SEVILLE & MALAGA. Spent the latest weekend exploring 2 very beautiful places. Seville was a charming old town all on it’s own-you could feel it’s rustic scent as wherever you walked. There were cathedrals literally everywhere, but we only managed to visit the popular cathedral-Catedral de Santa María de la Sedeand it was beautiful. The view from the tower(which we climbed 35 stories for) was breathtaking. We also had a really good tapas dinner at Overjas Negrasit was one of the best tapas i’ve ever taken in my entire life, compared to both in Spain and back in SG. I highly recommend visiting this cosy little joint if you find yourself in Seville. But do make an advanced reservation, we had to wait 2 hours before we got our table(though it was worth the wait!).

Malaga itself is known for being a resort area, so we decided on booking a nice hotel for our 1 night stay there. We got a room at Doubletree by Hilton Resort and Spa Reserva del Higuerón, and had one of the most warm, relaxing stays there. They are a little short on staff(i presume because it’s a pretty new establishment in Malaga), but if there’s really no need to rush when you’re there, or Spain in general heh.
We opted for breakfast to be included since there’s really no other place to get food besides in the hotel since it’s located in the middle of some mountaintop-the spread was really nice though. Be prepared to spend more than usual on meals since you have to eat the hotel due to limited access to other food outlets(unless you take a taxi out to the town), but the food provided by the hotel had really good standards so we didn’t mind paying a little more for this trip. Moreover, the poolside meals overlooking the town and ocean was worth the price.

We were pretty lucky as it was relatively warm whilst we were there, especially in Malaga where it ranged from 16-21 degreesC on average, with the sun out 90% of the time. I’d encourage you to visit these 2 places if you’re in Spain, they are really lovely towns.

I’ll be heading to the city of love this weekend, and i’m really excited for it since i’ve always wanted to visit there. Updates on Paris next week!

    1. Hi! It was a short trip for me but i think i enjoyed the food the most. I highly recommend heading to the Tapas restaurant i mentioned in this post. Also, do go to the main square where the cathedral and Alcazar palace is, it’s really a pretty sight in the day:)
