A couple of years ago we gave you a few tips to enjoy the famous Sevillian Feria de Abril like a local. Well, today we share with you a few pictures that we took last weekend. Sometimes the first hours of a Sunday morning are the best moments to uncover the secrets behind the scenes and enjoy a different perspective. The slow-paced way, of course.
We are beyond excited! When you read this we will be flying to our second home, Seville! We have a great long weekend ahead packed with celebrations, great food and friends. And in order to share our love for this bright, lively, beautiful city with you, here you have some posts that you may have missed: – The secrets to Seville’s Holy Week – A cosy Japanese restaurant in the hippest neighbourhood of Seville – Two moodboards to feed your wanderlust – The most sophisticated restaurant in Seville, where we celebrate our traditional Christmas dinner with friends – Tips to survive Feria de abril and (almost) look and act like a local – Best breakfast in Seville – Charming corners – Our most pinned picture happens to be the take on Seville’s new architecture (Follow us on Pinterest here) – And, of course, the ultimate list to eat like and with locals in Seville.

* Writing this post is going to be a challenge… How to explain Feria de Abril to someone who has never been there or doesn’t have a Spanish background? Ok, we’ll try! This Monday starts one of the best weeks of the year in Seville: it’s Feria! Do you know that lots of people think that all the women in the South of Spain dress like a flamenca, and there are horses and toreros everywhere, and everyone drinks and dances and sings all day long? Well, that’s only true this week!!! What started as a livestock fair has turned into a week of casetas, rebujito, sevillanas and jamón. And yes, if you want to visit the Feria, you better learn these words! And you should also follow the advice of my lovely wife who being a Sevillian herself has prepared a nice list of tips for guiris (that means you, foreigners) who want to make the most of this fun and great week.
