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.

Things to do in Bath England (Attractions) | Travel from Bath to Stonehenge/Mad Max Tours

Before leaving for the United Kingdom, I was terrified. Questions rattled through my mind like the lumbering trains I’d be travelling on through Britain. Would I catch my plane? Would I get on the right train? Would I end up on the wrong plane, heading for Saskatchewan?

Luckily, none of those things happened. I have traveled with my family before but my trip to the United Kingdom would be my first outside Canada on my own. For both avid travellers and those newly bitten by the travel bug, it is no secret. Travelling alone can cause some jitters.

My adventure began earlier than expected when our plane landed for a stopover in Glasgow Scotland.  Sitting around a Scottish airport listening to a funny security guard was a great way to start my trip across Great Britain.

When I arrived  in England, I was so worried. I stood in the wrong line at customs. Then the arrivals area caused me untold difficulty. It wasn’t boding well for my trip.  Finally, I  had to face my first nemesis. The train boards.

After standing around and gawking at the train boards, I found my first platform. A special thank you must go out to a helpful English lady who assisted me by telling me the correct train and carriage as well.

In addition, thank you to the conductor who told me that the station I was going to get off at was not the safest. This would probably be my only blog entry if I went there.
