A v Spain (Seville) 11.2.2009

Words and pictures by Mark Raven

Spain v England, Seville

Once again this was a very brief trip due to saving holiday for the 2 away qualifiers coming up this year (and the friendly in Holland). I opted for the Thomson Sport day trip from Gatwick. I went back to a mates house after seeing Brighton lose 4-2 at home to Peterbrough, the less said about that the better!

We left Collington at 3am and picked up another mate in Eastbourne on the way to Gatwick. We arrived just after 4.30 am and had soon booked in. We took off about 6.30am and landed about 9.30am (1 hour time difference). We were soon on coaches into the centre and by 10.30am settled in a bar so we could plan our day.

We strolled towards the cathederal and main square.
The Cathederal and and its Giralda tower dominate
the sky line

We stop at the Irish pub for a swift one,
before moving on to the local bars

Bullring (Plaza de Toros)

Torre del Oro and back into the centre

A few more places we visisted

We possibly stopped at a couple more bars!!!
