Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: Seville & Portugal

Day 7 in Spain saw us up early to drive into Seville and spy. I knew it would be hot this day so I thought we would just spend a little bit of time here and then head on for a relaxing day at camp, but we really didn't get to camp till almost dinner time! I really enjoyed wandering around here!


We were super lucky and found a parking spot right next to our first stop - Parque de María Luisa

This park was so nice to wander around! There were all the clay sculptures

And lot of waterfountains







And all the plants and birds! 








At the end of the park (from our direction) was Plaza de España which was gorgeous!

I'll be honest - I have never been a ceramic tile fan, but after seeing this place in Seville I was won over. It was beautiful!








There were all of these ceramic benches along the bottom with different places in Spain & Portugal highlighted




So much fun to wander through! We spent so much time in this park as we loved it!

Then wandered to the Cathedral and farther around town










Until we got to Setas de Sevilla - the farthest sight to see




We had stopped and gotten some chorizo red bell pepper empanadas from Empanadas Malvón for lunch along the way - they were really good

And a carrot cake cronut from Chök which...no. I do not understand this. I would much rather have a donut or a croissant and not something that is neither and way worse! The carrot cake was good


After lunch it was more wandering back towards the car


Along the river



Seville was so nice and definitely on the go back to list when it is not so hot! It was 30C by the time we left which is too much, but all the restaurants had these giant swamp coolers and things that misted you the entire time to try and help keep you cool. 

Afterwards we headed on to camp (Camping Olhao) which was a place across the border in Portugal! It had a nice swimming pool so we had a swim! We saw this on one of the other campers and I thought it was silly. We did see some flying flamingos while swimming which was so much fun!! Tomorrow more Portugal adventures!

13.91km walked/7 flights (Seville is also very flat!)

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
