From October 2010 - July 2011 I lived in Seville, Spain and worked as a language and cultural assistant. I worked in a town called Dos Hermanas outside Seville. I made this blog to capture my time here the best I could for friends and family and anyone else seeking information about Spain. You can use the Search bar below to search the blog for certain cities/events. Enjoy
Saturday I went with a group of friends to a beach just across the Spanish-Portuguese border. One of my friends had a coworker who invited us for the day. The drive was about an hour and a half from Seville.

We went into the town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio and she showed us around for a bit. There was a market going on in one of the plazas and we spent some some walking through it looking at the products.
Cork is abundant in the region and many of the tables and pretty much everything you could think of made out of cork; wallets, hats, belts, bags, coasters, picture frames.. etc. I bough a small cork zip up bag to hold all of the extra change I have accumulated.
After walking around for a bit and getting a beer at a local bar we got back in the car and headed to the beach. The weather was a little cloudy and windy but still nice enough to enjoy the beach. We were there for a few hours and then headed back to Seville. Nice relaxing way to spend the Saturday
