A Bodega and a sampling of Sevilla

We've lived here for about 15 months now and we finally had our first family visitors come stay with us. I had been counting down the days ever since they bought their airline tickets. My older sister, Whitney and my little brother, Seth flew in together for a fun-filled 9 day Spanish vacation with yours… Continue reading A Bodega and a sampling of Sevilla
