Welcome back to Traveling with Krushworth.

This past May, I travelled by myself to Spain. This was my second solo adventure and it started with me landing in Madrid. After seeing the sights of the nation’s capital, I headed south by train to Cordoba and finally onto Seville.

Today’s posting features the amazing Seville Cathedral, the largest cathedral in the world and the third largest church on Earth.

First things first. For those who have never travelled alone, know that it is a hectic experience. I got off the train at Santa Justa station and immediately, my first task was to find the bus station, which ended up being across the street.

Travel Tip: If you’re standing at a bus station and you’re worried about how to get to your destination, make sure you ask lots of questions to those around you (if they look relatively normal). This helps to avoid possible confusion and getting lost. 

Thank you to the young man who pointed me onto the correct bus and told me which stop to get off at. I probably would have ended up in another city without his assistance. My hotel was at the far north end of the city’s historic district.

Once at my accommodations, I almost immediately set out towards Seville’s heritage core. Even though I had my map in hand and excitement to boot, my day was derailed when I became horribly lost. Yet, I ended up seeing Seville’s Metropol Parasol, a massive wooden structure in the Plaza Encarnacion.

Although the art installation is not that far off the beaten path, I ended up getting even more lost (I’m not that great with maps) and was absolutely exhausted by the time I saw Seville Cathedral. The hike from my hostel to the cathedral, which was supposed to be 20 minutes, ended up being a lot longer, because I hadn’t got the hang of the streets yet.

My Top 10 Attractions in London: Traveling with Krushworth – Things to do – Places to see

London, England is one of the world’s most amazing cities and it’s one of my favourite that I’ve had the opportunity to visit.

Great Britain’s history has spanned thousands of years, but the city of London’s heritage stretches back to the year A.D. 50 when Londinium, a major site for Roman Empire commerce, began.

Many travellers have their top 10 attractions in London. Since I love the city’s history, this is my list. They’re in no particular order, because it’s hard to rank them based on their history.

In the middle of Edinburgh, lies Greyfriar’s Kirkyard, known not only for Greyfriar’s Bobby, but also for being one of the scariest places in the world. It is said George Mackenzie’s poltergeist wanders the graveyard and attacks visitors. I went on a graveyard tour and found it creepier during the day.
