian townhall and celebrated a glamorous party afterwards where we ate and danced until almost the break of the day. We will remember that day for the rest of our lives. It was truly emotional and fun. We helped them a little bit with the wedding preparations, I did a one minute speech during the ceremony (Without crying! Yay!) and we enjoyed their wedding as much as we did ours. Of course, the following day we were barely coach potatoes, but at some point we managed to make ourselves presentable and went out to dinner, payed a visit to our favorite ice cream shop and had a wonderful night walk through the beautiful romantic streets of Seville. This is a more personal post, not something we usually show you here, but maybe you want to have a look at these pictures and read about the funniest weekend we’ve had in a very long time?

Seville is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its mixture of sun, architecture, and culture is second to none. But if there is something that makes Seville unique is Semana Santa, where religious processions take over the city and turn it into an extraordinary explosion of faith and art. However, if you don’t know any local, knowing what to do and where to go during that particular time could be very difficult. Here you have our recommendations to discover all the secrets of Seville’s Holy Week.
These gyozas are the best gyozas we’ve ever eaten. And oddly enough we found them in a small japanese restauran in Seville. While Seville is famous because of its traditional Spanish cuisine and, of course, tapas, during the last five years the city has developed a nice taste for international menus. Being La Alameda Seville’s hippest district, there was no better location for Matsuri, a sophisticated yet cosy Japanese restaurant (where you can eat these amazing gyozas).
Seville has a truly unique atmosphere and personality. To enjoy its spirit to the fullest, there is no better way than discovering new places to grab a bite and have some drinks with friends. Because that’s one of the best things about Seville: no matter how hard life is, there is always a time and place for a lively conversation paired with tapas. Today we want to share with you the ultimate list to eat like and with locals in Seville.

Last month we spent our Easter holidays in Copenhagen. We love Copenhagen, in fact our first slow-paced weekend guide was dedicated to this delightful city. We rented an Airbnb and we ate in our favourite resturants, we took long walks in our favourite parks and we went back to our favourite pastel coloured streets. We had a fantastic time! It was our 13th visit Copenhagen. Fast forward one month. We are planning a few leisure days on the beach, trying to decide on the destination. Sardinia is high up in our bucket list, Santorini has been under our radar for a couple of years as well, Maldives sounds like paradise… but finally we choose to go back to Ibiza. What can we say? We love what we love. However, there’s always that question: Should we explore new places or should we come back to the destinations we already know and love? We have to choose: we are normal people and we don’t live in a perpetual vacation. Besides, do you know how much a …
